I am making a speech tomorrow; last minute public speaking tips
I know that all our students are well prepared but here are some last minute ideas which apply to any presentation you make.
If you are using cue cards, make sure that they only contain key words so you aren't tempted to read.
Number your cue cards; there is nothing worse than dropping them just before your speech.
If you are using PowerPoint, try to incorporate pictures rather than words.
Use your visual aids to remind you of your main points.
Choose images/graphs which add more information or insight to your points.
Try to scan your audience as you speak.
Judge the area you have to work with and consider moving around to emphasise your key points.
Relax and smile; audiences will engage more with an approachable speaker.
Good luck everyone!
