Confidence On Camera – Confidence Tip No.2
I am using my 11 years of experience working with business people in media, editing and video production to give other business-minded people top tips on how to look professional, convincing and super confident when delivering talks to their cameras. Gaining more confidence is the first step to doing more and winning more online.
“This will set you up for a more relaxed and confident talk…”
“Creating an icebreaker is a great way to grab attention and focus your audience …”
Ideas for Icebreakers
Regardless of what you are planning to talk about, you can still begin on a light note and say or do something that will relax you and make you appear more confident.
You could also tell a joke, talk about something funny that has happened to you recently or even humorously talk about the weather. Any of these will help you to smile, even if it is just an internal smile. Even a passing reference to current events delivered amusingly can help ease your nerves, establish rapport with your audience, and break the ice.
Controlling your nerves and anxiety before and during your talk, is the first step to mastering your confidence on camera.
