03:42

Homework

1. What percentage of speakers have you seen in the last year who were really boring?

2. What do you have planned for you next speech that you know isn't going to be boring for your audience?

09:43

Homework

OK, this is the part you are going to hate, but it's the most important part of this entire course. You need to practice a presentation - any presentation on any topic - on video. You can be alone in your bedroom or your office and recording on your cellphone or webcam, but you absolutely must record yourself speaking. Skipping this step of recording yourself is not an option. It is a complete waste of time to just talk your speech out loud or to speak to a mirror. You must record on video!

After you have recorded your presentation you must review the video and take notes on what you like and don't like.

Next, you must record your speech again. This time, do more of what you liked in the previous presentation and less of what you didn't like. Review this video.

Repeat the process until you are happy that you look and sound your very best.

03:15

Homework

Create a one-page cheat sheet for your speaking notes. Have no more than five key points. Limit each point to three words or less.

03:43

Homework

Make a list of places where you could speak more often. This could include the following: asking a question in a meeting, speaking out at a PTA meeting, offering to give out an award at your child's Little League banquet, or calling into a talk radio show.

02:47

Homework

Stop telling yourself and others that you fear public speaking and hate public speaking!!

02:39
