Energy and Enthusiasm is the Secret to All Great Presenters
Most people know that the secret to being a great presenter is to have lots of energy and enthusiasm, but enthusiasm is also a great way to reduce public speaking fear. We are continuing with the 10 Ways to Reduce Public Speaking Fear series, and public speaking tip number nine is that enthusiasm is the secret to fantastic presentations. When your audience makes their first impression of you as a speaker, are they thinking, "this person is really good," or are they thinking, "man this is boring"? Your enthusiasm will likely determine this impression. If you have energy, your audience will give you good positive feedback (see tip #7: Look for Positive Feedback from Your Audience). When you see that positive feedback, your confidence will grow right away.
