3 Ways To Make Yourself Heard For The First Time As A Speaker

October 14, 2008

Tonight’s meeting at The National University of Singapore Toastmasters Club saw 7 new Toastmasters presenting their Project 1 speakers. It was heartening and encouraging to see how much effort they had put into ensure their maiden speech was well presented. Congratulations to all the speakers tonight!

With regular practice, your commitment to becoming a better speaker will bear fruits soon.

Here are some of the ways you can create an impact as a first-time public speaker:

1. It’s always interesting to share with your audience the culture you come from.

2. Provide your audience a more vivid account and highlight the background to how you embarked unto this path of self-improvement.

3. Seek to pepper your speech with interesting incidents you’ve encountered.

Welcome to the journey of speech competence. May you always Excel Beyond Excellence!
