Secrets to Keeping Audience Attention
You can measure the success of your speaking in lots of ways, but one surefire indicator of success is audience attention.
Fail to gain and keep audience attention and you fail to succeed.
This is Bronwyn Ritchie from Pivotal Public Speaking and I have to say I know that feeling of impending doom.
A group in the corner is chatting among themselves. The lady in the front row is asleep, even SNORING slightly. The man in the middle row is quietly chatting into his phone. To an inexperienced speaker it can feel like the whole presentation is slipping away.
You really do need to gain your audience’s attention right from the start and then keep it.
What will that attention give you? What could you do with that attention?
Your audience will listen. If they listen, they have a chance of understanding, and understanding, after all, is basic to your achieving your goals for the presentation.
Once you have that attention, you can connect. You can persuade, inform, educate, entertain. And you can have your call to action heard - and understood.
