What Are the Life-Changing Benefits of Public Speaking?

Here’s a hypothetical deductive reasoning example for a small business:

To meet our business expenses, we must earn $4000 USD a month.
Last month we earned $4500 USD.
Therefore, last month we met our business expenses.

As you can see, good deductive reasoning skills can be important if you’re running a business. That example was over-simplified for the purpose of illustration, but you can probably think of more specific areas where deductive reasoning will help in your business or life.

4. Markets Your Business

If you own a business, you can use public speaking to market your business. Even if you don’t own a business, public speaking can make you more marketable as a business professional. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Focus your speech topics around subjects that are of interest to your potential customers or industry.
  2. Research your speeches carefully, to make sure that everything is correct.
  3. When writing your speech, pay special attention to information that may interest potential customers or employers.
  4. Practice your speaking skills so that your delivery is smooth.
  5. Make sure that the audience who hears your speech includes at least some possible clients or employers.
  6. If possible, share your speech through social media.

Over time, as you continue to give speeches on a particular subject, you’ll start to become recognized as an expert on that topic–which increases your marketability. Even a single well-done speech on a site like TED Talks, YouTube, or SlideShare can grow your professional reputation.

5. Strengthens Your Oral Communication Skills

Oral communication is the ability to communicate verbally. Public speaking is a form of oral communication.

The more that you practice giving speeches, the better you’ll become at communicating orally. Those improved oral communication skills not only apply to any future speeches you may give, they can also carry over into everyday conversation.


6. Improves Your Chances of Getting Hired

Another benefit of public speaking is that it can increase your chance of getting hired. Communication skills are in demand by employers. Communication skills include both written communication skills and oral communication skills.

A 2017 study from talent acquisition software provider, iCIMS, found that over a third of all employers list oral communication as one of the skills they value most in a job candidate.

What better way to improve your communication skills than by writing and giving speeches?

7. Gives You a Chance to Meet Others With Similar Interests

Another of the advantages of public speaking is that you’ll get to meet other people. Public speaking can be a great way to network and meet others in your industry or who have similar interests.

Plus, if you’re the one who’s giving the speech, event participants will be more likely to interact with you than if you’re just attending. And when the event is over, they’ll also be more likely to remember you as one of the speakers.

8. Helps You Overcome Your Fear of Public Speaking

As I mentioned earlier, fear of public speaking is very common. In Great Britain, for example, a study found that fear of public speaking ranked third on a list of common fears–right after heights and snakes!

If you rarely give a speech or presentation, you’re more likely to be afraid of public speaking. However, as you learn more about public speaking and practice your speaking skills, your fear is likely to decrease. You’ll be more comfortable giving speeches. And your audience will sense that you’re more comfortable and perceive your speech more favorably–likely giving you positive feedback, which will further reduce your fear of public speaking.
