How to Speak in Public

 


Does the thought of addressing a crowd—or even a few classmates or coworkers—keep you up at night? You can learn how to perform this feat without losing sleep—or your lunch.


You Will Need
A tape recorder, a video camera, or a friend
Index cards
A pen
And an audience

Step 1:
Choose familiar topic

If possible, choose a topic that you’re familiar with. This will make it easier for you to feel confident and share some personal experiences. Being enthusiastic about the subject is also helpful.

Step 2:
Do your research.

Make sure you have a broad understanding of the topic as well as a few facts and figures to bring up.

Don’t overdo it—people will tune out if you hit them with too many statistics. Be judicious with the numbers

Step 3:
Choose main points

Choose two to three main points. You don’t need to give an exhaustive account of your topic.


Step 4:
Keep it brief

If you talk for too long, people’s concentration will begin to drift, no matter how riveting you are.

Step 5:
Know your audience

This will help you tailor your talk to fit their needs. Ask yourself what they’re hoping to get from your speech.

To establish a connection with your audience, learn the names of some of its members beforehand, and incorporate them into your talk.

Step 6:
Use an outline

It’s best if you don’t have to read your speech verbatim. You might have to write it out initially, but when you’re ready to speak, an outline will help you remember your main points.

Write your outline on index cards, which will be less awkward than paper to flip through while you’re speaking.

Step 7:
Rehearse

Some experts recommend memorizing your speech, while others say to present your main points but also speak off the cuff. Test both methods by using a tape recorder, video camera, or a friend who’s willing to listen.

Concentrate on what you’re actually saying so it doesn’t sound rote. Even if you’ve rehearsed every day for a month, you want it to sound spontaneous.

Step 8:
Relax

When it’s time to speak, do your best to relax. If you’re in a place where you can stretch, stretch away. And breathing exercises are always useful.

Step 9:
Plant feet firmly

Plant your feet firmly—but keep your legs slightly bent to prevent locking your knees, which can lead to fainting. Make sure your upper body is aligned with your legs, and don’t sway.

Step 10:
Watch your hands

Keep your hands on the podium, holding your outline, or just down at your sides—but not in your pockets. You can gesture if it helps, but be careful not to overdo it or nervously repeat the same gesture.

Step 11:
Make eye contact

Maintain eye contact. Imagine that the audience are friends and family, and address them personally.

Step 12:
Smile

Don’t forget to smile, unless, of course, you’re speaking on a particularly somber topic.

Step 13:
Nobody's perfect

Remember, you don’t have to be perfect. Nobody is perfect. It’s okay to make some mistakes.

Don’t forget that the audience is on your side. They know how hard it is to speak in public and they are most likely admiring your bravery.

Step 14:
Be yourself

You have something to bring to this topic that nobody else does, so don’t hold back from sharing some of your own experiences and knowledge.

Step 15:
Use humor

Use humor when appropriate, and don̻’t be afraid to mention your shortcomings and mistakes if they help make a point. The audience will love you for it, and you just might grow to love—or at least endure—public speaking.

Did you know
In a 1974 episode of The Brady Bunch, Marcia Brady advised her sister Jan to imagine that the audience was in their underwear. Hey, it’s worth a try!
