4 Ways Public Speaking Can Help Your Business Grow

Most of us have had that nightmare where we’re in front a huge crowd of people just about to give a speech, and suddenly forget what we’re supposed to say. It’s almost as bad as the nightmare where you forget to put on your pants before going to work.
If you’re afraid of speaking in front of a crowd, you’re not alone. According to a Bruskin/Goldring Report, more Americans are actually afraid of public speaking than they are of death!
But what if you had a more motivating fact
or, a positive one that would make public speaking tolerable, or maybe even enjoyable? A factor that would far outweigh the fear? Would you consider it then?
You may not even realize that you’re already an expert. Think about how often friends, family and associates seek your advice on matters that you deal with every day, and you probably have an answer right off the top of your head. Could you do that if you weren’t an expert?
You have more than enough knowledge and experience to educate people outside of your industry. You can use that to position yourself as the go-to guy (or gal) which then leads to both media and potential customers seeking you out instead of the other way around.
