Make it short. Don’t give a speech too long, because it can make listeners feel bored. Adjust the duration of the speech to the context of the problem, and don’t wander out of the topic for too long.
Make it simple. Listeners will catch one or two of the ideas that you convey. Not ten or twenty. If you cannot express it in one-two sentences, the speech will be less focused.
Be realistic. You are asked to give a speech because you have experiences that the listener does not have. Share the experience, and make them feel what you feel.
Attract the audience. In the first minutes of the speech, make connections with listeners. Smile or nod at the moderator. Make eye contact, and spread the view to the right, left and center.
Speak, not read. Speaking is far more communicative than reading. It’s good to use a small note to remind you of what you are going to say
Relax. Don’t take deep breaths too often or breathe too fast. Be relaxed and breathe appropriately, so that you stay calm.
Focus. Don’t pay your attention to anything that can distract your minds from the words that you want to speak to the audiences. Even if there’s anything funny or disturbing that happen during your speech, just try your best not to pay any mind to it, and stay within your confidence zone.
Now, giving a speech is as easy as walking. Maybe useful.
