Do you ever wonder if you need to be more articulate? You have great ideas and no problem voicing them, but no one seems to hear them. Then, a week later, someone in a meeting shouts out the same idea. It may be less about you and more about your audience, but there are still some tips that can help:
Be clear and concise. Shorter, impactful statements help catch attention without your audience having to filter through rambling.
Connect with an individual who can help move your idea forward. Use their name when speaking to grab their attention.
Ask for immediate feedback in the room or for someone to summarize what you said. If no one was listening, it'll catch their attention and allow you to share again.
Follow it up in writing.
Pay it forward - listen to others. They might be saying more than you realize.
