As one of the foremost experts of his field, Dr. Gregory Brammer often finds himself in situations where he has to speak in front of large audiences. Whether it is a meeting where he acts as keynote speaker or he is required to make a long speech at a conference, he tries to remain as calm as possible. Being prepared takes some of that immense pressure off.
When people see someone looking comfortable in front of the microphone, they often assume that the person in question is not nervous. In reality almost everyone feels the pressure in similar situations. Some people can handle these emotions much better, partly because of the different preparation process.
Memorizing Content Doesn’t always Work
Many people make the mistake of memorizing content, which is not necessarily the best method. When trying to give a perfect speech, one can rarely do it by citing a material word-for-word. Unless someone has vast experience as a speaker or is an actor or actress, body language and even tone will likely come off as theatrical when reciting a memorized speech. Try to memorize concepts instead, and that way the brain will organically build the appropriate speech for it. When that happens, the speech will feel more like a conversation, instead of being a pre-learned homework, and the speaker will be able to convey it in a much more natural way.
As someone who has given several dozen of speeches in front of his esteemed colleagues, Dr. Gregory Brammer has developed a surefire system built on concept memorization.
