3 Tips To Enhance Your Public Speaking Skills
- Clarity of your outcomes
The outcomes of your speech/presentation should be clear to you and your audience, think of what you want to achieve from it and the outcomes you are looking for. These should be things that both you and the audience will benefit from. Your outcomes should leave a before-and-after effect on your audience, meaning that you have provided them with something new which is still useful for them after the end of the speech/presentation, such as a solution to a problem.

Therefore, being aware of this scale in everything you do will provide a clear measurement of how much you are contributing for your results. It can also serve as a reminder to raise your efforts in order to receive what you seek.
