I wanted to take the time to share with you my public speaking teaching resources. These are great because they really can help you conquer your public speaking fears and general flaws. I found the best way to learn is by doing. There is just no other way to properly learn. Standing in front of the mirror giving a speech or in front of your family, isn’t really doing it.
The first rule of public speaking is to make sure that your speech is well organized and you are prepared. If you are not, your audience will most likely be able to sense it and respond poorly. However, if you are confident and the speech you have put together has been well thought out and has true substance, your audience will respond in kind.

At 16, I began to sing in a local restaurant. I was shy, performing in public made me uncomfortable, but I continued to work on my presentation skills, including doing vocal exercises to increase my vocal range. Fortunately, it was a small venue and the customers said I did a pretty good job of singing one of my favorite songs, John Denver’s Leaving on a Jet Plane.
In our day to day life, we speak a lot on a lot of issues. But when it is public speaking, we become silent. It’s just because of our ignorance of what public speaking is and how it is to be delivered. Decision is on your hand whether you follow public speaking tips and become successful in public speaking or remain the unsuccessful and shameful public speaker.
