Public Speaking: What is the Value in Facing your Audience?

Content marketing has great value, but much of the content we produce can only be effectively realised if you get the distribution right.

There is a wide choice of digital channels through which to distribute your message, but there is one key channel that predates the digital revolution and is one of the oldest means of communication.

This key channel is public speaking.

Facing your audience is a very powerful means of communication, and if you are capable of integrating it into your communications strategy, it can be really effective.

 

Putting a Face to the Name

Personalising your brand, and its’ values, is a desirable, if sometimes elusive goal. The idea is to engage with customers, to attract them. Networking is one way of doing this, but it can often lack focus, and you can be working against the competing noise of everyone else in the room.

 

Public speaking enables you to address an audience directly, with the express purpose of conveying your message to them, without relying on drinks and canapés as props. You are meeting everyone in the room, guaranteed, and you are giving yourself the opportunity to make a lasting impression on your audience

 

Strategically Speaking

Using yourself as a marketing tool by speaking in public should be seen as a strategic move.

Public speaking should not be about ego; it is actually much more about your audience, and in this sense the same rules apply as with other content: address your audience’s needs, give them something of value.

This is also a form of research. By speaking to an audience and interacting with people asking you questions, you can find out more about them. They will tell you about themselves and their needs, which can then help shape your future material.

 

Public speaking is a two-way portal: you are reaching your audience, face to face, and at the same time you are making yourself accessible to them, to their ideas and feedback

 

M3 Media Publishing’s approach has always been to combine personal interaction with digital publishing and other types of content marketing.

M3 Media Publishing’s Business Connections events are a perfect example of this. They are not simply networking opportunities, they are ways of engaging with an audience directly, talking to them and interacting with them, as a key way of doing business.

Business: M3 Connections EventRBS Event Provides Business Connections Inspiration

RBS Event Provides Business Connections Inspiration

Royal Bank of Scotland (Future Williams & Glyn) hosted their recent Connections Event, in partnership with M3 Media Publishing. Over 40 business owners, leaders and entrepreneurs attended this popular, invitation-only, occasion in central Manchester.

RBS Relationship Director, Robert Taylor, talks enthusiastically about the potential of these events to unlock business opportunities.

“The purpose of the Connections Events is not to have banter and canapes.  We want to provide something of real benefit to our customers”, says Robert.  “The events bring serious decision-makers together and gives them an opportunity to explore relationships with like-minded people, in a relaxed but stimulating atmosphere”.

David Lomas, content marketing expert and CEO of M3 Media Publishing led an inspirational workshop on “The Value of a Click”.  He explained how the right kind of content, properly deployed, can lead to measurable business growth and success.

“People look for people, they don’t look for businesses.  These events are a great opportunity to get people together so they spark off one another, and see how telling their own stories can help them attract customers

David Lomas, M3 Media Publishing

“The room really came alive,” concludes David.  “Because the diverse group of people attending could see where their various interests and goals intersected, they were able to clearly express this to one another. It was a great night.”

The RBS and M3-hosted Connections Events are suitable for directors and business owners in the North West.  With attendance being by invitation only, thought-provoking ideas and lively discussions compliment the connections being made.
