Impromptu Speaking Tips

April 7, 2011

At some point in our careers or personal lives, we have to give an impromptu speech. The next time you’re put on the spot, be ready with these handy tips…

What do I say?

  1. Decide quickly what your one message will be – Pick one message and focus on that main idea
  2. Do NOT try to memorize what you will say – Think about the message, not the words
  3. Start off Strong & with Confidence – Try to plan what your first sentence will be
  4. Maintain eye contact with the audience – Focus on their forehead if you can’t look them in the eyes
  5. Have a good conclusion

Just remember, keep it conversational and think of the audience as a group of friends.
