Transcript

  • 1. Talking to a group Mr O’Meara
  • 2. Do: Make Eye Contact • You don’t have to look at everyone. • But, you should be looking at someone when you are speaking. • Don’t just stare at your notes. • Don’t just stare at the floor.
  • 3. Do: Speak Clearly • Make sure you open your mouth when you are speaking. • Project your voice. – Everyone needs to hear you clearly. • Don’t mumble. • Don’t put your hand or a pen in your mouth.
  • 4. Do: Put Some Life into Your Voice • Allow yourself to talk more softly at times. • Allow yourself a louder voice at times. • Sound confident and interested. – If you sound bored, your audience will be bored.
  • 5. Do: Maintain a Good Pace • Don’t good too fast or too slow. – You will probably talk faster when you are nervous. – Take a deep breath and slow down. • Use silence to separate your points. • Use silence to let information sink in.
  • 6. Do: Know Your Material • Expand on what it says in your presentation. • Don’t just read it word for word. • Be interesting.
  • 7. Do: Allow Yourself to Move • Keep your body moving. • If you can, walk a little while facing your audience. • Use your arms and face to accentuate your points. • Don’t just stand there looking scared. • Don’t turn your back on your audience.
  • 8. Don’t: Read Your Presentation • Public speaking is not public reading. • You should know what you are talking about. • Practice at home at least three times. – Better to feel foolish in private than to actually look foolish in front of people. • You can have notes, of course. – But there are there as a backup, not the main plan.
  • 9. Don’t: Give Up • You might feel nervous. • You might forget something. • You might forget a few things. • Keep going. – You will get to the end soon enough.
  • 10. Good Luck • You will be just fine.
