How to deliver your speech in the right way

Delivering a speech is an art. It is not as easy as it might seem. Some people are natural at it while others will need to practice hard enough. Verbal communication only makes 38 percent of one's conversation the rest depends upon non-verbal communication, gestures, eye contact and other non-verbal communication. A good speech does not require only well written content and strong evidence but it is the man behind the gun that matters. Even if the speech is not very well composed you can make it a success by delivering it in the right manner.

Here are a few tips to deliver an effective speech

Take a confident start

When you walk to the stage to deliver your speech consider yourself Mr. know it all. Don't hesitate because there are highly qualified people sitting in the audience. Think of your audience as they know nothing about the topic you have chosen and you have to explain to them what it is. This will help you build confidence

Be audible and clear

If your speech has splendid content and winning arguments but you fail to utter the words clearly or speak in a too low voice that your audience is unable to understand what you are saying the n your speech is a waste.

Build curiosity

Do not jump to your strongest point instantly. Build curiosity among the audience. Give them something they can linger to in the start and then gradually move to your main point

Vary your tone

The worst thing you can do while delivering a speech is use a monotone of voice. Vary the pith of your voice with sentences. Speak like the actors do. Speak in a way that you can keep your audience glued.

Use gestures

Gestures are the most component of a speech. You don't only have to utter the sentences you have to convince your audience to your point.

Involve your audience

Point at the, throw questions; get them involved in your speech.

Give food for thought

When you conclude your speech make sure you just don't end it like an essay. Pose a question; leave your audience with something to think upon. Leave an impression.

Give enough pauses

Do not run with the words. When you speak an important sentence wait for it to sink in. give a pause whenever needed.

Acknowledge the applause
