EX­PRESS YOUR­SELF CON­FI­DENTLY

Simply Her (Singapore) - - SimplyHer is 10! -

Ban­ish the jit­ters when you give a speech or make a pre­sen­ta­tion, with th­ese tips from Preetha Damo, co-di­rec­tor of tal­ent man­age­ment agency Voices For Hire.

Have a script – but don’t mem­o­rise it. A script helps you to or­gan­ise your thoughts, but mem­o­ris­ing it will make you sound bor­ing and re­hearsed, says Preetha.

Prac­tise a lot. Re­hearse your speech aloud in dif­fer­ent ways, in front of a mir­ror, to give you an idea of how you look and sound to your au­di­ence.

Stay steady. If a sit­u­a­tion catches youu off guard, make sure your voice re­main­sns strong and pow­er­ful.

Take the lead. Asian au­di­ences are shy. So if you want them to raise se their hands in re­sponse to your ques­tion,on, raise yours as you ask.
