It starts with authenticity
Key wisdom from this chapter
- Authenticity wins: audiences are increasingly looking for speakers they trust – and showing you’re a genuine human being is the best way to win them over.
- Speaking from the heart is not just ‘fluff’ – it works: if a speaker engages the emotions of an audience, they are more able to influence them.
- With authenticity comes power: knowing that you’re being authentic gives you unshakeable solidity in your public speaking.
- Purpose beats nerves: when you have a purpose behind your speaking, it becomes more important than any nerves you might be feeling.
