Speech Delivery Guidelines1. Extemporaneous delivery looks spontaneous, sounds conversational, and seems effortless. (It is the result of much hard work)


3. USE DIRECT EYE CONTACT WITH YOUR LISTENERS! (audience)4. Check your volume so you will be heard. (when speaking)5. Be focused on communicating your message, rather than on your nerves, success/failure, etc. 6. Speak normally. (Nerves can speed us up).7. Don't be afraid to pause. (Works for dramatic affect and audience interest).8. Avoid vocalized thought-gathering; "ums"," uhs"," ya knows" and etc.9. Articulate! Don't mumble. (Speak those words carefully ^_^)10. Correct pronunciation a must. (Otherwise, your credibility suffers).11. Keep it fluent. Avoid choppiness through a lot of practice.12. Practice frequently. (4 - 6 times per session initially).13. Maintain eye contact as much as possible. (Random - no more than two seconds on any one person.  How else can you read them for feedback?  Concentrate on the "headnodders" or the "distracted" - make them notice that you're aware of them.)14. Facial Expression must be consistent with your message.15. Gestures should be natural and illustrative.16. Lean toward the audience slightly, not away.17. Free yourself from podium or lectern. (One looks wooden if they don't.)18. Move purposefully between points. (remember to deliver points from a stationary position)19. Practice with speaker notes on 3X5 or 4X6 notecards. Practice alone, then with video/audio tape and last with an audience of friends and family.
