    10 Public Speaking Myths Busted

    10 Public Speaking Myths Busted

    Some public speaking myths have been around for years. I have no idea how they continue to be perpetuated. Hopefully, this episode will help bring these myths to an end ... at least for those who listen to it.
     
    The 10 myths covered in this episode include:
    To become an excellent speaker, just get more speaking gigs.
    If you get nervous when looking people in the eye, looking above their heads is just as effective.
    Some people are natural-born speakers.
    To be less nervous, imagine that the people in the audience are in their underwear.
    To deliver effective presentations, you need just two things: to know what you’re talking about and the guts to speak in front of people.
    It's a good idea to have a drink or two to calm your nerves before presenting.
    You can effectively evaluate your presentation by looking into a mirror when rehearsing.
    Winging your presentation makes it appear fresh and authentic.
    Speaking loudly is obnoxious and overbearing.
    To be an excellent presenter, you just need to demonstrate your passion for your topic.
     
    Listen in and learn why these myths just don't hold water.
