If we wanted to drone on, we’d buy one and fly it. Don’t be a drone.

As speakers, we do not want to come across as emotionless. Not showing emotion or feeling when speaking limits your ability to be authentic.

My job as a speaker coach is to help you put that emotion and feeling into your voice. A speech or presentation that is delivered with real, raw emotion is amazing. All of the world great speakers do it and when you see and hear it you are really moved. It’s powerful stuff.

There is so much strength and power in authenticity and just as much in displaying vulnerability.

We have to remember though that as speakers being authentic and showing vulnerability must always be done with a sense of control. There is no point losing your temper or sobbing uncontrollably because this only does one thing. It stops your message. Without control, your message won’t get through and you certainly won’t be able to use your voice or your performance to its full effect.

Feelings and emotion when speaking must always come with control. The speaker/actor/performer is always in control.
