Make sure your head is in a good place. It’s quite normal to feel nervous. There are so many other people who feel the same way before public speaking, too. It is not okay if you are thinking negatively. If you lack confidence, your speech will reflect it. Believe that you will give a great speech, and you probably will.

TIP! Think positively about your speech. Being nervous before a speech is natural and normal.

Try to have water nearby during your speech.Do not keep a lot of dairy products on the day you are to speak. These fluids could thicken your saliva and may even stimulate mucous production. A nice cup of warm tea just before a speech helps to relax tense vocal cords.

Understand the audience you are speaking to. No two audiences are the same, and will expect something unique each time you speak. For instance, co-workers will be looking to gain knowledge. Friends and family will generally expect you to entertain them. Make sure that you appeal to the audience at all times.

Visual Aids

To help still your nerves, imagine you are an audience member. Are you the kind of person that would chuckle and point out mistakes of the speaker? Would it make you think less of the person? If you make errors, it’s not a catastrophe since you’re your worst critic.

TIP! Put yourself in the audience when you deliver a speech. If you were, would you laugh at the speaker if it wasn’t appropriate? Would you lose any respect for the speaker? Mistakes happen.

Make sure the visual aids are not distracting. You only want them to help enhance what you are saying. You do not want them to overwhelm your message to get lost. Make sure the visual aids are high quality and focus in on your key points. Make them colorful and neat but not too distracting.

Don’t tell the audience that you’re nervous about speaking before them. That way, you will come across as an authority, not someone who is overly nervous. In most cases, nobody will have a clue about how nervous you are. No matter how you really feel, let them believe you are confident.

TIP! Try not to announce to the audience that you are really nervous about giving your speech. Your speech can be more powerful without it.

Before writing your own speech, study some of the professionals. You will learn a lot about mannerisms and techniques this way. Determine what they do that makes them as successful as they are. Examine their body language and other habits. Learn what they do to be effective at public speaking.

TIP! Study speeches of successful public speakers. You will pick up many useful tips by watching videos of them in action.

Start any speech by telling a story to connect with the audience better. This can be from your past. Adding a personal story will help your subject matter appeals to audience connect with you. Do not include any parts of your speech.

To get ready for a public speech, get your voice warmed up beforehand. This is critical if you’re speaking early in the morning. If not, you may have tons of vocal tension during the speech. This leads to cracks and high pitches in your voice.

TIP! Make sure to warm up your vocal chords. Especially if you must speak early in the morning, this is critical.

Don’t tell the audience know you’re nervous about speaking before them. Your words will be more meaningful without the audience believes you are confident. It often seems our nervousness must be easy to see, but it usually is not. It is better to let them think that you are confident and in charge, even if you feel like butterflies are battling it out in your stomach.

Open your speech up for questions at the end. Allow the last quarter of your time for a Q&A session. Make sure your answers are concise to allow for maximum questions being asked.
