How would your life and business change if you could speak in front of any number of people and sound as confident as you do when you share new ideas with your best friend?
If you are wondering ‘what does a public speaking coach do’, the short answer is that we are the ones who can make this dream-like scenario a reality for you.
Still, there is a lot more to it than that!
How solid public speaking skills can change your life and career
You have ideas that can make an impact on people’s lives. You know that. You feel it within.
But how will others understand that if you can’t finish a sentence without sweating or nervously reading out your notes? Worse, if you can’t even put yourself out there because your stage fright is holding you back?
When you master the skill of public speaking, you can:
- advance your career by showcasing both your professionalism and leadership skills
- make a tangible and memorable impact on your audience
- market yourself and/or your business effectively and boost your sales
- increase your reach and influence
- boost your confidence, feeling empowered when sharing insights with others
- create valuable social and professional connections.
So, what does a public speaking coach do?
A public speaking coach educates and guides you on speaking with power, poise, presence, and purpose so that you can face the stage confidently and make a difference when you do so.
But what does a public speaking coaching session look and feel like?
Essentially, we help you create and develop both your vocal and visual brand as well as your key message and overall stage presence.
Most importantly, we teach you how to use your public speaking and communication skills as a leader to effectively transform others while earning buy-in and engagement.
Finding the right public speaking coach for you
Let’s be honest: you can’t expect those results with everyone, and you do have to be willing to invest both time and money. A volunteer-led public speaking group may seem like a low cost option, but in reality you are not going to fast track or get to the level that is required for a leader.
Since there are many self-proclaimed coaches out there, be sure you invest your hard-earned money wisely.
Now that you know what public speaking coaches do, when you are looking for the right fit for you, find out how they’ve been offering their services:
- Are they qualified? Or are they simply calling themselves a coach? Look for recognised, ideally global credentials, accreditations, and certifications on their websites and marketing materials
- Who have they helped? Social proof and testimonials from previous clients are key. After all, anyone can write nice words about themselves. It’s when you read what someone who used to be in your same position has to say that you’ll actually know what to expect.
- Are they practising what they preach? Just like I doubt you would trust a chef trainer who doesn’t do any cooking, best not pick a public speaking coach who is never spotted behind a mic
