If you are a marketer, manager or business owner, and you want to become a better public speaker and communicator, then listen in as Carly Shorter gives us 5 amazing tips that will improve your public speaking and communication skills.
Being able to communicate your message clearly and concisely is such an important skill. Whether you have staff that you want to get your point across to or need to motivate or whether you do sales presentations or demonstrations for your work or business, being able to do it in a way that is engaging and interesting makes a really big difference to the result you will get.
If I think of some of the most successful business leaders, they all are extremely good communicators. Look at Steve Jobs as an example, he was highly charismatic in his product launch events. Richard Branson is of the same charismatic ilk. If you can communicate clearly and be memorable in doing so, people are more likely to remember it, action it and you will get a better outcome.
