Great public speakers are made, not born.
Public speaking can be terrifying if you lack the eloquence or other qualities to inspire. If your speaking skills are lacking, your presentation will probably not relay your message effectively.
These five qualities will bolster your presentations to inspire and influence your audience:
1. Confidence. A public speaker who exudes confidence is seen as more credible, knowledgeable, intelligent and likable. It’s natural to be nervous, but public speakers must overcome jitters. The key is to practice, practice, practice. Once you’re feeling solid, confidence will flow naturally.
