The Zen insight into public speaking is that it’s not about you, the speaker, it’s about the message and the audience getting that message. And that’s never more true than during a commencement ceremony.

Great points in Nick Morgan's new post about what speakers might do right before hitting the stage (for more in depth descriptions, click on the link):

1.Talk to Yourself.
Self-talk is sometimes maligned as too woo-woo, but it is effective. And the bad news is that Amy Cuddy’s power poses have been shown not to be effective in follow up research. So it isn’t enough just to stand tall. You also need to think tall, and that’s where self-talk comes in. Find a positive mantra and repeat it. It will keep the negative thoughts away, and that will increase your confidence at the very least. 

2.Poll the People Outside the Hall.

3.Create a Positive Vibe.

4.Forgive someone you don’t like or something bad that happens.

5.Let Go of your Ego.

6.Interact with the Audience.

7.Smile.

Finally, smile. Smiling shifts your vocal chords around, open up your vocal production, and creates a warmer sound. And, it can even make you feel a little bit better. So plaster a big grin on your face and go get ‘em!

I've started cataloging on video, the stories that make up the core of who I am. Everyone has great personal stories to share, that have profoundly affected your life. What's a story that's changed you, that you can use in your next keynote?

Professional Keynote Speakers-friends: How do you access your deep intuitive voice? I've learned that a habit of writing no matter how you're feeling can really help. Often I've started writing "not feeling inspired" and then I find something that surprises me and works. Along that line, I wrote of a simple process for more success and happiness in 2 steps. See my new blog article "Find Out How You’re 2 Simple Steps Away from More Success and Happiness." Please share it.
