Authenticity – Executive Speaking

By Dec 7, 2018 April 12th, 2019 Podcast

When presenting, authenticity reinforces your authority and develops trust between you and your audience. But how can you maintain authenticity when relying on notes or a script? Vanessa is joined by actress, Anna, to discuss the importance of authenticity in speaking. Anna provides insight from her acting experience to speak on maintaining authenticity while reading from a script.

Vanessa brings in expertise from Anett Grant’s Fast Company article titled “Do These 4 Things to Appear Authentic in Your Presentation” to provide tips on projecting authenticity. Although a script is a useful tool for important presentations, Vanessa and Anna explain how coming off “too scripted” can alienate your audience and dilute your message.
