Following are 5 Great Ways Which Help Individuals in Overcoming the Fear Of Public Speaking:

Do Not Step Back Because Of Imperfection:

No one is perfect in this world. Actually, everyone is aware of this fact but still when it comes to speaking in front of the public some people hesitate. The problem is that individuals always magnify their deficiency and ignores the good things about themselves. Do you know a fact that the professional speaker also makes some mistakes? Yes! But the best part is that they never stop or get nervous and continue their speech. It is one of the best ways of overcoming the fear of stage.

Be Patient and keep Practicing:

It will take time to reduce fear of speaking in front of the audience. One should have to keep patient and continue the practice to hone the speaking skill. It is also advisable for individuals to rehearse their presentation several times. This will help people in adding or deleting some information where is necessary. More practice you did, less dread your feel while speaking in the crowd.

Take a Deep Breathe:

Actually, the breath gives the control on stress. Hence, it is advisable to take a deep breath before and during any presentation. This will help in calming the nerves as well as give strength to the voice. The professional Doug Vermeeren recommend people to take deep breathes five times before giving the presentation in front of the crowd.

Divide Speech into Different Sections:

If you are asked to give a presentation, then never let your anxiety overwhelm you. A Financial Seminar Speaker recommends the people to break down their task into small sections. Prepare each section separately and then combine the entire presentation together. This will make your more confident about your speech and overcome the fear too.

Speak From Heart Rather Than Memorizing Every Single Word:

Doug Vermeeren | Speak From Your Heart

Never try to remember every single word of your speech. Doing this increase the nervousness if you miss any sequence of the word that you are trying to memorize. Rather than remembering everything, try to speak from your heart. Always try to use the language according to the audience you are interacting with. According to Douglas Vermeeren, this is great to talk about your own personal experience in order to engage the audience.

Most speakers aren’t prepared.

10X Your Speaking Business Douglas Vermeeren fail

Wait? What do you mean? Most speakers are not prepared? Douglas Vermeeren. And I’m offended. (Actually this is the response I get most of the time when I tell speakers they are unprepared.

Okay… so where’s my evidence?  Well, it’s easy. Just look at he results at the end of their presentation. Sure they can talk from the stage. But if their goal is to have people connect with them further, maybe buy a program, product or workshop then they have failed. This all comes down to practice and preparation.

If your goal of selling something didn’t happen… you weren’t prepared. Got it?

End Rant.

Your Credibility as a Speaker is Weak.

10X Your speaking business douglas vermeeren credibility.jpg

According to Douglas Vermeeren most speakers don’t fully understand the importance or process of attaining credibility. Most think that what they really need is a unique approach to present and a focus on a signature talk and personal story. While those things are interesting  they are not valuable. They also don’t build massive credibility for your brand.

In other words just telling your story isn’t enough to make you an expert. YOU MUST ACTUALLY UNDERSTAND YOUR MARKET AND DELIVER RESULTS DRIVEN VALUE. Ummm… is this important. Why the heck do you think I wrote in in caps??? It is paramount and this is what will separate speakers in the future between those who have careers and those who do it as a hobby. If you want to rise above the chaos that is the speaking business today drop the idea of a signature story making you special and valuable. It’s a lie taught by those who don’t understand the business.

What the industry supports is people who actually add value. You gain this kind of credibility by taking your speaking business seriously enough to invest the effort to understand the marketplace, the content that is occurring in the conversation, to create and think about things in an innovative pioneering way and just get good at working with people. Wow! Why aren’t people doing it?  (lazy? ego based?  unaware? I don’t know possibly all of the above. Most people think that the speaking business is easy money and they aren’t willing to do the work.)

It is work. Get on it.

End rant

Warning: Motivational Speakers Can’t Afford To Make Mistakes

10X Your Speaking Business Douglas Vermeeren are you right?

Over the last few months Doug Vermeeren have seen that many speaker trainers are starting to appear on the scene, while some of them have some interesting ideas most of them are sharing information that doesn’t work at a high level in todays marketplace. Ideas and concepts such as developing signature speeches, seeking out paid speaking events and so forth are very limited (if they will get you results at all)

The speaking business is undergoing a massive shift right now – simply due to the massive volume of people that are entering the speaking profession. That means that if you want to have a platform or a business you will need to be more valuable than anyone else in todays marketplace.

Those who cannot level up will be natural processes find themselves irrelevant in a hurry.

If you have a brilliant message you owe it to yourself to level up what you do. And that begins with getting better people to teach you. You can’t settle for paying someone who doesn’t have the skills to get you what you need in todays marketplace. Life is too short and you don’t have it to waste on theories that don’t work or tools that are decades old. If you want to become the best you need the best to help you. Good intentions and a heartfelt “speaker trainer” won’t get you there in today’s marketplace.

2 Things That Keep Speakers From Sharing Their Message

leave a comment »

10X Your speaking Business douglas Vermeeren inside

Douglas Vermeeren : Have you ever thought about how many brilliant people there are in the world. (And yes, you are one of them) Each of these people has an important and valuable lesson to share and as these message are shared with each other we can create more abundance, prosperity and advancement in every aspect of human happiness and satisfaction.

However there are many who aren’t sharing their message. In my experience there are two reasons

1) Some people are afraid to speak up and let their voice share their expertise. (That’s inside work)

2) People have a message and they aren’t afraid to share it but they are doing it wrong and so they never get noticed. They stay invisible and never find the people that need their message most. (This is outside work)

What’s the difference between inside and outside work?

Inside work is generally stuff that the individual needs to sort out. Yes, they can get help but it really is stuff they need to overcome.

Outside work is different. That’s the stuff that they can really only fix if they will get help from others like a mentor, coach or support group. Outside work is generally needed when someone has tried everything they know and still gets poor results. Outside work only improves as the individual is confident enough to ask for help and seek out people who can help them be more effective.
