Preparing a speech for presentation
« on: April 27, 2015, 11:52:07 AM »
Preparing for a speech is one of the best ways to ensure you give an effective presentation. Try these tips to help you properly prepare:
•   Organize your speech in a logical sequence: opening, main points, summary.
•   Practice and rehearse a speech frequently prior to delivering it. Ask friends to be your audience, or practice in front of a mirror. Be sure to use a timer to help you pace your speech.
•   Become familiar with the stage or the setting where the speech will take place. Get a sense of the size of the stage, where any steps or obstacles might be, and where to enter and exit.
•   Choose comfortable clothes to wear, but always maintain a professional appearance.
•   Visual aids should fit a speech, whether they are funny, serious or technical. The main goal of visual aids is to help the audience understand what is being said, and reinforce the points of a speech in unique and interesting ways.

Whether you're talking to a small group of people or speaking to a large audience, you want to be sure your speech is memorable and enjoyable. Follow these five easy tips to help ensure your speech delivers:
•   Be prepared. Your audience is giving you their time and consideration, so rehearse enough to be confident you'll leave a good impression.
•   Start strong. Begin your speech with a powerful opening that will grab your audience's attention, such as a startling fact or statistic, an interesting story or a funny joke.
•   Be conversational. Avoid reading your speech word for word. Instead, refer to notes or points from an outline to help your speech have a more free-flowing, conversational tone.
•   Speak with passion. If you're truly invested in what you're saying, you'll be better able to keep your audience's attention.
•   Be patient. It's easy to get frustrated if you make a mistake. But remember that public speaking is not easy and it takes time to hone your skills. Keep practicing and you will reach your goals.

Speaking with passion and conviction is the key! By the way, have you watched any TED Talks on YouTube? Some of the talks are so brilliant! Students should watch them too. It has become a hobby of mine - watching TED Talks.  :D
