Want to enhance your persuasive
public speaking skills? Perhaps you have already spoken
before an audience, have given a great speech, have influenced
them considerably to your point and have received a standing
ovation a few times. Now you wish to improve that foundation
you have in persuasive public speaking.
Here are 4 ways that can help
you to become a more influential speaker.
1) Body language.
Majority of human communication
is done nonverbally, and people commonly respond and understand
it very well, having said that we primarily did not have formal
education on nonverbal language.
In order to effectively connect
with your audience, mean what you're saying through nonverbal
cues. These include eye contact, hand gestures, pacing and the
like to stress your words and statements.
For instance, if you're trying
to imply a very important point, you may point a finger up.
If you're telling a story, pace a short distance citing you're
bringing them to a certain point.
speakers also have their eyes to help them capture their audience.
Some public speakers like to give piercing gazes to different
parts of the crowd when talking about a certain issue.
you want to have power over others, let your eyes do half of
the talking for you. Practice your facial expressions in front
of the mirror until you get used to the feeling.
You would be surprised what difference
as an audience it would make if the speaker simply went through
his speech purely verbal.
speakers use their voices as their main weapon. They change
their tone and their volume depending on what kind of impression
they want to leave to their audience.
the public speaker wants to intimidate the people, he would
probably harden his voice and raise the volume a little bit
more. On the other hand, if the speaker is looking for sympathy,
he would probably soften his voice down to an almost whisper.
Influence is your main concern
when speaking before an audience so you have to know what you're
talking about. You have to persuade them into considering the
point that you're trying to make by citing facts, accepted truths
and sources to show that your speech is actually based on something
Realize that there is no debate
or an exchange between you and them, so you have to be very
mindful of every single aspect of your speech or they may find
you stereotypical; or worse, they may see you contradicting
your own statements.
Do some research and be open
about new ideas and opinions before speaking; this will further
guide you how to be a more persuasive speaker.
Treat your audience, no matter
how great or small in number, as your utmost concern. They are
the reason you are speaking, so feel for them as if your message
and efforts will be in vain if you cannot convince them to your
point of view.
You have to create a link between
you and your audience to successfully deliver your speech. This
connection can be made through personal anecdotes, humor or
even asking an audience to speak a little.
The goal is to be able to create
feelings between you and your audience where they will know
that it matters to you that they listen. This will be the basis
for a smooth flow for the duration of the speech and probably
the key to persuasion.
In a persuasive speech, you as
the public speaker should know how to persuade and convince.
The audience should be driven to a point of influence that your
message will successfully be delivered and received. Repetition
of ideas, facts and opinions will bring them to your point and
positively boost your persuasive public speaking
