Let’s face it. Speaking in front of a crowd can often be terrifying for some of us. Many of us are not able to project confidence because we fear that our audience will judge us. Well, if this is you, here are some tips to help you along.
Prepare Your Speech
This may seem like “duh”, but you’d be surprised at how many people struggle to give a good speech in front of an audience because of their lack of preparation. Take the time to write your speech, record yourself, listen to yourself and make some changes if necessary. You’d be amazed at what this does for you. Being prepared also makes you sound more confident.
Think Before You Speak
This may seem like something that we often tell our children. However, it should certainty be applied to adults as well. It definitely helps when we have a very clear idea of what we want to say, as this would allow us to organize our thoughts into a proper structure.
Pace Yourself When You Speak
Remember, being too fast would mean that people might not understand what you are saying. Being too slow would put you at risk of sounding monotonous, and losing the attention from your audience. Make time to practice. Record yourself, listen to yourself, and adjust your pace accordingly. You’ll be amazed at how much this would help.
