7 Tips For Public Speaking

» 7 Tips For Public Speaking

Public speaking is an art-form. It may seem like something that some can do
naturally, and some can’t (let’s face it, we have all seen both good and bad
speakers) but there are things you can do to improve your public speaking. This
article contains seven great tips to help you improve your public speaking.

Talk more slowly- There are some professional speakers out
there who have made a name for themselves by speaking fast and excitedly.
However, for most speakers or people starting out, you should consciously slow
down your speech to a level slightly slower than a normal conversational pace.
Whilst it may seem weird in your head, I guarantee that it will come across
better to your audience and easier to understand.

Project your voice more- Most people will speak to softly
if you are nervous. Speak up, speak confidently- but do not YELL.

Enunciate more- Like above, whilst also getting more quiet
when they are nervous, people often start to ramble when they are nervous. Slow
down and concentrate on properly pronouncing every word. Exaggerate words,
especially if you are in a big room.

Use shorter sentences- Don’t ramble. Make sure you only
have one idea per sentence.

Use pauses effectively- If you get stuck for an idea, or
what you were going to say next, train yourself to silently pause. Whatever you
do, lose the ummmms and the aaahhhhs.

Organize your speech around separate themes- Have about 5
main points, and separate your speech around each point. You are not (I think) a
comedian who can get away rambling from joke to joke and going off on tangents.
Your audience won’t appreciate it.

Open and close with your best stuff- As much as you’d like
to think that your audience will remember the entirety of your speech, they are
most likely to remember your opening and your closing. As such, your
introduction and conclusion must include everything you really want to get
across in your speech.
