Tips for Giving a Knockout Speech


Did you know that speaking in public is the #1 fear of 43% of people in the world? The #2 fear is DEATH. The #3 fear is fear of flying.
Even if you aren’t afraid of presenting a speech, how do you know if you are tuned in to your audience?

Ask yourself these questions:
Does the audience understand your objectives?
Do you know how to recover from an “oops” moment (like drawing a blank while speaking)?
What do you do if you see folks yawning in the audience?
Sharon A. Hill, Distinguished Toastmasters, will present a high energy, interactive session to answer those and many more questions.
