  • We are all on our own public speaking journey, keep chipping away at improvements  

Control what you can: 

  • Write your speech, familiarise yourself with it, eat well, be hydrated

Be appropriate for the space:

  • Volume, pace, tone, stance, eye contact

Variation is the secret to a great speech:

  • Be an amazing story teller with dynamics

Test the technology:

  • Computers and microphones all have little tricks

Fight bad habits:

  • Watch yourself and critique is best

It’s OK to say “um” :

  • Heck, Barack Obama writes it into his speeches!
