How to turn a breakup into a powerful self-discovery journey
Learn the simple speechwriting strategy that took me to the semifinals of Spain’s Speaker Talent show. Let’s do this!
Challenging yourself to speak in uncomfortable scenarios is the BEST you could do to strengthen your confidence muscle.
I’ll share my simple speechwriting strategy that took me to the Semifinals!
But before we start, please STOP believing your lies:
‘I hate to be in the spotlight’
‘This is not my thing’
‘I’m not meant for this’
You have a voice, right? That’s ALL you need for public speaking (plus my guidance of course 😉 )
So, grab that pen and learn how to write a speech to hipnotise your audience.
Just integrate my simple speechwriting strategy that got me to the Semifinals of Spain’s Biggest Speaker contest!
✅ Open with a story you have experienced first hand, connect to that emotion, share a deep learning or transformation, so “you’ll feel your words”. I opened with my mother’s death and what I learned from it.
✅ Don’t go over the world limit (always leave room for error and improvisation). Realease the need to ‘sound intelligent’ and avoid packing your speech with too much data. As I always tell my students ‘less data and more personality’.
✅ Maximum concision. Get to the point. Remove flourishes. Less is more. Honour people’s time & attention.
✅ Read your script out loud, record or film yourself and readjust your words to sound more comfortable and natural.
✅ Hire a Speaking Coach or practice with your friends & family and observe their reactions. Are they bored or engaged? Readjust if necessary to cause more impact.
✅ Your INTRO and OUTRO should be powerful. Remember to end your speech ‘clean’ without leaving sentences ‘hanging’ (it transmits insecurity).
✅Always end your speech with actionable takeaways that your audience can apply to their lives right away. As inspirational speakers, our PURPOSE is inspiring people into ACTION.
✅Mindset: this is NOT about you, it’s about your audience. So FOCUS on building a SOLID bridge to deliver a powerful message to THEM.
Learning to feel ‘comfortable’ in the uncomfortable is pure ART my friend.
During my speech, my heart was pumping so hard that I could hear it banging in my chest. So… I definitely practise what I preach hahaha!
Next week we will cover ‘How to deliver a speech with confidence’, you don’t wanna miss it!
Your Voice matters, make it HEARD.
P.S. Congrats to my Speaking Lions student, Lua, who had her first TV gig!
“This course showed me that charisma is a skill you can learn. You can learn to be charismatic, if you believe in you. Now I see speaking opportunities everywhere!”.
