“All the great speakers were bad speakers at first” – Rolph Waldo Emerson

It is not a tough task to understand why the fear of dying is inferior to the dismay of public speaking. Public speaking removes our comfort level and forces us to step out.

It ranks on top of the list of phobias for most people. Many people are afraid of public speaking, and they got shivering and tended to speak in a low tone, which results in the loss of interests of people. Frankly speaking,

it is a natural process, and it happens when one intimidate much about how the others will judge them, and when one force himself to remain calm.



Public speaking is an art rather than just a skill. It is about how your speech will sound to your audience, irrespective of its content. It could be an unpleasant thing for you when you have to put your stand, and face judging faces with a hope of getting your message delivered compellingly. However, it may lead to sweating in your hands, dry out your mouth, shaking of your knees, and speed your speech reading pace.

Public Speaking tips
Power of Public Speaking



Reasons for Fear of Public Speaking

1. One reason to frighten with speaking in public could be your past experience. You might have delivered a speech or performed an act in front of public earlier, but it ended up badly. It could be the reason that you have lost confidence in yourself and always afraid of speaking out.

2. The other reason could be that you haven’t delivered a speech yet, and when you want to speak, the probabilistic circumstances make you take back your step. These circumstances are just the inner conflict in your mind, such as, how people will react to my speech, Will my speech sound good, What if everyone laughs at me, etc.

Well, this post is not to make you frightened but is to make you aware of your situation while delivering the speech and providing you with its remedies. We are providing you with solutions to develop your confidence while speaking in public.

Public Speaking Tips and Tricks

We are delighted to present the best of public speaking tips to overcome your fear and to get over the nervousness. These tips are given by experts to develop confidence while speaking in public.

1. Start to speak in small audience group

You should start with the small audience if you are new to the world of public speaking. Try to start with your close family and friends who could support and help you to lose your hesitation. Just remember one thing, no. of the audience does not matter once you have built confidence, and if you know your topic very well.

2. Get Yourself Organized

An organized thought and materials about your speech will help you to become much calmer and relaxed. You must take all of your required time to put your ideas all together in an orderly manner. You should take care of opening, body content, and a conclusion. The first part of your presentation should be eye-catchy, and the body content supports your topic, while end delivers a message. Getting yourself organized help you in reducing stress and speaking anxiety while make you focus on one thing at a time which results in a great speech.

3. Focus on Patterns of Speech

Every form of speech has a pattern, and if you are keen to become an excellent public speaker, you must get aware of it. Try to keep your speech sort and take a short pause while delivering to add anticipation. You can use some powerful words, and special speech tones to make it more exciting.


4. Practice In The Front of Mirror

Practicing your speech in front of a mirror will make you feel like you are talking to someone. You can judge your facial expressions, body gesture, movement while delivering in front of the mirror. It is the best technique till-date for the overall development of your public speaking skills.

5. Record and Listen

The one alternative for practicing in front of the mirror is to record your speech on either phone or a video camera. Recording your voice make you aware that how your statement sounds to the audience, and on what thing you need to improvise.

6. Practice……and More Practice.

No other thing can beat practice. Find any business organization, network or club, such as Toastmasters club, that provides you with an opportunity for practicing. Get prepare well and don’t forget to understand your topic completely. If possible, always choose a topic that you are already expert on, as the unfamiliar topic might increase your stress, and disrupt your speech.

7. Try Public Speaking Training Course.

Try a public speaking training course which is appropriate for your needs. Such a course will help to learn how to engage your audience. You can also find a great coach or mentor to assist you. Learning this art can improve your results in a boardroom, a sales presentation, and even help you in generating a business lead.

8. Practice To Deal With Nervousness

Practice a ton to hide your nervousness while moving towards a podium on stage, while delivering a speech. Sometimes one gets even more nervous to cover it. You need to understand that you can only control your nervousness, but can’t hide it.

  • Do not overthink the audience’s reaction. They are not able to see your nervousness.
  • Never show any dull or negative expressions, such as yawning, and when you see someone looking exhausting and bored in the audience, you need to ignore such a person and focus on to present your information.
  • Try deep breathing and think of a more relieved situation to comfort you.

9. Lubricate Your Throat.

Just like an engine needs proper lubrication to function correctly, your voice also needs to be lubricated to perform well. Making a speech in front of the audience requires high pitch voice, which dries your mouth. So, you must lubricate your throat with lukewarm water, or lemon-water solution. Don’t try sugary beverages, as it will drain your mouth which makes it harder to talk.



Always keep a thing in your mind that nobody is born a great speaker. It is the practice and hard work that makes them a perfect speaker. Even Warren Buffett has faced public speaking anxiety at first. But, he was not the person who lose hope and started giving training to investors twice of his age to improve his speaking skill.

Quotes on Public Speaking and Leadership

Public speaking is a crucial skill in the business world. Our body is geared for either fight or flight, and it is up to you what you want, to figure out a way to improve your speaking skill or to move away from the situation and blame yourself.

3. Take Mocks and Analyze your Strengths and Weakness.

Mock Tests are the best way to analyze your progress. To find your strong and weak areas in any section. It is advised to take mocks at the same time. As the CAT 2018 test slots so that you become familiar with timing and environment. It is very much mandatory to take at least two to three full-length mock tests every week. After going through the starting two steps of your preparation strategy, you have to plan to note down all the basic formulas from each chapter separately on a plain sheet of paper.




With 2.5 months of duration remaining after the first two steps, start with two mock tests every week for a period of 15 days. Try to find a better solution to the problem. In the next one month period, the preparation strategy should be to increase no. of mock tests to three or four every week to experiment with your overall strategy of writing the paper. During this period, focus on RCs with accuracy, in the given time interval.

HOW TO CLEAR CAT EXAM 2018 IN THE FIRST ATTEMPT?

CAT Exam 2018  To be very honest, there is no easy task to crack exam like CAT, and if you want to snap it in the first attempt, then you have to appear in this exam like you have appeared for it multiple times and it requires a lot of practice and dedication. CAT is a very fickle exam, and there isn’t any sure shot method which promises you to clear this as the circumstances and situation vary from person to person, and one should start their preparation as per their strength and weakness.

Today we will discuss the strategy one needs to adapt if he/she is willing to kill the monster CAT exam in the first fist of the fight. But before moving forward, let me make you introduce to this monster.



This exam consists mainly of three sections:

  1. Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension

  • Total No. of Questions = 34
  • Total Marks= 102
  • Duration = 60 Minutes

 

  1. Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning

  • Total No. of Questions = 32
  • Total Marks = 96
  • Duration = 60 Minutes
  1. Quantitative Ability

  • Total No. of Questions = 34
  • Total Marks = 102
  • Duration = 60 Minutes



So, overall there are 100 questions in CAT exam 2018 which you have to complete in 180 minutes (3 hours) where you will get an addition of three marks (+3) for each correct MCQ and Non-MCQ questions, and deduction of one marks for each incorrect MCQ questions (-1). However, there will be no any deduction of marks for an incorrect Non-MCQ question.

CAT Exam 2018 will be conducted by last of November or by the starting of December, which means you have got only four months in your hand for preparation. So today, we are sharing some of the strategies suggested by best of teachers and students to guide you to success.

Experts believe that no book is enough to clear this exam and you need to solve as many questions as possible. For a short-term preparation, you have to grasp every detail, and you need to be motivated throughout.



Short-Term Preparation Strategy

  • One set of material for practice ( TIME material is best for quants and DI and for LR, you can go for CL material and IMS for the verbal section)
  • Take at least two standard mocks to analyse your progress (Test Funda, IMS or Career Launcher)
  • Join a course for doubt clarification and concept building (iquanta is best for both students and working professionals).

Long-Term Preparation Strategy

The long-term strategy is complete year planning to crack CAT Exam 2018, and it needs impeccable dedication of at least two to three hours a day. If you start your preparation by March, then you can efficiently cover all of your concepts by the time of the exam. In the first three month planning from March to May, dedicate your time to learn basics of every topic and to understand what kind of questions will be coming in an exam and try to take as much topic tests as possible. The month of June to August is the time when you moved back to the harder questions of the subject and analyse your progress through a sectional test. By the end of August, you should try a minimum of two full-length mock tests. From September to November, invest your time in practicing previous year questions, focus more on reading and practicing RC. September is the best month when you have learned all the concepts, so you need to spend a lot of time in taking and analysing your mock tests.

  1. QUANTITATIVE APTITUDE

Quantitative Aptitude is one of the most frightening sections for the CAT Exam 2018 aspirants. However, from the past few years, its level has been reduced. So, it is best preferred to prepare strategically and focus more on fundamental questions. To practice for the quant section, you need to follow any standard book, such as Quantum Cat by Sarvesh, apart from the practice material of any coaching institute.

Topics to focus on QA:

  • Number System
  • Arithmetic
  • Algebra
  • Geometry
  • Permutation and Combination
  • Probability
  • Miscellaneous topics, such as Set theory, Trigonometry, and Logarithm.



  1. DATA INTERPRETATION AND LOGICAL REASONING

Mock tests and past notes combined are very best options to prepare for DILR. This section tests the student’s ability to test the candidate’s ability to make decisions in less time with limited inputs. It needs practice and speed to take decisions within the given time limits. Remember one thing while you are practicing for DILR questions, don’t look back to the solution immediately, even you are unsure, try to give your best while solving puzzles…

Topic to cover for Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning section:

  • Set theory (most crucial part in DILR)
  • Ratio Proportion
  • Missing data tables
  • Questions based on average age concepts
  • Time and Work

You can do this by reading a daily editorial from “The Hindu” paper, practicing daily, and practicing past year paper. Reading Comprehension is the most scoring topic in this section, and you need to practice at least two RCs every day if you are aiming big. Besides RCs, vocabulary is also one of the major topics and you can prepare it by practicing Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis.




Topics to cover for verbal ability section:

  • Grammar Questions
  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Vocabulary
