To do this effectively he must be a talented public speaker who is capable of commanding the attention of the room. If this is something you struggle with, do the following to improve.

 

Know Your Audience
Before you can start preparing your speech you need to develop knowledge of the audience you will be presenting to. Not only will this allow you to choose relevant content, but it will also have an influence on the tone and direction that your speech takes. You can take this a step further when you arrive at the venue by introducing yourself to audience members and establish rapports with them.

Take It Slow
Many novices make the mistake of trying to get through their speeches as quickly as possible, which results in them speaking too quickly. This increases the possibility of verbal flubs, plus you may find that audiences disengage because they detect the nervousness of the speaker. When you arrive on stage take a deep breath and speak at a comfortable pace.

Practice
Above all else you need to practice speaking. Spend time in front of a mirror so you can observe your body language when speaking and consider getting a few friends together to watch you speak and critique your technique.

Ammar Idlibi – Tips For Working With Children

As a pediatric dentist, Ammar Idlibi has extensive experience of working with children and often needs to help young people overcome their fears of dental treatment before he can assist them with their teeth. Working with children presents a number of challenges that you may not encounter when working with adults, so keep the below in mind to find success.

Keep Things Simple
You will usually find that children struggle to engage with what you say if you use complex terminology during conversation. Appreciate the fact that children, particularly younger ones, have short attention spans so you need to keep things as simple and concise as possible. Explain things in language they understand and answer any questions that they may have to help them feel more comfortable.

Use Positive Language
Negative language can have an enormous effect on a child’s psyche, which often makes it harder to work with them. This is especially true in the case of dentists, where any mentions of pain, even saying that something won’t hurt, can conjure up negative thoughts in the minds of children. Be positive in everything that you say and encourage children to keep going.

Encourage Participation
Education has always played a large role in Ammar Idlibi’s life and he encourages discussion in his dental practice. By involving young people in what you are doing you help them to learn about why it is important, while also giving yourself the opportunity to develop trust and engage children in what you are doing.
