Episode 249 No Sweat Public Speaking with Fred Miller
Speaking in front of others is one of the top fears almost all humans have, and I know because I used to take F’s in speech class.
Our guest today shares this. “It really is real, it's most people's greatest fear. And the short answer and people have it because it's not natural. You know, if you think about it, most of our conversations are one on one, they're on the phone, you don't see the person. A lot of people these days, especially younger ones, they're just texting or emailing, you don't see or hear them. They get in front of an audience like, wow, this is really, different.”
We are joined by a special guest, Fred Miller. Fred is a speaker, a best-selling author, and an international presentation coach. His books, “NO SWEAT Public Speaking!” and “NO SWEAT Elevator Speech!” are purchased internationally, and have rave reviews on Amazon.com
Fred teaches we're much too tough on ourselves. One thing I always ask the audience, Mike, I ask,” Is anybody sitting out there thinking, man, I can't wait till Fred screws up? I'll be on his Facebook page, his LinkedIn page.” Most of them are glad that you're up there, and they're not. This fear of public speaking. And you have obviously also, it's an equal opportunity fear. It doesn't care about your age, education, or occupation.
Fred explains why stories are the emotional glue that connects your audience to your message and what you must do to find and build your stories.
Also, in this episode with Fred Miller, you will learn how to put together a presentation full of imagery and ideas that pop and keep the attention of your audience, whether a team meeting or a keynote speech in front of thousands.
