Speak in public with confidence
When you want to speak in public with confidence it’s important to know that confidence is a feeling you have. You can feel confident while speaking with your friends or family, but feel really unconfident speaking in public to people you don’t know or just big groups.
The three ways of looking
There three ways you can look when you’re speaking in public. You can look at yourself, to the world around you or you can have a look at your story. It’s important to know that you can’t literally look at yourself, but you can create a visual representation of yourself in your mind. Just as you can do with the story you’re trying to tell.
Experienced a fantastic workshop Thursday! Developing yourself in a playful and relaxed manner. I came to surprising insights about myself. I absolutely recommend this workshop!

Speaking in public with more confidence
Looking at yourself is the thing you only want to do when you’re literally looking in a mirror. But there are ways it can be triggered, like people that are looking at you. You see that for example someone in the audience yawns. And you start wondering what they could be experiencing, are they bored, tired or something else? That’s where it goes wrong, what you can do is look at other people instead look at the individuals as a whole person, apart from the group. Go back and think about the story you were telling and create a visual for yourself of that.
What may help you to create a visual of your story is look up, by only using your eye movement. When you follow these tips you will immediately speak in public with more confidence.
