One of the hardest and most challenging jobs in the world is speaking in front of a live audience. This is the reason famous people are hired as motivational speakers for events in Auckland or anywhere else in NZ for that matter. After all, you can’t be so sure that people will listen or even take home something valuable from what they’ve listened. Why is this job so hard to do? Let’s find out.
Speaking in Public
Statistically, the thing that most people fear is speaking in front of an audience. The larger the audience or the bigger the event, more pressure is felt by the speaker. This pressure is not something that’s easily handled.
Public speaking is a big task, and not many people can handle the pressure. It’s hard for a person to see themselves speaking in a forum or delivering a speech. They envision themselves failing at even reading the speech or of properly delivering the speech.
Another problem or hurdle is that they’re not good at delivering a message. They may have the mastery about the topic, but they do not know how to convey that in words, which can be understood by an audience. This fear of not being able to perform haunts people.
Instead of being able to show that they know what they’re doing, they end up frozen on the spot and fearing what other people think of them as they stand on the podium. People don’t think much of the speaker, but they have expectations of the way they talk or what discussion is going to happen. They attend motivational affairs and awarding events to listen and learn from famous speakers after all.
Professional motivational speakers are brought in during events like these because they know how to talk in public, and they know how to inspire an audience. They know that these people, who are eager to listen to them, know how to do the technical matters. They don’t need to tell people what they already know. Instead, they speak of their own experiences and how they have overcome them and succeeded.
