Hello and welcome to episode 103 of The Mindful Kind podcast and the third episode in the mini-series about communication!
In this episode, I've shared all my top tips for public speaking (by the way, I was terrified of public speaking for a really long time!).
1 // Feel whatever you need to feel and try to be non-judgemental
2 // Make decisions in advance (such as what you'll wear, how you'll travel to the event etc)
3 // Prepare for the possibility of forgetting your words
4 // Use memory tools, such as note cards, slides, or a workbook
5 // Use a mnemonic device
6 // Include interactive sections
7 // Start with something simple to talk about
8 // Use your hands
9 // Make eye contact
10 // Don't worry if people aren't paying attention
11 // Breathe
12 // Exercise the morning of your presentation
13 // Remember that you probably don't appear as nervous as you feel
14 // Balance out negative thoughts with positive thoughts
15 // Know that what you say matters!
I hope you have a wonderful week, Mindful Kind!
