After leading Levendi Winery to success following its founding in the year 2000, David Gianulias has been called upon to give lectures to budding entrepreneurs, sharing his experiences with them. This means he needs to be comfortable speaking in front of large groups of people, which is something that many people find difficult. If you find yourself struggling to make a splash as a public speaker, try to keep all of these pointers in mind.
Public speaking is rarely something that comes easily to people, which is why the best often spend hours practicing what they are going to say away from the stage. Not only do you need to practice the specific speeches and lectures that you create, but you also need to work on your body language and delivery if you are going to become capable of engaging an audience and holding its attention for the duration of the presentation.
Take It Slow
Many people who are uncomfortable with public speaking end up rushing from the moment that they hit the stage, which leads to mistakes piling up and audiences becoming less engaged. Instead of doing this, you should take it slow and establish your control over the room before speaking. Look around the room and take a deep breath to settle yourself before you start talking, as this will serve to calm your nerves and get you ready for the speech.
Own Your Mistakes
There will be times when David Gianulias flubs his lines while he is giving a lecture. It happens to even the best public speakers and it is really nothing that you should worry yourself about. If you do happen to make a mistake, try making a joke about it or just move on without giving the error more attention than it deserves. If you can’t move on from the mistake, you are likely to make more as you continue talking.
