When you’re nervous about public speaking.

In this episode, Frankie Tortora and Steve Folland have a chat in response to a question from wedding florist Esme Ford of The Honey Seeker.

“Hi Frankie & Steve!

I am giving a 10 minute talk next week and I need your help.

Public speaking is something I never do, so I had a little practice and filmed myself doing my talk and my voice is soooooo wishy washy. I hate it when I ‘ummm’ a lot so try to actively pause instead, but then the flow of the talk is all wrong?

I just feel like my voice has no authority!

How do you both make your voice sound so clear and confident? Have you always been good at speaking or have you just improved with time?

Thanks! Esme”

Take note dear listener! We might swear a bit. This one’s for the parents. To be enjoyed at your desk or once the kiddos are in bed.

What would your advice be?
