Inaugural Address: The First Speech You Give in Your New Position | Public Speaking | Presentation Skills

The time for a new President in the United States means an inaugural address. These are especially important because they get so much attention from the media and the public all around the world.

John F Kennedy inaugural address famously mentioned, ‘ Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country’.

I work with presidents of countries and Prime Ministers all around the world and I can tell you that they put a lot of attention on this. So what does this mean to you if you are the new CEO of a company or the new President of your local Chamber of Commerce?

You need to realise that your first speech is the one that is going to get extra attention and extra focus from people so you have got to really make it a great. This needs to be a speech that you have given a lot of thought to because people are going to look at everything else you do through the lens of what you said at the beginning. It needs to lay out your number one goal.

A good inaugural address can have a very big positive impact on your career. If you want to improve your speech delivering skills, then you can contact me.
