BEING IN FRONT OF PEOPLE DOESN'T MAKE YOU A SPEAKER

Here are important tips for speaking in front of people, whether it is a formal speech or simply making an announcement. I am writing this because I have heard so many people get up to speak in church and other places who are boring and cannot be heard. Here are some basics to work on.

1. Learn how to use a microphone. Even with a microphone speak up and into it. Hold it closely to your mouth. Don't be afraid of it. If it is too loud a sound man can easily turn it down, but if it is too far away and has to be turned up a lot of ring will develop in the sound. A "speaker" came to my church recently and this guy was pathetic. He held the microphone way down by his waist. A microphone should never replace speaking out. Teach young children also how to do this. How many people have gone to children's programs at church but can't hear? I am talking about hand held microphones here, of course, and if it is on a stand adjust the stand to the correct height. These things might seem trite, but they are all necessary to make sure people can hear you. Never assume people know how to use microphones. They may need to be shown.

2. It is a good idea to ask if everyone can hear you. Don't assume that they can just because you have a microphone. People should be able to easily hear you; they should not have to work at hearing you. Why say anything at all if people can't hear you?

3. Smile

4. Don't read your speech or notes. Rehearse your speech ahead of time. Know it well enough so you do not have to constantly look at your notes.

5. Make eye contact with the audience in the four corners of the room.

6. NEVER be a monotone. Always speak with some degree of excitement or passion. If you are not excited about your topic why should you expect your audience to be.
