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…
- Decide quickly what your one message will be – Pick one message and focus on that main idea
- Do NOT try to memorize what you will say – Think about the message, not the words
- Start off Strong & with Confidence – Try to plan what your first sentence will be
- Maintain eye contact with the audience – Focus on their forehead if you can’t look them in the eyes
- Have a good conclusion
Just remember, keep it conversational and think of the audience as a group of friends.
