How to practice a speech?
In this article, I want to explain the correct way to practice a speech.
Public speaking and presentation is a skill and you can’t learn a skill without practicing it. There is no way someone can learn how to swim by sitting beside the pool, telling the others: you swim, I watch and learn!
We always see in courses that people who practice, see a better result and those who don’t, won’t get very lucky.
Rehearse a speech
There are many kinds of practices for a presentation. These rehearsals must help us find our weaknesses and eliminate them. When we practice, we know in which part we may have a problem, and we try to work on it.
The best practice to rehearse a speech is a mirror.
It means you stand in front of a mirror, look into your eyes and start your presentation. When you do, your communication skills improve, you can analyze your sentences and see your facial expressions and body language.
In this video which Laura Bergells recorded for the birth of our presentation and communication skills workshop, she talks about a few ways to rehearse a speech and improve your communication skills. You can use her advice in your presentation.
