Public Speaking with David Murray

Don’t rush in to start speaking, Do use the ‘Power of the Pause’ – 014

June 30, 2018

When you are feeling a bit nervous before delivering a presentation or public speaking, it is natural to want to get started as quickly as possible and get it over and done with. But if you do you are likely to rush and lose your way and will feel less confident.

Instead, before speaking pause for a count of 4 or 6 breaths. This will give you an opportunity to get used to your surroundings, gather your thoughts and give you a confidence boost before speaking. Do give it a try. This is the 'power of the pause'.

In the next episode I will be sharing a technique which will help you to stand out from the crowd. It is called 'The Power of 3'.
