Kathie Lee & Hoda: Public Speaking Expert Bill Hoogterp
Whether it’s a job interview, a date or a public speaking event, making a good impression is always important. That’s why Kathie Lee & Hoda welcomed Bill Hoogterp, executive coach and founder of public speaking program Own the Room. Bill shared his expert tips on learning how to speak so that everyone takes notice.
Bill Hoogterp: Public Speaking Tips
Public speaking is a common phobia, but it shouldn’t be; according to Bill, “nervousness is just trapped energy.” He believes that the most important first step in conquering a speaking fear is to “get over yourself,” and realize that it’s more about the audience than about you.Bill believes in rehearsing, but not being too rehearsed. Bullet points are better because they help you keep pace without giving the impression of someone reading a script. Stories and humor are always helpful in connecting with an audience, but don’t make too many jokes right off the bat – let them get to know you first.
If you find yourself “blowing it,” revert with humor, sort of like Jennifer Lawrence did when she tripped at the Oscars. Take a deep breath, and continue when you’re ready. “People are rooting for you to do well,” Bill explained. So relax, be yourself, and don’t take public speaking so seriously!
