7 Proven Ways of Boosting Confidence Before a Public Speech

 

 

If you need to give a speech soon, you will face many symptoms of anxiety and stress. This is, even more, the case, if you need to present in front of your boss for example, or it is some other major event going on. This is normal and even the most expert public speakers admit that there is some level of nervousness before a speech. 

And the goal should always be not to fight the adrenaline surge, but to instead leverage it. So the next time you step out to speak in front of others, you will do well to utilise some strategies to prepare just before the speech. Here are a few working tips in that regard: 

  • Do a positive pep talk to yourself – it is always important to claim some success before you begin your presentation. This is a trick that many experts in sports psychology employ and it works well. Positive self-talk before any performance boosts confidence and leads to a higher win rate. So, in the minutes leading to your speech, make sure to give yourself a few compliments and self-affirmations. 

  • Power posing – if you get some alone time, make sure to also practice power posing. Assume an expansive and open stance in front of a mirror. This will give your mind a powerful confidence boost, which you can then use to enhance your performance minutes before it begins. 

  • Light exercise – a light stretch is a great way to relax your body if you feel any tension in it. Knee-bends or a brisk walk also work to supply your brain with oxygen and make you less of a stress knot. 

  • Take a few very deep breaths – anxiety has a way of tightening your muscles and making it difficult to breathe. That is why you can take some time to take a few deep breaths. Try to maximise the amount of oxygen flowing into your body and take the breaths with your diaphragm. This is a natural relaxation process, which can immediately calm you down and ease your nerves. 

  • Forget about pretending you are not nervous – even experts in public speaking are nervous. It is what they do with nervousness that counts. Instead of trying to control this state, they embrace it and turn it into an eagerness to perform. If you try to suppress your anxiety, you will only make it stronger. 

  • Focus on giving to others – try to remember the last time you gave a birthday present to someone. Were you nervous? Most likely not. Perhaps you felt a pinch of anticipation or excitement but never felt nervous about it. You can use this in your public speeches as well. Think of your performance as a gift to your audience, like a package of useful information that you willingly give to them. This is a mental attitude that empowers you and makes you perform better. 

  • Always practice the first minute of your speech in your head – it doesn’t matter how you plan on opening your speech – a personal story, an interesting quote, or a curious statistic – always make sure to memorise these first sentences in your head. When you are 100% how you will begin, you will feel much more confident and transition from feeling nervous into feeling more comfortable once you go past these initial minutes of the speech. Besides, you will create a very positive first impression this way. 

Remember to utilise these simple but effective strategies the next time you approach public speaking. You will be surprised by how powerful they are.

Automatic Speech Recognition Market Driven By Increasing Application Scope In Technology Domain Till 2025

Global automatic speech recognition market is expected to observe a high growth on account of increase in advanced electronic devices usage in the future. One of the major drivers observed in the market is the increasing voice passwords use by consumers. Text passwords are difficult to remember and easy to crack. Moreover, text passwords offer security threats. Therefore, organizations are focusing on adopting biometric passwords in the form of voice which are easy to remember as well as operate by population. Over the past decades, the field of automatic speech recognition was mostly a research topic. As early as 1932, researchers at Bell labs investigated the science of speech recognition.

 

With increase in the amount of fraud, organizations realized a need for a robust system which could serve the purpose for fraud management. In this system, a person’s voice is treated as a password for identification and authentication. The main objective of using automatic speech recognition application is to fasten the security system with high accuracy. Such an application eradicates the need of a keyboard. Moreover, these applications have contributed to increase in accuracy, response time and efficiency which in turn is expected to drive its demand over the forecast period. Security systems based on voice are efficient in crowd control.

The need for entering correct passwords with keyboard for access results in time delays and long queues. Therefore, automatic voice based security systems are expected to find major applications where crowd control is required. Lack of supporting I.T infrastructure is hampering overall system growth as establishment of automatic speech recognition systems requires highly efficient I.T systems and maintenance. Mindset change is another factor which is expected to restrain global industry growth in the future.

 

Some organizations are expected to hesitate in implementing new technologies and stick with their old systems. Voice recognition consists of front end and back end techniques. Front end techniques do face a challenge of accuracy and time delay. Therefore, back end recognition technique is vastly used owing to its high precision and speed benefits. These applications require a high amount of accuracy and should be able to handle disturbances or errors generated by noise. These systems also require high voice sensitivity detecting low pitch sounds as well.

 

The automatic speech recognition market is expected to contribute to the growth of speech analytics as well. Speech analytics, popularly known as audio mining is used to make meaningful inferences from the words captured. Study of voice based important business related materials are expected to give rise to better decision making related to strategy and operational issues


Global market is segmented on the basis of application areas. These application segments include fraud management, durable electronic goods, military services, healthcare and education. The technology finds its use in banking sectors, military, medical devices and cellular services.

 

Banks are developing systems which allow transactions enabled through voice based security authentication. Substantial research is being done to implement in the field of military to implement voice recognition systems in high field aircrafts and helicopters. Speech recognition is also used for education purpose by people with disabilities. Other implementation includes home appliances, video games, interactive voice response and robotics. North America followed by Europe accounted for high demand for speech enabled applications. Such facilities require use of voice recognition technology thereby these regions formed a larger share in the global speech recognition market.

 

Federal government has adopted Electronic Health Records and is expected to increase regional market growth over the forecast period. Asia Pacific region and Middle East region are expected to observe significant growth on account of the presence of developing economies including China, India, Japan and UAE. Africa and South America are expected to observe slow growth on account of lack of technology and language barriers. Major vendors dominating the global market are Agnito, Apple, Auraya Systems, Aurix, Cisco, Google, IBM, LumenVox LLC, Microsoft Corp, MModal Inc, Nuance Communication, Raytheon BBN, Validsoft Ltd, Voice Biometrics Group, Voice Trust AG and Voxeo.

 

Nuance Communications, headquartered in Burlington, Massachusetts, USA recently announced its dragon drive connected car platform. This platform gives the automakers privilege to generate voice enables apps and services. These apps can be used to connect with smart devices and systems from behind the wheel. More applications of such kind are expected to come up with development in technology especially in the field of neural network and fuzzy logic. Primarily banks are the major customers of these applications. Among them are ANZ in Asia Pacific, BBVA in Spain, US bank in USA.

These banking institutions believe that voice biometrics provide a better mobile banking experience in terms of safety, accuracy and speed. The market is observing an increasing demand for speech based biometrics for identification purpose. This growth is mainly on account of growing amount of fraud. The vendors must concentrate on cost effective and easy to use automatic speech based applications that cater the need of fraud management.

The Event was organized by the Maltese NGO Animal Liberation Malta.  

ALM's mission is to raise awareness and take action against all forms of animal abuse. 

 

 

 

Activists Unite in Conscious Living!

An activist is one who uses vigorous campaigning to bring about political or social change.

Environmental or Eco activism is versatile:

  • the protection of nature through conservation or preservation
  • the protection of the human environment (that is more and more polluted reducing our quality of life)
  • the protection of animals, trees, oceans.

At the event, Nataša told the participants in her speech: "Activists Unite!" "What a gathering of young illuminated hearts! All united in their love for animals..."

The full 6min  can be viewed here:

"Our team, responsible for street activism, worked ispeachndependently on this project in collaboration with the International NGO, Our Planet. Theirs too, to make this happen. It was a touching ceremony commemorating the billions of animals that die each year at human hands. Despite the adversities and restrictions, the organising team managed to pull this off, bringing together a small number of people dedicated to the cause, paying tribute to animals and joining more than 70 cities worldwide on the same day. Several touching speeches and live cello animated the ceremony, including reading the Declaration of Animal Rights in English & Maltese and concluding the ceremony by inviting participants to sign the declaration. Many heartwarming dedications and words of solidarity towards animals were documented on paper. We then transitioned to the celebration part, coming together to finish the day off with positivity and hope, being grateful for the fact that more & more people are making the connection and becoming conscious of Animal Rights. During the ceremony and celebration, social distancing was observed and the participants adhered to the Covid-19 restrictions. This is the beginning of a new era for Animal Rights in Malta, and we have a lot of work to do to bring about Animal Liberation. Hopefully, next year’s NARD will be bigger, better and more impactful. A big thank you goes to everyone who attended." The Organiser.
