The most dynamic and effective speakers are made (trained) not born that way. It may appear that your favorite speaker appears cool and calm and collected while making a dynamic and compelling presentation. And sometimes we mistakenly think that person was just born with the gift.
In actuality, it begins with desire & motivation and then a diligence and dedication to learning the ropes and most important of all, practicing what you learn!
One of the most sacred tenets of becoming a public speaker is stage time! stage time! stage time! which basically means every chance you have to practice your presentation in front of an audience, make sure you do that. Every time you practice, even alone, make sure you video your practice session for feedback viewing later.
Public Speaking is like any other learned skill you want to develop and then commit to following through about. It takes time, desire, drive and support from family, friends and colleagues. For one of the best organizations to assist you in this kind of development, consider Toastmasters International, a worldwide network of like-minded people that offers local membership everywhere.
