Public Speaking

These tips came from an item on the BBC news about public speaking.

TIPS FOR PUBLIC SPEAKING
- Breathe slowly and deeply
- Warm up by pulling faces, yawning, eating pretend toffee
- Slow down first six words - that helps set smooth rhythm
- Emphasise key words
- Focus on individual faces in audience, making eye contact
- Cast yourself in role of storyteller


So now you know.

...or 'visualise the audience naked' which is one of my favourites, although the mind does wander somewhat.
