Have a point and stick to it Speak clearly Adjust your speech for your audience Don't patronize Be interesting Speak up Be honest Organize what you're saying Be an important person Be polite, follow social conventions and be rational Created by R Rina Husnaini Febriyanti
Have a point and stick to it speak on a certain subject. Even in casual conversation, though, it is important to focus on a limited set of related ideas.
Speak clearly It may be tempting to say, "El whooziwhatsit fonctionne bien in thinger teh other day." It may also not be worth the listener's time to try to figure out what you mean
Adjust your speech for your audience A technical audience will appreciate your use of jargon and acronyms. If your audience has trouble grasping the concepts you are relating, it may be necessary to speak slowly and offer generally familiar examples.
Don't patronize When people are treated like idiots or little children they may become hostile and ignore what you're saying. You sound patronizing when you use sing-song tones in your speech or sigh loudly.
Be interesting Always giving interesting in anything.
Speak up People have to hear what you are saying even if they are sitting in the back row or there is a lot of noise.
Be honest Remember the story of the boy who cried, "Wolf!"
Organize what you're saying If there are several ideas or details related to your main point, speak about each one in a deliberate fashion. If you are trying to convey large amounts of information, you may need to outline what you will say at the outset and then summarize what you've said at the conclusion.
Be an important person Have a lot of initials after your name. Be famous. Be beautiful. Work in a job where you wear a uniform and people are expected to listen to you.
Be polite, follow social conventions and be rational Obviously there are many speakers that do not follow this step and yet have large and doting audiences. You probably aren't one of those speakers.
