Crush it! 5 Powerful tips to Master Public Speaking by #WCW Shinjini Das

Hey guys!

Hope your week is off to a good start. Unfortunately, as mentioned, I’ve been pretty sick so I’ve been tending to that. Any get well soon remedies would be VERY appreciated.

Okay so I have a fun little feature today !!

You guys remember #WCW Shinjini Das of Das Media? Well she’s back and spilling all her secrets on public speaking.

Personally, I am excited for this article in a selfish way. It’s something I need all the help I can get with. I am very… awkward, if you will?… when it comes to public speaking.

To be blunt, I deal with social anxiety which really attributes to it. It’s something I’m truly working on {& post for another day, but something sativa helps me with}, but for now… halp?

Shinijni makes it so easy. She had me hooked ever since sharing with me her love for go-getter girls.

Now to be honest, I think a lot of this goes a bit deeper than public speaking, but also blogging. #2, just sub mirror for a word processor where you throw in test posts, or your notes app on the iPhone, or video content. For two years before I launched Champagne at Shannon’s, I made mock-blog posts and kept a running list of blog topics that I still reflect on to this day. More on that here & here.

Though we are behind computer screens, blogging is a different, modern way of public speaking… which can lead to plenty more.

So… even if you don’t have any personal gigs but run a blog, vlog, podcast {aka the new black} or even an instagram, these tips are very helpful to find success.

Anyways, am I totally off base with the personal speaker & blogger analogy? Let me know in the comments

Well, let’s kick things off with my favourite go-getter babe, Shinjini Das!

 

5 Powerful Tips to Become the Public Speaker of Your Dreams!

Let us be honest.

Public speaking is hard… like, super hard…. bthe good news is that you can very much improve your public speaking skills with practice, my go-getter girl!

The ability to public speak is one of the greatest gifts in the world and one that you can most definitely use practice to improve!

Focus your energy to master each of these 5 strategies and you will notice that your comfort with public speaking as well as ability to WERK a crowd are top-notch!

Here are my top 5 most powerful tips for you to become the public speaker of your dreams. <

Ready. Set. Go. SPEAK!

 

 

ONE }: Own your confidence in your area of expertise & research your points of conversation

Always remember, my #gogettergirl, you are the expert in this room, so there is absolutely no reason for you to feel like you don’t know what you are talking about or that perhaps you have no expertise. You have done the work to be educating those in the room.

Totally OWN your confidence!

TWO }: Practice your speech in front of a mirror for a couple of hours before your presentation

The art of transformational public speaking begins and ends with practice. I am talking hours and hours and hours. Since speaking is so personal, you literally must stand in front of a mirror, watch yourself showcase body language, & pronounce the words of your speech to make it real!

THREE }: Outline the content of your speech in the structure you feel best represents your flow

A solid speech is characterized by substantial content which motivates the audience to feel deeply, act, and overall, be fully energized to achieve their dreams! You must take great care to establish a framework for your presentation which aligns with your deeply held mission while speaking publicly.

 

 

FOUR }: Visualize your audience falling in love with what you say and how you say what you say

This is a big one. All too often, we get entangled with our own words in our own heads, so to create your own impact, you must truly see yourself being successful in spreading your message before your audiences. Visualize them learning and growing from the knowledge you give them.

FIVE }: Personalize your content and delivery to your specific audience because this matters a lot

Personalization of content is key to your success as a public speaker because each audience is different from the one before and the one coming after. You must absolutely learn the uniquely differentiated drivers of people and techniques to best relate to those who want to learn from you

  • can’t get enough of pinot noir 🍷 I personally think they can go with almost anything {same w champagne & rosé}. We recently joined @saintsburywinery and absolutely love them. Awesome Pinots & Chards. They are so easy to get to from SF, right across from the @carnerosresort, &  the tasting experience there is just a BLAST ✨
〰️
I’ll get it all on the blog but some of the standout pinots were:
⚜️2016 Pratt Vineyard {Sonoma Coast} :: the Sonoma Coast is my fav region up here. More on that another day but this was SO GOOD. Think lavender, violet, dark fruit, blood orange, & racy acidity... dying to be drank w some proscuitto
⚜️ 2016 Sundawg {Russian River Valley} :: bright juicy cherries with a toasty nuttiness and tomato leaf - seriously!! Each sip just begs for another and another and another...
⚜️2016 Stanly Ranch {Carneros} :: lush berries, Tahitian vanilla, & cigars. A pinot with some serious sex appeal. This wine is def one to impress... but make sure your company is worth it, like don’t waste this on a kcufboy lol
...we even got to taste a 2002 Carneros Pinot which was just SMASHING. It’s amazing how complex and intriguing it was.
〰️
Ok now bc I’m so curious, what pinot would you choose? ps - don’t miss their rosé of pinot noir, SO juicy but still dry and only like $22 ✨ #slswine #pinotnoir #winetasting #sonomacoast #russianrivervalley #carneros #napavalley #saintsburywinery
