Three things float to the top of the list regarding fears people have. One is feeling safe! Another is death and the third is public speaking! There are three moving parts to a good speaker! The first category is voice quality! The rate of speed you talk, your tone and the pitch of your voice. This is just as important as the second moving part which is; consciously composing succinct messaging full of relevant information people want to hear. The third moving part to a good speaker is exuding confidence and passion, with a hint of persuasion connected to your message.

Before going out for speaking engagements or media interviews consider the following methodology to boost your esteem.
1. Passionate about your topic, speak with clarity! 2. Research and gather background information to make your point. 3. Your physical energy should be lighthearted with the occasional smile to the audience. This helps turn off defensive or angry buttons if someone disagrees or annoys you while speaking.
4. Verbiage that speaks to your demographic. 5. Speak loud enough, yet pleasant tones. 6. Most of all don't forget to leave the stage after you promised to conclude. Respect the time given to you! Take advantage of your time after the event to engage audience members, this is where the magic happens. You're able to gain friendships, followers and potential clients.
