Success and Failure in Public Speaking

by Coach Kardan

When we strive to become a master speaker, it is never going to be an overnight miracle. It takes practice and experience to become an outstanding speaker.

One way to become better is to create success patterns through experience. If something works well on an audience – for example the way you opened your speech, your direct conversation with a member of the audience, use of BGM, use of slides, use of a wireless mic, a funny joke – you want to make sure to keep this as a success model and use it again in another future presentation. After each presentation, take a moment to look back and take notes on what was appreciated and well received.

On the other hand, if something doesn’t work well, this is a failure pattern (for example a bad joke). Perhaps the audience didn’t understand the joke, or even worse, you offended them. Then, you know definitely not to use it again.

To be an exceptional speaker, don’t try to copy someone else. Have your authentic style but create your own success patterns, so you know what works well for you.

Failure patterns can be a tough and painful (and sometimes embarrassing) experience, but they are also important since you learn from them. The more painful – the more you will remember that moment and never repeat it again!

With love and respect,
