Effective delivery


  • The speed at which we speak

  • When speakers speak too rapidly, the audience doesn’t have time to fully understand what is being said.

  • Speaker could also run out of breath when speaking too fast.

  • The vocal notes you hit while speaking- the highs and lows of your voice.

  • Make sure to vary your pitch so you don’t bore your audience or sound monotone (using the same rate and pitch)
