Many people dread speaking in public. Whether we like it or not, there will come a time when we have to stand and speak in front of an audience. It could happen in school, in a company presentation, a public service event in your community, or even in a formal family gathering. It is good to be prepared when these speaking tasks come.
A number of exercises exist for helping people improve the physical delivery of their speeches. Here are some tips to strengthen the various aspects of physical speech delivery:
• To improve vocal variety, read aloud from the phone bookor a cook book with expression.
• To improve eye contact, have several of the audience raise
• To improve eye expression, use a sheet of paper with a rectangle cut out large enough to expose the eyes. Look into a mirror, through the paper, so that you can see only your eyes. Use your eyes to express these emotions: joy, anger, surprise, sadness, etcetera.
With good speech content and preparedness in speech delivery, hopefully when the next opportunity arises you will have the confidence needed
