- Scan around the audience making eye contact with them.
- Use a loud clear voice. Don’t talk too fast and use expression in your voice to make your speech more interesting.
- Use hand gestures when appropriate. Don’t hold your palm cards up in front of your face.
- Stand still. Try not to rock back and forth or shuffle from foot to foot.
