Have you sat in a presentation or seminar and wondered how you can quietly sneak out the back without being noticed?

I can’t count the amount of times I’ve listened to speakers who simply don’t know how to build a connection with their audience.  Even though they might know their stuff, they are plain boring.

Knowing how to deliver a message that is memorable for the right reasons is about building rapport with your audience.

When presenting you can build rapport…

  • With your personality and presence
  • By creating a level of commonality and,
  • Your method of delivery

Picture this.  There is a group for eighteen year olds in the street.  Dance music is blaring, they are taking turns executing complex dance moves, they are dressed the same, caps on sideways, black tee-shirts with branded fronts and jeans that are sitting on their hips revealing more of their underwear than is necessary.  These teenagers are in rapport with each other, they like each other because they are like each other.  If a new player is to join their group, he or she will have to meet the same dress code, speak the same language before they will be accepted and trusted.

I’m not saying you need to learn how to Moon Walk or Shmoney Dance to fit in, but you certainly need to understand what is important to a group you want to connect with if you want to build rapport and have them hear you.  This is the same for every one of your prospects.  Read More in my Book Good Girls Do Sell

One of the best methods to build rapport and capture the interest of your audience is to tell stories.  Also by using images that will interest and amuse in your presentations.  And…always, always, always make it meaningful for the audience.  If it isn’t you will lose them quickly.

Remember…

  1. Speak with conviction
  2. Look people in the eye
  3. Be authentic

“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we
desire not things we fear.” … Brian Tracy

 

Best wishes till next time.
