Persuasive Speaking
  • Body Language – posture is important…stand up straight and it is completely acceptable to talk with your hands
  • Pronunciation – it is very important to annunciate each word and to avoid using slang and saying “you know”
  • Pitch – refers to the highs and lows of your voice tone
  • Speed – don’t talk to fast and don’t talk to slow
  • Pauses – uses pauses in your speech to emphasize certain important points…this is critical
  • Variance – example – starting your speech with a slow, low tone to emphasize what your saying, then switch to a more rapid, higher tone to hammer home your main point of the speech
  • Volume – very important….don’t scream all the way through it and don’t talk too quietly. Apply changes to your volume to reflect different main points of your speech
