Being an introvert when I was at school (I’m best described as an ambivert today), you can always be certain that I wasn’t one of those students who would proactively ask and answer the teachers in class. Of course, the bigger things like me presenting in front of class are more unlikely to happen.
I had always felt like I was the most inactive student in class until I got into college, where apparently students from other schools were even more inactive than me, and I became one of the most active students then. One thing that I’ve been facing in many organizations since my college time is sharing in events. The skill of sharing is one of the life survival skills in any organization. I’m not an expert myself, but there are certain things that you must master to be a good sharer/speaker:
- Be confident. You’re the one who understands the matter best out of all the people in the room.
- Be prepared. Prepare the meeting agenda, know what points are to be presented and to which depth.
- Know your audience and deliver the contents with their capabilities/expertise.
- Speak at the correct speed. That is, not too fast nor too slow.
Anyone want to add some points?
