Ever feel jealous when watching people speak on screen? Ever wondered how they got perfect? Well, there’s a small number of rules that you can follow, and if you do, well, you won’t become a pro immediately, but you will sound a whole lot better and that, in turn, will make you feel more at ease in front of a camera. You see, it’s a virtuous circle: the better you feel, the better you look, and so on.
Ever fallen asleep while someone else made a speech? Chances are that person was reading from a script. That’s never a good idea. Make it a habit to speak from as few notes as you can. That way you’ll sound spontaneous. If you have to speak from a script, don’t just read it, but sing it. Be passionate about what you have to say and deliver it in a way that will make it easy for people to understand what you want them to know. If you find it difficult being passionate, then at least make sure people don’t fall asleep while you speak. Pick out the important terms in your script and mark them with an accent. Insert columns to mark pauses immediately before and after important messages, then underline the message.
