CHAMPION STRATEGIES – PUBLIC SPEAKING WORKSHOP – January 18, 2021
Personal Benefits of Public Speaking
1. Boost Confidence
Public speaking repeatedly is a great boost of self confidence. Every time you speak, you gain a bit more confidence as you see your ideas and yourself were well-received by your audience.
2. Personal Satisfaction
Being able to speak in front of a crowd is a huge accomplishment. The first time can be very nerve-wracking, but coming out on the other end of the speech is a huge win! After the first time, you will keep getting better and better at public speaking and will get great personal satisfaction from this skill.
3. Critical Thinking
When preparing and conducting a speech, you also increase your critical thinking skills by working through problems, imagining positive and negative consequences, and finding solutions.
4. Improve Communication Skills
When you practice public speaking, you are practicing both verbal and nonverbal skills — and both will improve. The more you speak out, the better you get at communication. Public speakers are better overall communicators in all facets of life.
5. Learn to Argue
Presenting an argument in a formal setting will help you in informal settings as well. Public speaking helps you form better arguments, and you can increase your arguing skills even more through public speaking by engaging in Q&A with your audience.
6. Be a Better Listener
Attending conferences as a speaker means you will also listen to other speakers. As you listen to other speakers, you will have a greater appreciation and understanding of their material and craft, as a speaker yourself.

Public speaking is one of the most effective ways to get your message across. With public speaking, you can influence the world around you. If you see something that needs to change, use public speaking to change it!
- Make the difference:
Every public speaking opportunity you come across is a time to spread you influence for the greater good.
- Reach people fast:
Instead of waiting for your message to spread by word of mouth, social media, or print media, put it in front of a huge audience and you’ll instantly inspire many.
- Your message comes to life:
Written information is useful in some cases, but when you really want to make a difference in the world, you need to campaign for your cause and the best way to do so is to get it to come to life with public speaking.
