When I first started teaching cooking classes, I practiced on small groups of friends in their homes. It was so important to troubleshoot my “shtick” in a safe setting and get a sense for all the shifting variables that would arise when I began doing classes on site in different spaces. If you’re an instructor or practitioner of any kind (yoga, meditation, cooking, etc.) it can be very helpful to develop a workshop or demo around your craft. Beyond the traditional panel or stand-on-stage-and-talk structure, many events are looking for people to create more interactive experiences. If you can leverage your ability to teach in large groups, there will be many more opportunities to increase your speaking experience.
