Your audience will not remain attentive unless you work to keep them listening. It is up to you to grab their attention and hold on to it. Think of this as a performance, and that means you need to work harder to get the reactions you are looking for.

Time your speech to know the length of your speech. This way, you can cut it down or add to it if needed. If your speech isn’t long enough, you’ll have time to do some more research to lengthen it. Finally, don’t rush when speaking.

If you want others to get the most from your speech, make sure to prepare. Be prepared when it comes to your topic. To support a particular fact, research it thoroughly before stating it. Jot down notes on what you would like to say. Practice daily until you know your speech by heart. This will boost your confidence and impress your audience too.

When preparing to make a speech, be sure to understand the concept of your topic first. Research your topic completely. Make notes of this and use it in your speech. Being prepared will help when you have to answer questions from the audience.

Look at the room you need to make the speech in. Determine if your voice will carry well without a microphone. Use the equipment on hand, if necessary. Make sure you know the right way to use visual aids or any relevant equipment. Get a good feel for the best ways to make and hold eye contact with your audience too.

Practice makes perfect when it comes to public speaking. A good way to practice your speech and critique your mannerisms is by looking into a mirror as you’re talking. You can also practice in front of your friends or family for constructive criticism.

Now you can become the public speaker that you always wanted to be. Put these tips into practice. The more often you practice, the better you will be. Do not let fear overtake you. Work through it!

  1. I think it is not enough to be able to stand in front of an audience and say a few words. You should be able to stand and deliver a well thought out presentation that captivates your audience. You must give all of your heart, mind, strength and energy to your audience.

    • I agree Neil that being a great public speaker is more than getting over the stage fright. But the first step is being able to get up and say anything at all without sweating putty-balls or passing out or throwing up! After this first step then the delivery of the speakers well planned information comes into play to take the speaker on his way to becoming great. But, for folks with this blind panic of public speaking the first step is so very important – without it there will never be any progress and no one will know what gem of information they could have heard if the speaker can not speak.
