Delivering a good speech

September 27, 2010 at 6:15 pm 2 comments

Just knowing how nerve racking it is to stand in front of a class to give a speech, I plan to take the advice of chapter 12 and give myself more time in preparing and practice the speech in front of a mirror and maybe even try to record myself to see if this will actually help. My challenge that I will face is with eye contact. The only speeches that I have given are like manuscript readings where I read from notes. My goal is to deliver an extemporaneous speech where I can stand in front of people and deliver a speech and not use notes and have good eye contact with everyone instead of one person.

    I agree with you Lennie. The tips in Chapter 12 helped me as well. I too need to focus on glancing at the audience so that I keep good eye contact. I think the extemporaneous speech will be challenging while fun at the same time. Altogether, it sounds like you are benefitting from the class and that’s great to hear! I look forward to reading more of your posts and seeing how the rest of the class pans out for you.
