…..adding with a little wink knowing that nothing worth truly embracing
is summed up in only FIVE rules.
What does the word authenticity mean and how does one become more authentic?
Is it simply a state of mind or can we be taught how to be authentic?
The answer is, as stated by Nick Bolton, there is NO magic trick or formula to being authentic – it isn’t a case of teaching someone to be authentic.
Being YOU is different to each and every one of us, and that is something we have to find out for ourselves as we embark on our public speaking journey. Nick was as authentic as they come. With his beautiful combination of charm, wit and knowledge of coaching, he managed to share with us 5 key points of how to BE authentic when presenting. As he stressed, this will be completely different for each of us, in regards to our style, personality etc so use these 5 key points as a guide to help you (and remind you) to be more of YOU on stage!
Nothing is more cringe-worthy than when you hear someone telling a story of a childhood that isn’t theirs! Share your own story! We all have unique experiences that have shaped us into the adult we are today.
Remember part of being YOU is the ability to be vulnerable, and this means living and sharing the real YOU!
