Real Stories and Examples

To create a connection to your audience, it is better to start with some examples or real stories for them to connect with what you are discussing. A pure content-based discussion is boring, especially when the entire presentation consists of theories and assumptions. Again, it is best to relate every discussion to stories and examples so that it will be easy for the audience to picture what you want to portray. In fact, stories have the potential to increase the retention of your messages in your audience’s minds. There is another advantage in using real stories and examples when establishing a connection with your audience. Telling stories allows you to build rapport with audience members since you will be seen as someone who shares similar experiences with the everyday man.

Jokes

Another way to appeal to the audience is through the use of humor. Not everybody possesses this talent but it doesn’t mean that you would lose out to witty speakers. By using appropriate jokes to bring out certain key points in your speech can help anchor them stronger in the audience’s minds. Such ‘wit’ can be prepared beforehand and when the occasion arises, say the intended punchline timely for a desired effect. Humor also has the subtle ability in creating a friendly, amicable atmosphere that can help build a more approachable image in you as a speaker.

Audience Interaction

One of the best ways to assess how well a speaker is performing on stage is when the audience asks challenging questions. You, as the presenter, must be able to stay calm and answer the queries professionally. If some questions are valid but difficult to answer, you should let the audience know that you will have to return a reply as soon as you have the answer. This is a public speaking tip that can help enhance your standing as a true professional.

Public speaking is more than just standing in front of an audience and making a presentation. It is a lot of work and it needs preparation for it to be successful. The public speaking tips given above are frequent strategies used by successful public speakers to connect with their audience.
