Relax, read and let it inspire you – meanwhile joining us won’t be any error, afterall that’s part of the ‘Passive income’ I have always talked to you about.
Let’s check it out!
1. They survey their audience
The first thing every great motivational speaker does on receiving a letter of engagement is to make a research of the audience he’s to speak to. With this you can have their age, profession, philosophy and probably their expectations.
2. They make good use of the time given to them
This is simple! Nothing annoys an audience like having a speaker who doesn’t keep to time. Not only not keeping to time but wastes time. Great motivational speakers maximize the time. So, if you’re aiming to become one in future, note this!
3. They use simple-to-understand words
Yeah! No need of big grammar otherwise you lose the audience’s concentration. The essence of communication is to get the listeners to learn.
Great speakers talk and listen – both to themselves and to audience. By using simple words you get to participate.
4. They leave the audience better than they met them
This can be done by using highly motivating words. Words when listened people will scream, “I have never heard anyone talk like this before.” If you can meet their demands you will come back to speak.
5. They end well
This talks about their conclusion. They make it friendly and entertaining. On concluding, remind them of what you expect them to do.
