Many professional speakers ignore the fact that your style is just as important as having great content. Style and content work together in your professional speeches. As a professional speaker you must establish your own unique style if you want your audience to remember your important points. Content will always be important but having a unique style is just as valuable.
As a speaker your job is to help the audience understand, remember, and apply your important points. If you have no style you will struggle reaching your audience and sparking interest. Good style helps the audience remember your great content. If your content is weak, then your leave your audience with a lot of unanswered questions. If your style is weak your audience will never listen to you.
There are many blog posts on how to present great content and move an audience to action, but how can you get great style?
You have to enjoy what you are presenting. You truly have to believe and stand behind your topic 100 percent if you want your great style to resonate with the audience. If you truly believe in your content, your enthusiasm will come out in your speech.
Remember to be yourself! Style is not about trying to be somebody else you want to find your own personal style. Once you find the perfect intersection between content and style you will be able to connect with your audience on a deeper level. Connecting with the audience is how you can inspire them to action.
I challenge you to take your speaking career to the next level and work on you speaking style.
