Tips for Talks
- Speak clearly.
- Speak loudly enough to be heard everywhere in the room.
- Rehearse your talk (and time yourself).
- Keep within your time limit.
- Make eye contact whenever possible.
- Begin and end decisively.
- Take a slow deep breath or two before speaking.
- Organize your talk well, but don’t be afraid to speak spontaneously if you become inspired. Relax–it’s just your class!
