  • Ways to keep your audience awake…..
    • Ask rhetorical questions
    • Maintain eye contact for a second or two with as many people as possible

    • Change the volume of your voice

        • What is the best way to accomplish this?
    • Practice, practice, practice
  • Ten Successful Tips Control the “Butterflies”
    • Know the room- become familiar with the place of presentation
    • Know the audience- greet or chat with the audience before hand. It’s easier to speak to friends than to strangers
    • Know your material-increased nervousness is due to un-preparedness
  • Control the “Butterflies”
    • Relaxation- relax entire body by stretching and breathing so as to ease the tension
    • Visualize giving your speech-Visualize yourself giving your speech from start to finish. By visualizing yourself successful, you will be successful
  • Control the “Butterflies”
    • People want you to succeed-the audience is there to see you succeed not to fail
    • Don’t apologize-by mentioning your nervousness or apologizing, you’ll only be calling the audience’s attention to mistakes
  • Control the “Butterflies”
    • Concentrate on your message-not the medium. Focus on the message you are trying to convey and not on your anxieties
    • Turn nervousness into positive energy-nervousness increases adrenaline, transform it into vitality and enthusiasm
  • Control the “Butterflies”
    • Gain experience-experience builds confidence, which is key to effective public speaking
  • Practice takes you from this..
  • To this….
