It’s time to overcome what people fear more than death is public speaking.
This article will help you prepare for the steps before performing speech. Step 1:
Part One of Three:
Preparing the Speech
- Pick your message. Your speech should be summarized. Speech that you start to finish should be simple and people can easily understand.
- Know your audience. In determining the entire speech, you will not deliver the same speech as you do for the CEO.
- Don’t ruminate about negative thoughts. Do not think the worst thing to happen, you have to overcome the fear of public speaking to give a speech according to their expectations. See who your audience and make sure they know your topic.
• Who are they? Age? • How much do they know about your topic? This will determine the amount of complicated language you can use (hint: if they do not know much, do not need to use it). • Why do they exist? Taught something? Because they have to? Because they really interested? • How long have they been there?
4. Research your subject. If your subject is you, congratulations! You probably already know you like the back of your hand (or arm or leg). But if not, be examined. Pros and cons! If people can poke holes in your argument, it’s not a very effective speech.
• Have at least three points to support the message
• Only complicate the audience as much as you can tolerate. Stay away from jargon and technical terms if it will leave your audience scratching their heads and feel out of place
5. Use stories, humor and metaphor. A speech full of dull, statistics can make the audience bored. Instead, opt for a story – it is easier to follow structure– and make them live with things like metaphor and antithesis.
• Self-deprecating humor (making fun of myself) have a place. Again, this comes down to knowing your audience and your speech format. A man best speech? Absolutely right. Overcoming the president of your company about the location of the budget? Probably not.
• The antithesis is about using the opposite
6. Use flashy adjectives, verbs and adverbs. More about being alive! Take the phrase “bad fishing industry” and change it to “practice fishing industry is terrible.” Even something as simple as “We can solve the problem,” to “We can quickly solve the problem” is more memorable. your audience may not remember exactly what you said, but they will remember the emotions you are called in themselves.
• Think active, too. “When we had the manpower, we can force change,” is much more powerful when it turned around – “We can force change when we have a workforce” Make them sit in their seats, you know?
7. Jump right in. So no hemming and “hawwing”, no apology, no “I wonder …,” no “Thank you,” only to brass tacks. Do not talk about painting – get right in there and start creating images for them. They are there for your speech, not how you feel about it or how you are feeling right now.
8. Write it out. You must have a clear introduction, body and conclusion. The introduction and conclusion should both short and to the point, the conclusion becomes a repetition of the intro. And the body? Well, that’s everything else.
Part Two of Three:
1. Write down your main points. Now you have all you want to say, write down your main points. Part of what you’re not sure of yourself on?
• Get to the point where you feel comfortable giving the speech.
2. Memorize. Okay, so this is not super necessary, but certainly a good idea. If you know by heart, you can make eye contact with the audience. Do not stress if you do not have enough time – but if you do, take advantage of it.
• This does not mean that you should go there unarmed. If your mind is empty, you can look around and go to the place where you need to. Send it to someone. This is a great idea for a few reasons:
• Communicate to someone helps you get used to someone looking at you while you’re talking. public speaking can be quite intimidating, so it had an audience of practice will help calm your nerves.
• Do they really pay attention. At the end of your speech, ask them what questions arise in their minds. Is there a hole in your argument? Or do something to confuse them?
3. Deliver it to someone. This is a grand idea for a couple of reasons:
helps you get used to someone looking at you while you’re talking, so audience will help calm your nerves. At the end of your speech, ask them what questions popped up in their mind. Were there argument or confuse them
4. Practice in front of a mirror and in the bathroom. Really, you have to practice wherever you can. But these two places will be very useful:
• Practice in front of a mirror so you can see your body language. what movement work where? How do you feel about the break and what you do for them?
• Practice in the bathroom because it’s probably one you can think of going beyond that. Is your mind a blank on each section?
5. At that time you might have some idea of how long your speech. You are given a specific time slot or you are given a length requirements for speech. Try to get it comfortably above the minimum and maximum comfortable under – that way if you do not intentionally speed up or slow down.
Third Part Three:
1. Think about your posture and body language. Stand like you have a fig leaf over your crotch is not the way to give a captivating speech. Nor should you go the opposite way and leaning on the podium. It’s best to stand up straight, feet shoulder width apart, and use your hand as naturally as possible.
• your speech convey some emotion, right? (The correct answer: Yes.) Take a moment and move with them. You use your hands at all times to express emotion. You still communicate with people, only on a larger scale. Although the scale is different, the motion remains the same.
2. if you can use props.
3. Know when and how to use the picture. A PowerPoint can be a great addition to speech (for certain topics, at least). Make sure you use it to your advantage! You want them to listen to you, not blown away by the pretty pictures.
• Use graphs to illustrate your point, especially if they are difficult to understand. The images can be more memorable than factoid just told, regardless of how important it may be.
• Do not face the picture when you’re talking!
4. Select the people in your audience, do not scan. Many people are under the impression scanning is ideal audience – and if it makes you nervous, just sort of scanning the back wall.
5. Vary your tone. In general, you should speak with a calm, level to understand and speak clearly. But to keep your audience awake and to keep your speech is dynamic, diverse it. Part you feel passionate about the need to clearly stressed! Talking loudly and with gusto! Pound your fist if you need And then there are parts that would feel more like a lullaby. And even the parts that require a pause to let the emotions set in … AND THEN BACK UP ramped. This is much more effective orally than on text.
• Show emotions in your tone. Do not be afraid to laugh a little or show a bit of sadness or frustration.
6. Do not forget about the break! Think about the phrase, “dihydrogen monoxide killed 50 million people last year. 50 million. Let that sink in.” Now think about the sentence with a pause after each period. Got a little more serious, is not it?
• Take your speech and actually write on pause if it will help you.7. Conclude by restating your message and say “Thank you.” You’ve been through speeches, no one has died, and it is time for your conclusions. Focus your eyes with the audience, thanking them, smile, and get off the stage.
• Take a deep breath. You do it. The next time you will give a speech about how to give a speech. What are you so nervous in the first place?7.
