In answering this question, you are in fact describing the characteristics that make you an exceptional person. When these characteristics are discovered you are now taping into the values of a great presenter. Public Speaking is all about marketing yourself, inclusive of: your ideas, discoveries, beliefs, experiences or facts.
It matters how you look and how you say it. Despite how valuable your message is, if it is not conveyed in an appealing way, for instance if your appearance is inappropriate, or if there’s an abuse of grammatical errors it is hardly going to be accepted or clearly understood by your audience. Like a Sales Representative you are responsible for selling the product, which is yourself or your ideas. How effective you are at doing this depends on the time and effort you’ve invested in learning your product and your audience. Therefore, it is worth:
- Being relevant in your presentation.
- Use relatable words, language and illustrations.
- Being cautious in your use of grammar.
- Organized in your presentation.
- Be confident in yourself and what you have to say.
- Knowing and connecting with your audience.
Discovering your worth as it relates to public speaking, would require a lot of self-talk, practice and research. Believe in who you are and your message. You are invaluable and what you have to say is important. Now sell yourself to the best of your ability and your audience would recognize your worth and accept your message.
