Impromptu Speaking Challenge

Everyone knows that practice makes perfect – and everyone loves a good challenge! Speaking well “Off-The-Cuff” with little time to research or prepare is terrifying for many. But with a little guidance, and a lot of practice, you can think clearly and speak with confidence. Impromptu speaking is perfect to practice – you can do it anywhere and it only takes a few minutes!

If you are a beginner, browse through our blog for some fantastic tips and tricks on breathing, correct posture and speech structure. Make sure you are in a comfortable place, perhaps at the dinner table with a small audience or looking at yourself in your bathroom mirror. Pick the topic you’ll speak on, take a breath and repeat the topic once outloud. Give yourself between 5 – 8 minutes to deliver the speech and remember to include an opening, closing and three main points.
