Public Speaking Training:  

Learn Public Speaking Material Easily
Using Bits

In my public speaking training, you will learn about the use of bits in your presentation. A bit means that you take a chunk of your presentation material and relate it to a visual or outline so it makes it easy for you to memorize. Each point then flows along naturally from one to the other so you can deliver the information without looking at  your notes. Public speakers use this bits in order to deliver long presentations to the audience without the using notes.

My public speaking training teaches you that to have good speaking skills means you must practice and prepare before your presentation.

Before I learned about bits, I thought I would never make it as a good public speaker because I couldn't memorize long speeches. I discovered that most presenters can't memorize long talks either. They have a mental or written outline consisting of key words or visuals that trigger the individual bit in their minds.

Not being dependent on your notes has several advantages. When you stand before a group and speak without using notes your credibility automatically rises with the audience. They will think, 'Wow! This person really knows their stuff.' You look more professional and knowledgeable with what you are saying.

This way you won't be tied to a podium or forced to hold your notes so that you can get physically closer to the audience and actually enter the audience on occasion. The closer you are to them to interact, the better you will connect with them.

When you leave the script and notes at home you can speak naturally to the audience rather than reading to them. It is very boring to hear someone talk as if they are reading it word for word. You will also be more confident because you no longer have to worry about your notes getting lost, or being blown away by the wind when outdoors.

Using bits has another big advantage that involves time. We are all very busy people. It's hard to find a spare hour or day to practice your presentation for an upcoming program. Bits can be practiced when you have a spare few minutes, a bit of time here and there.

You will be more likely to practice your material (and we all need practice) if you can practice a three or five-minute bit rather than the entire presentation.

Remember the old slogan for the candy bar, "Bit of Honey"? It was, "A bit of honey goes a long, long way."

Remember from your public speaking training you should learn your craft and your speech, bit by bit, it will go a long way on your road to success.
