Practice Makes (Almost) Perfect

Creating a successful speech takes time. It involves developing a clear purpose, analyzing your audience, creating a structure for your talk, and bringing it to life with interesting information. Once you have prepared the talk, put the key points on a few note cards.

The eight secrets of successful speaking

  1. Define the purpose of your presentation before doing anything else. 
  2. Spend plenty of time preparing your talk so it will be effective.
  3. Hook the attention of your listeners early in a speech so they will listen to the rest of it.
  4. Tell the audience why you're speaking to them at the beginning, the middle, and the end of your talk.
  5. Overcome stage fright by making it work for you.
  6. Use stories and anecdotes to bring your talk to life.
  7. Evaluate each talk you give so you can constantly improve your skills.
  8. Never stop practicing. Then rehearse it several times.

This will enable you to become comfortable with the talk and improve your delivery. Preparation and practice will make you a better speaker.

In summary . . .

Although public speaking can be intimidating, keep in mind that the people in the audience want you to succeed.
