How to make a speech clearly in public
Public speaking is very different from private speaking.
The audience is often strangers.
They are different from your friends and your family. They don’t know everything about you, they just have a general understanding of you.
When talking with family and friends, because there have been too many contacts before, the conversation between them is actually greatly simplified from any angle.
For example, when you say “some people .” to friends and family, 1) they know that what you say is more likely to be one of them, and 2) they also know that what you say is more likely to be not one of them.
Regardless of the topic behind “Some people .”, you may have discussed it before, or you may have discussed at least some related topics, so many details are “self-explanatory” to you.
However, when you say “some people .” to a group of strangers, it is impossible to determine whether “some people” include yourself.
As a result, communication differences have begun to creep up.
If the speaker does not pay attention to the existence of this difference and its important impact, then subsequent communication will certainly have many difficulties.
This is just a small example, “some people .” is a common and seemingly insignificant sentence.
However, there may be such communication differences in almost every place, cause and effect, comparison, substitution, variables, etc . So, it is really difficult to say “tell clearly” because you are facing more than just a stranger, But many, many strangers.
Keep in mind that listeners are strangers.
At least, before they accept you.
In the beginning, novices may not even notice this.
Even if noticed, it seems helpless.
Because “misunderstanding” is, after all, something that occurs in the listener’s mind, the speaker cannot obtain the existence and content of misunderstanding before and during the lecture.
Sometimes the listener’s expression tells us that there must be something wrong, but it doesn’t make us understand what the problem is.
There is always a solution: take face-to-face communication with the audience after the lecture is taken seriously.
First of all, keep the peace of mind, and then carefully record every feedback from the audience.
Basically, don’t rush to justify yourself (don’t question doubts or doubts), or even rush to answer the question, but try to determine the true question of the questioner by backdating (you mean “.”), and thenAnswer seriously.
Don’t be afraid of “no answer”.
Novices are novices and need to be tempered, this is not shameful.
It’s a shame that you don’t know how to pretend, but you can’t support it.
The audience has no patience for this kind of person. Think about it in other words. If it is you, you may directly classify such a person into a certain category and ignore it from now on.
All questions that ca n’t be answered, difficult to answer, and not answered clearly, are written down and written down, in case you are reminded to go back and do your homework.
Records on the spot will also make the audience understand that you will seriously consider their problems.
Then, be sure to tell the questioner that when you go back, you will immediately figure out a way to figure it out and will give him feedback as soon as possible.
In doing so, it is not shameful; instead, it may win respect.
