Public Speaking

Hate Public Speaking? If you have to speak in public using a microphone, make sure you speak really slowly. If you speak at a normal pace the words get lost in the echo of the microphone. To help you speak slower, open your mouth up wider than usual, this will ensure what you say is a lot slower than your usual pace. To measure how much wider, place two fingers, as if you were measuring a whiskey, between your teeth – that is how wide your mouth should be. This is actually essential for any public speaking but especially with a microphone.
