Five Ways Public Speaking Can Help Your Stammering

Fear of speaking full stop…

It’s a well known fact that the one of the greatest fears of the majority of people in the world is public speaking, i.e. standing in front of a group of unknown people and speaking.

Then there is about 1% of the population whose greatest fear is speaking full stop, not just in front of unknown people, but in most situations! These are people who stammer or stutter.

So if you’re a person who stammers, why would you want to try out public speaking?
In my opinion there isn’t a better way to increase your confidence in speaking up. In the process you will also learn a bunch of other key skills to help you in your everyday life.

In order to get started, I’m going to suggest that you join a Speakers Club – the Association of Speakers Clubs in the UK or Toastmasters worldwide.
The beauty of Speakers Clubs is that you get feedback and you can practise in a relaxed, friendly and supportive environment.

So now let’s take a look at the five benefits you can expect from your public speaking:
 

1 – Learn to speak up

Put simply, you will learn to speak up.
By getting up in front of a group of people and speaking out aloud, you slowly begin to break down the fear of speaking. By doing so, you increase your ability to speak up in everyday situations, with friends, family, colleagues and with people you may have just met.
 

2 – Assertiveness

By continuing to get up in front of a group and talking, your assertiveness will increase, particularly in those situations where you would normally hold back.
There is nothing like the feeling of voicing your opinion during an occasion you know you would usually avoid!
Gaining confidence in speaking can also mean you will be more likely to speak up in a situation first, which just increases your assertiveness even more!
 

3 – Listening skills

A big part of public speaking is standing up and giving mini and longer speeches.
Equally important is giving a review of the speech of another person.
This not only involves you to keep your eyes open, so you can assess the performance of the speaker you are reviewing, but also to keep your ears open so you know what they’ve talked about.

Doing this again and again can improve your listening skills tremendously. This in turn can help greatly at work and in social situations, when you’re having conversations with other people.
 

“One of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart that you can’t utter.”
James Earl Jones

One of the iconic voices of our time, James Earl Jones stuttered as a child and took acting lessons to help.

 

4 – Increase your leadership and management skills

As you gain experience in public speaking at a particular club, you then also have the opportunity to get further involved in the running and management of a club, should you wish.
This can include taking roles such as Treasurer where you oversee the finances of your club, Social Secretary where you help to promote your club and organise social events, right up to Vice-President and President where you lead your club and have final say for major decisions to be made!
All the skills you develop from such roles can directly be transferred both at work and at home.
 

5 – Increase your social circle

Attending public speaking meetings is a great way to improve your social skills because you get to interact with other members! By doing this you make friends.
There is usually an interval during a meeting, which is time to catch up with existing members, and chat with new ones over a cup of coffee, or half a pint if you’re close to a pub!

Clubs also usually have their own special seasonal events such as formal dinners and casual lunches where again you can socialise.
 

And in conclusion ladies and gentlemen….

So there you have it.
Five ways that public speaking can help you, if you’re a person who stammers.
As you can see the benefits go far beyond increasing your speaking confidence.

What you will learn can be transferred in your everyday life to improve both your professional and social life. Sometimes the impact that public speaking can make in your life can be drastic.
I know believe me… it helped me get a job!

    Can’t thank you enough for this post.
    I’m sure that it is going to encourage, help and inspire so many people out there.

    I’ve known you for a few years now and heard you speak at one of the ASC District competitions – you are a role model for us all.

    A pleasure and a privilege to call you a friend.

  2. Good job, Hiten. I know people who reportedly stammered a bit when they were children, but thankfully outgrew the problem. However, family members poked fun at them and now as adults they’re more reserved and quiet than necessary because of that childhood baggage.

    I’m reminded that Moses complained to God how he lacked strong verbal skills, but God selected him to lead the people anyway. Exodus 4:10, “And Moses said unto Jehovah, Oh, Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant; for I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.”

    Few men have led as capably.

    • Hi Randy,

      Yes, as you rightly say, some children outgrow it, but others continue to become adults who stammer.

      And it is events that happened in childhood that can continue to be traumatic for a person in adulthood.

      However, a person shouldn’t despair. There are many things that he/she can do to increase their self-confidence and public speaking is indeed one of them.

      And what a powerful quote you included! This is truly inspirational and a brilliant example of how people with speech difficulties can go on to become great leaders!

      Thank you very much for your comment Randy, and for adding your valuable and much appreciated insights to this post. :-)

    • Hi Randy
      Marvelous comment and quote.

      “And Moses said unto Jehovah, Oh, Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast spoken unto thy servant; for I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.”

      If we do need help with eloquence, the King James is not a bad place to start.

      Good to hear from you.

    • Excellent example, Randy. And for those who would counter with how God selected Aaron to be Mose’s mouthpiece, let’s go ahead and remind them not to use that as a crutch, but instead, practice Hiten’s #2 recommendation: assertiveness. (Or, to put it another way, follow Aaron’s lead!) :)

  4. Nice to make your acquaintance in the blogosphere, Hiten.

    Beautiful post!

    Don’t pay any attention to Keith when he says things like “my speeches have captivated thousands and bored millions”.

    He can’t pull the wool over our eyes, can he!? We know better. The guy’s a brilliant piece of work.

    And his public speaking skills aren’t too shabby, either. ;)

    I seldom have an issue with stammering or stuttering …

    Except when someone asks me to divulge my age or how much money I make. For some odd reason, the words simply refuse to roll off my tongue. LOL!

    I sense you possess a purple passion for helping others overcome the fear of public speaking. And I have a hunch your personal story plays a big role.

    Keep beating that drum, Hiten — loads of people need to follow the rhythm!

    Thanks, Keith, for inviting Hiten to take the seat of honor on easyP as a guest author.

    Thoroughly delightful post!

        • Hi Melanie,

          Yes, I find the comment you made about being an introvert quite interesting!

          I’m still very much an introvert, but have learnt to be an extrovert. If I go into a situation and have decided to be an extrovert, and others don’t know me there, people just thing “he’s a friendly and chatty guy”.

          If I go into a situation and act extroverted and some people do know me there, who know I’m naturally an introvert, then it’s very interesting to see their reactions!

          But that’s the power of change.
          Many people lock themselves into ‘labels’ and find it hard to get out of them. Truth for me is we can be different ‘labels’ in different contexts.

          Thanks for the question Melanie!

  5. Public speaking is one of the most common fears. I do think that stammeriing can sometimes be affected by confidence. If you force yourself to practice public speaking, the resulting gain in confidence can help many with this kind of speech impediment. It just takes a lot of practice.
    Richard´s last great post ..4 Categories of Making Money OnlineMy Profile

    • Hi Richard,

      Yes, as you say stammering really can affect one’s confidence. And public speaking is an incredible way to increase this confidence! And practice as you mentioned, is really important.

      It’s just like learning and developing any skill. At the start we don’t really know what we are doing, but we watch and hear others, read around the area, and then practice. Before we know it, we have become highly competent in the skill, and it’s the same with public speaking!

      Thanks for dropping by Richard. I really appreciate your comment.

    Hi Hiten,

    Funny you should post an article on how public speaking has helped stammerers! I’m starting a Toastmasters club primarily for people who stammer :-)

    http://www.stammering.org/tm.html

    We’ve had two meetings, and they’ve both been full. The response has been very positive, and I’ve already seen people change in this short time.

    Toastmasters has helped me to change my life. I now cannot imagine life WITHOUT public speaking – oh, I still stammer, but it doesn’t matter so much.

    Like yourself I’ve entered speech contests, and they’re helped me grow tremendously. This is a video of me competing at the London level last April: http://www.trojanspeakers.co.uk/

    And here’s a BBC interesting highlighting what Toastmasters has done for me.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-12327847

    Public speaking is one of the best forms of speech therapy that I have tried.

    Take care, andtajing for the great article.

    • Hi Harry,

      I just saw your ‘Chasing Dreams’ speech.

      It was very powerfully delivered my friend, and highly inspirational! You had fantastic body language, lovely change in modulation of voice, passion, strong and belief and tons of humour!

      Brilliant.

      I just saw the piece on you on the BBC. I really loved the way you explained your experiences when you were watching the film ‘The King’s Speech’, and how public speaking is the best form of speech therapy! I totally agree with you.

      The point you made about being in school and finding one day you weren’t able to say your name, and then becoming very conscious of your speech; this is very similar to how I started to stammer as well!

      And you are right; ‘The King’s Speech’ really is a Godsend for people who stammer.

      Thanks for commenting Harry, and keep up the extraordinary work you are doing for the stammering community. :-)

  7. Great post Hiten!

    You put up some very valid points about how to overcome the fears of public speaking!

    However, whether you stammer or not, these work perfect for all kinds of people! I know for myself, I had a fear of public speaking for a very long time and had to fight it off on my own- with will power and determination.

    I guess once you make up your mind you can move mountains and do anything and everything possible.

    Thanks for sharing :)

      Yes, you are the right. The benefits of public speaking are for all, and not only people who stammer. I’m really glad to hear you were able to overcome your own fear of public speaking.

      What never ceases to amaze me is that this is one self-help technique that can have such a dramatic impact on one’s life. The ability to be able to voice our opinions and communicate in this world is so important. Public speaking can definitely help those who would like to improve their communication skills.

      As you say, with will power, determination and a decision to act, we really can move mountains.

  8. Hi Hiten,

    I enjoyed reading your post.

    While I have never stuttered or stammered I was incredibly shy when I was at school. This was for a reason of course: one of the lessons I came here to learn this time was to learn to express myself and my feelings.

    One of the best things I ever did was get involved with public speaking and debating at school. Over time my shyness was transformed through my increased confidence.

    I came to love public speaking which I continued to so at Toastmasters and Rotary Clubs.

    All the benefits you mention I came to experience so can highly endorse all you said here.

    • Hi Marcus,

      I’m really glad you liked the post my friend! :-)

      I can so relate to you about being shy. I was very shy when I was a kid, and stuttering contributed to it a lot. And once a kid becomes quiet, others pick up on that, and the kid gets labelled as being ‘shy’ and ‘quiet’.

      It’s easy for an immature mind to quickly take on and believe the opinions of others and then continue living as if the labels given to the person are real, which of course we know are not.

      It’s great to hear your love of public speaking is continuing! It’s also turned into one of my biggest hobbies.

      I really appreciate your comment Marcus, and for adding your valuable views to this post.

  9. The most interesting thing I learned about speaking up, is taking a breath.

    It’s more than just a way to help your voice be heard … it’s also a way to hit the high notes. The beauty is a good breath, can also be a powerful way to center yourself and stand strong.

    • Hi J.D. Meier,

      I totally agree with you! As you say, good and deep breathing can be so effective in helping us to speak clearly, and makes us feel confident and grounded too. I experience this when I breathe properly as well. I liked what you said about breathing helping us hit high notes.

    Wonderful collaboration today. I’ve always loved public speaking. I can say that it is a skill worth developing for the betterment of whatever one is up to in life. For me, speaking ignites my passion for teaching, and expands the reach of a message of empowerment to wider and wider audiences. Whenever we teach, we learn the lesson deeper in our own consciousness.

    • Hi Rob,

      It’s so nice of you to drop by, and for sharing your love of public speaking.

      I really appreciate your point about speaking igniting your enthusiasm to teach. And you certainly are one great teacher Rob!

      Public speaking certainly is a great skill, that can support people in the teaching and training professions.

      The point you made about the lessons we teach becoming more deeply embedded in our mind-body is so true. I’m sure this contributes to ourselves, living out in our own lives, the lessons and principles we teach others.

      Thanks for your thought provoking comment Rob. :-)

  11. Hi Hiten and Keith,

    I’ve never been one too afraid to get up in front of people, but I do from time to time get the “uh’s” and “um’s”, if you know what I mean. I’ve come to believe though that a lot of that comes from being unprepared, and not practicing before the speaking engagement. When I was a flight attendant, I noticed the difference when I was tired from lack of sleep and then being the lead flight attendant and having to do the take off and landing announcements. After day 4 of a four day trip, speaking can get kind of difficult. :) Preparation, proper breathing, and lots of rest have proved to be key pointers for me. But each of the tips you listed have proven helpful time and time again too. :)

    • Hi Deeone,

      Yes, the “um’s” and “ah’s” are definitely ones to watch out for when public speaking :-)

      And you are spot on mate; it can give the impression to the audience that the speaker is not prepared. One way this can be dealt with is just to pause, breath, and allow the ‘need’ to say “um” or “ah” to pass.

      I never knew you used to be a flight attendant. You never cease to amaze me Deeone! :-)

      You summed it up with some great points. Good preparation, proper breathing, and enough rest are vital ingredients for effective public speaking.

I was never really sacred to speak in public, in fact I was quite confident….then I went to Toastmasters and realised that I was a very confident novice! training made the difference for me, it has and is refining me. I didnt even have a clue that public speaking was taugh, i WASN’T even interested in it my wife asked me to go. I discovered that once you’ve learnt and commit to growth the world opens up! it has for me. great blog post:)

      I’m the same. Public speaking changed my life too! It helped me develop so much confidence; I don’t know what state I would still be in, had I not started to do it.

      The other day at a meeting, I was talking to a more experienced speaker who had just finished giving an introduction speech about public speaking to the newer members, about how the skills we learn in public speaking are directly applicable in everyday situations, when we need them the most.

  17. Thanks Hiten – some great points here, and your courage is inspiring!

    Last week I gave my first Ignite talk, for which we did a dress rehearsal in front of all the other Ignite speakers. During that rehearsal, I could literally see the mic shaking in my hand due to nerves, which further dented my confidence!

    Yet, when we came to the Ignite night itself, I felt noticeably more confident. Can’t be sure why, as several things were different, but I’m betting on 2 main reasons:
    = I’d boiled down my talk to the 1 key point I wanted to make about each slide (which made it far easier to remember, and also put me blissfully at peace about the other things that I might or might not remember to say)
    = Shortly before my talk, I followed the advice of Amy Cuddy of Harvard Business School and did some “power poses”, which research shows has a positive effect on your body chemistry. (See http://remotepossibilities.wordpress.com/?s=cuddy )

    Anyway, thanks for your post, and keep up the great work!

      Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with Ignite Speaking. I’ve just done a quick search on it and it seems very interesting.

      Congratulations on giving your first Ignite speech! I really appreciate you sharing your approach of keeping 1 key point for each slide. This is an excellent way to present.

      I’m very similar to you, and when I’m presenting in a work environment I like to have less words than more, because it just makes it so much easier for the audience to absorb what we are talking about.

      Thanks also for sharing the link on the “power poses”.

      What I find useful to is powerfully tell myself while I’m driving in the car, before I’m about to give a speech that “I am confident!” and “I will speak confidently!” in a powerful tonality.

    Great post Keith! Just wanted to add something though, based on my experience.

    I know a lot of my classmates who stammer and as communication students, most of our task was public speaking. I noticed that the main reason they do that is they get nervous because they’re not actually confident of the knowledge they have on the topic. So one great way to be able to avoid that is to study and familiarize yourself with what your about to say. If you’re confident and know you’re knowledgeable enough, then you won’t get nervous and stammer.
