Public Speaking

You're probably comfortable when you talk to your family. You're fine on the phone with your best friend. You might even be comfortable speaking in front of a class. But what about speaking to a large group? Public speaking makes most people uncomfortable or nervous. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to make it easier. The next time you have to do a presentation or make a speech, try these techniques. Choose a Topic You Know: Think about yourself. Who are you, and what do you know a lot about? When you speak to a group, you have to be yourself. Don't try to talk about something you know little about. And don't try to be someone you're not. If you love computers, for example, do a presentation on the latest technology. Include personal stories and use a conversational tone. Your audience wants to hear about your knowledge, and they want to see your real personality. Practice and Practice Again: After you plan your presentation, it's time to practice. Use a clock so that you know how long your presentation will take. Then do your whole presentation out loud. That's right---you need to say the words. Be sure to practice with the equipment you plan to use such as a laptop or projector. Practice more than once, and practice in front of a friend or family member if possible. They might be able to give you some helpful advice.

Use Eye Contact and Gestures: Words are only one way to communicate. You can also connect with your audience with body language. First, make eye contact. Look directly at people in the audience so that they feel you are really talking to them. Second, use natural movement and gestures. Walking around a little can make you look less nervous. And using your hands while you talk can also be helpful. Never Say "You're Sorry": Finally, never apologize for being nervous during a presentation. The audience probably doesn't see how nervous you are, and they are more interested in hearing about your topic. And if you don't know the answer to a question, that's all right. You don't have to say you're sorry. Just explain that it's not something you know about and move on to the next question.
