9 Habits of Highly Effective Speakers

016_dressI saw this article today from Inc. it has some great insights on speaking. As someone who does a lot of public speaking, I am always trying to learn and improve my skills. I am always looking for tips and tricks. I think one really important aspect is that the topic you are going to present on or speak about needs to be something you have a lot of knowledge of. You must study, research and understand the content. This will bring you the confidence you need to stand in front of an audience and talk about the subject. This is the foundation. Now this will not necessarily make you a good speaker or presenter but it is where you should start. Once you have the content down then you are ready to start honing you presentation and speaking skills. Below are some good resources to get you started.

Here is the article that inspired this post it is worth checking out. 9 Habits of Highly Effective Speakers | Inc.com.

Below is a good slide presentation from 7 Lessons From the World’s Most Captivating Presenters

Here is another good one from Inc 10 Phrases Great Speakers Never Say

Another way to improve is to watch/listen to others and learn from them. You should troll Youtube and Ted for more inspirational talks. Also here is a good list of The Top 100 Speeches of the 20th Century

mLearning: Making Learning Mobile

I am looking forward to speaking at this Online Forum on December 6th & 7th hosted by the eLearning Guild. It is a topic that I really enjoy talking about and that is technology based learning. In this case its mobile technology. Mobile technology offers new ways to reach our learners. I have been involved in many conversations with thought leaders on subject of how mobile is transforming how we reach the learner. Mobile opens up possibilities that we have never had before. It is up to us to decide how we are going to embrace these opportunities and leverage them to create better learning.

Come join in the discussions!
