Most public presentation coaches will emphasize the need to practice before speaking in front of a live audience.
Some speakers will claim that it’s difficult for them to find a quiet place to practice their speech without interruption.
Surprise! You may be better suited to a space with distraction.
Why? Practicing amidst noise and movement may actually prepare you better for the live gigs. While you’re speaking at an event, there may be background noice during virtual presentations. At live talks, there may be cell phones ringing or doors opening and closing as people come and go.
Knowing how to stay focus amidst distraction will help when you’re speaking live. Try it.
