How Can I Become More Comfortable Delivering My Speech?

The more you practice - out loud - the more confident and relaxed you will be. It's also important to know your opening and close down cold. Here are five ways you can help familiarize yourself with your speech:

  1. Write out what you want to say
  2. Audiotape and listen to yourself giving your speech while in your car
  3. Create a pictorial map of key thought chunks and use it to practice out loud
  4. Give your talk while walking through your home. Change rooms with each new section of the talk
  5. Tell jokes, stories, and examples from your speech to friends or associates before you give it
