Her stage fright moment
At the end of a big seminar, she unexpectedly had to sing along in front of 2500 people. It went well after all, and that moment is kept in her mind as “moment of success”. Nienke recommends to keep you own “moment of success” on your mind and tap into it when you need it, in order to prevent stage fright.
Being an authentic speaker
She has made a research observing top CEOs, executives, bankers, politicians, and many other speakers. Only nearly 10% of them speak authenticly.
An authentic speaker:
- Is there to serve to the audience.
- Speaks beyond her/his own ego (avoids phrases starting with “I …”).
- Masters also body language and voice. 70% is body language, 20% is voice, and 10% is content.
Her new book “The Speaker Success Solution”
After her experience learning from top class public speaking and voice coaches, and then coaching hundreds of speakers, she developed her own professional speaking system E.A.S.E. (Energy, Authenticity, Speaking skills, Engagement). Her mission is to provide the world with a voice. The book “The Speaker Success Solution” is expected to be released on April 2015.
