Does what you wear matter on stage? What about sounding confident in your message? I cover this and more in this episode, and you're not going to want to miss this! 

“Stage presence is a combination of how you use your voice, facial expressions and body language to connect & engage with your audience.” – Mary R Snyder.

Highlights from our conversation include: 

  • What is stage presence, and who comes to mind? (2:27)
  • What not to wear (3:48)
  • Stepping onto the stage (5:20)
  • Move with purpose (7:29)
  • Focus on your audience (9:48)
  • Supporting items, like slideshows (11:15)
  • The unexpected occurrence (14:18)

You have a message to share — one God has given you. Practicing capturing and holding your audience is key to connecting with the audience and sharing your message. Have you been able to perfect your stage presence? Are you confident in being on stage? I'd love it if y'all came to join the conversation in the Facebook group-Take the Stage Speakers and share with us! Or feel free to ask questions. Not on Facebook? No worries, you can always find me on Instagram or text me! I would love for you to share with me.
