Effective public speaking.

  1.  Visit the room.


2. Mindset. Build it up. Speak to 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 300, 1 000 etc….

Self belief.

”say it to me as a friend.”


3. Prepare.


4 major ideas.

write more than enough material.

Reasonably formal vocab. Who are you speaking to?

do not use abbreviations unless EVERYONE will understand.


4. appearance.


5. eye contact. look at foreheads.


6. no lengthy introductions.

Step up. wait for quiet. breathe. then start.

You can admit to nerves. self deprecating humour.


7. speak slowly. pause at punctuation.


8. Variety. speed, tone, volume.


9. Enjoy it or pretend to.  Be confident or trick yourself into being confident.


10. do not fill time. If you have finished before set time that is ok. Running over set time can also be ok.


11. strong finale. repetition.
