  1. Know your material.  Once you have picked a topic you are interested in, be sure to know more than you include in your speech. Use personal stories to relate to the topic. Use conversational language.
  2. Practice. Rehearse out loud and repeat this action often.
  3. Know your audience. Greet audience members as they arrive. Converse with them prior to giving your speech.
  4. Know the room. Arrive early. Practice using microphone and walk around the stage.
  5. Relax. Transform nervous energy into enthusiasm. Try breathing exercises.
  6. Visualize yourself giving the speech. Imagine the audience clapping and giving a standing ovation.
  7. Realize people want to succeed. Audiences want you to be interesting, stimulating. informative, entertaining. They want to succeed, not fail.

  9. Concentrate on the message. Focus your attention away from your own anxieties and concentrate on your message and your audience.
  10. Gain experience. Experience builds confidence, which is the key to effective speaking.
