In this week’s podcast, I share six tips for better public speaking.

This was a special live online session I did for students from the Faculty of Law and International Relations at Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin. I say special because this faculty was dear to my late husband who served there as a lecturer for ten years.

He passed away in March 2021 from a heart attack, so it has been a while since I got in touch with his former students and colleagues. 

Here is what I talked about: 

  1. How to look for great content
  2. Why it’s important to know your audience
  3. How to structure your message
  4. Five ways to not be boring 
  5. Why purposeful body language is important
  6. Ways to practise effectively

You can also listen to this session on SpotifyApple Podcasts or Google Podcasts.

I had great fun interacting with the students. You will also hear from the moderator, Syahira Jamaludin, as she and I interacted on the points. 

Some of the books I mention in this episode include Stephen Covey’s Principle-Centred Leadership, JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Don’t Be Sad by Aaidh ibn Abdullah al-Qarni, The Productive Muslim by Mohammed Faris and How to Talk to Anyone by Leil Lowndes.

These are actual books that got me through some challenging times. 

I invite you to listen to this session and tell us if you found the tips helpful in your journey to becoming a better communicator!
