Public Speaking


Public Speaking doesn't necessarily mean speaking in front of a large group of people, it could be just a handful of people but the fact that they are looking at you and waiting for you to speak can be terrifying.

The most important thing you have to do is slow your brain down. It will try to make you speak too fast and then you will panic. Slow down, open your mouth and say what you want to share.

Preparation is important, if you know in advance that you have to speak, practice out loud.

Make eye contact with your listeners, this doesn't mean that you have to stare at them, but glance at them occasionally so that they know they are included.

What people say.....

You are a "Guru" (teacher) in the true sense of the word, as you impart and share your knowledge in totality, and I'm lucky to have you as a teacher. Kavita.

I would like to thank you for helping me have confidence in my speech today. It is because of you I did much better than I have before when presenting as speech. I was a little shaky, but other than that my voice sounded fine and I pronounced every word slowly and with emphasis on those that I wanted people to hear! Elections are tomorrow. Without you, this would not have happened! You are an inspiration! Thank you so much, Joe from New York

At the end of last term my son went for head boy and delivered an amazing speech, something we never imagined he would put himself forward for. Many of the teachers complimented him and were taken aback by his confidence and presence, he buzzed with excitement for days afterwards and said he loved speaking in public. It is through all your hard work that he has this turn around in his approach to speaking and for this we will be forever grateful. Elaine
