So, if you’re looking for some public speaking motivation, take a look at this list of ways the public speaking can help you:
1. Builds Your Confidence
Although you may be nervous before giving your first speech, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment (along with a sense of relief) when it is done. If the speech went well, you may even receive positive feedback from your peers and your audience–further bolstering your confidence.
If you practice your public speaking skills and continue to give speeches, your oral communication skills will improve. As your skills improve, you’ll begin to feel more comfortable (and confident) in your ability to speak well.
2. Improves Your Research Skills
To make a successful public presentation, you need to research your topic thoroughly. You’ll learn where to find the information you need for each presentation and how to tell whether the information is credible and relevant.
Good research skills will serve you well in a number of professional and personal tasks, including:
- Business report writing
- Academic studies
- Job hunting
- And more
In addition, having more and better information can help you make better decisions.
3. Strengthens Your Deductive Skills

Deductive reasoning is another important skill that’s improved by the speech writing process. Like many of the other skills strengthened by studying public speaking, deductive reasoning is useful in everyday life.
