“Did you know that you are the catalyst of change the world needs? Yes, you heard it right. You are the change that you want to see in this world.”
This was my opener when I joined our organization’s public speaking contest and guess what? I won the 1st runner-up place. I am not a competing public speaker, but I have done several public speeches and training to date.
Joining this competition made me realized that it is not an easy feat to speak in public. That five (5) minute speech was written, rehearsed, and prepared for about five (5) days. Really, preparation is the key. Now with that realization, I want to share with you my lessons learned about how to be #significantlybetter in the art of public speaking.
Hope these lessons learned can help you start your journey of becoming a public speaker not just for the sake of joining competitions but using your voice to influence people to create impact and positive change to the world.
Let’s continue to be #significantlybetter, together.
