How to be a great speaker: Lesson From Bill Clinton

Regardless of your political leanings, Bill Clinton is known the world over as a great communicator. One of the many skills he uses to influence and persuade audiences is to end each sentence looking at ONE person to give him or her the sense he’s speaking to him or her ONLY.

Try it the next time you present to a small group. If you can, start and end with the same person. If you can’t do that,  consciously make the effort to END each sentence with someone in the audience.

Watch for the signs of enhanced rapport and let me know how it works out for you.

As I have said many times over, each 1 percent improvement makes a difference. Over time, these strategies will become second nature to you, as they have for Bill Clinton and other great orators.

If you want to learn to become a better public speaker, look into our 2-day Unleash The Speaker Within event that we stage annually or one of our 1-day Superstar Speaker Series events Super Star Speaking Skills, Persuasive Presentation Principles or TurboCharging PowerPoint.
