One of the key ways to get an audience interested in your idea or topic is to show your passion for it.
When you stand up and speak with real passion, your audience will hear see and feel your passion, your passion will intrigue them, they will want to know why you’re so excited about this topic and they’ll feel that if you’re excited then maybe they should be too. Passion is the best way to connect with your audience
The opposite is also true. Think back to when you were in university or college, think of that one lecturer who always sounded bored when they gave their lectures. Were you interested in the class or were you just as bored as he was? If’s not just passion that we feed off . If the lecturer finds their subject boring then there’s nothing to keep us engaged so we stop listening which results in a whole group of people who don’t care and can’t wait for the class to end.
Have you got an got an idea that you’re passionate about but don’t know how to present it to an audience? Do you want to learn how to present with more passion?
Come along to one of our meetings and see how we can help you show your audience the passion you have for your topic.
We meet at 7.30pm on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays in the Lantern Centre on Synge St (off Camden St), see you there.
