We had a great public speaking workshop in New York, NY! We now have a dozen new fearless presenters in The Big Apple.
The class learned how important first impressions are. When we begin to speak, the impression that we make in the first 7 seconds is often the way that our audience may continue to view us as we deliver our presentation. That’s why it very important to make a great first impression when we first start our speech.
We have all heard that it’s important to stand straight, smile, and make good eye contact. But it equally important to show energy and enthusiasm for your topic when you speak. If you don’t show an audience that you are excited to be presenting your topic, they may lose interest. (It doesn’t matter what you say if they are not paying attention.)
If you can’t be excited about your topic, then why should your audience be even the slightest bit interested in what you have to say? So the next time that you speak, remember to also focus on your excitement and enthusiasm. That will make a great first impression that will carry forward throughout your presentation.
