On February 15, 2013, Laugh Staff responds to an article published by Life Hacker regarding advice on public speaking.
In the Life Hacker article Peter Sims offers his advice on public speaking. Sims states that public speaking does not come naturally for anyone and it must be practiced and improved. “I have had to learn through many difficult and painful experiences and a great deal of feedback how to basically just be myself on stage,” he explains.
Sims recalls his first paid public speech in which he did poorly. Following the speech, he received an email which discussed his public speaking flaws, including his lack of experience and energy on stage. Sims explains that while it was a difficult experience for him, he was able to learn from it and now he speaks publically on a weekly basis.
When going through the creative process, Sims said that people need to make the leap from “suck to non-suck.” Sims credits good public speaking skills to being passionate about your subject, knowing your material, and understanding your audience.
“Peter Sims’ advice could be extremely beneficial for someone who is about to give a best man speech,” said Josh Womack, a representative for Laugh Staff. “The tips Sims provides could be very useful during a wedding speech; you’ll need to be passionate, know your material, and know your audience.”
Womack adds that unfortunately there are no second chances when it comes to best man speeches. For this reason, it’s all the more important to prepare yourself accordingly and perhaps seek feedback from public speaking and speech writing experts.
