Podcast Highlights

Length: 16 minutes, 6 seconds

Higgins believes that everyone is a public speaker, to some degree. “They don’t believe it, they don’t realize it, and I mean, Shakespeare said all the world is a stage and he’s absolutely right. You can’t get through a day without public speaking, it’s just that nobody ever thinks about the fact that they are standing in public talking.”

Higgins believes that passion for your topic is important. “I think if as an audience member if you are watching someone who is – as good of a topic as it might be, or as interested as you might be in it – if that speaker really has no interest in the topic, I think it’s going to affect the whole performance.”

Bette Lou Higgins’ Big Tip: “Practice. Everything gets easier the more you do it.” In addition, “there is no substitute for actually doing it in front of a live audience.”
