What do I speak on when I'm given a platform to do one?
If you have been given a platform to speak, speak. You'll never know that the outcome could lead you to some business prospects, or solutions to someone's problem; and definitely it will develop your self-confidence. While there is a saying, "Practice Makes Perfect", but the more exposure you'll have, the better speaker you'll be.
So what to speak, then?
We can use this guideline (P.E2):
Share about things that you are passionate about. If you are into football, share your insights about football. If
you like baking, share your experience when and why did you start to do baking.
Everyone has a passion (or more). When you share about what you are passionate about, you will have content to share to the audience; and your story will come naturally.
2) Expertise/ Experience
Everyone is an expert in their own area/ field. When you share with others on what you are good at, it could benefit others who come to listen to you.
Pepper that with that stories with your life experiences. People like to hear stories. Stories moved people and your stories could inspire and motivate others.
