Working With Microphones

Microphones just make any speaking mistakes or tics louder and easier for your audience to detect.

Practice speaking with a microphone before your performance and record your speech. This will help you detect words you have pronounced too loudly and times when hard consonants have caused feedback with the sound system.

Voice Modulation

You modulate your voice when you change pitch, like when your voice goes up at the end of a question. 
Just like with music, its rhythm and tone can convey a meaning that may be different than the literal interpretation of your words.

Being able to modulate your voice correctly is a powerful tool.

Use Voice Modulation to Improve Your Speaking Voice

  • If you want your audience to quiet down, to be calm or to perhaps hang on your every word, speak more quietly.
  • f you want to rile up your audience, speak with a stronger voice. You can also use volume to convey your passion.
  • Try not to speak too quickly. Most audiences will have trouble following along. Instead, speak at a moderate pace. Slowing down your speech even more will emphasize each word.

Vital Tips on Voice Modulation
  • Be Loud and Clear without shouting. Don't let your voice creak while being loud.

  • Stress on Powerful Words. You can take effective pauses, stress on a certain set of words, which will help your speech sound more interactive.
  • Create a Crowd-Pleasing Speech. Connect with the audience from the start. Use tools like humour, story and experiences to attract the crowd.
  • Effective pauses build curiosity in the minds of the people listening to you.
  • Avoid Ahs and Uhms. To avoid such fillers, practise speaking a lot.
  • Sound Enthusiastic and Confident.  Do not sound lousy, monotonous or use the same variation of tone in your speech. Display enthusiasm in your words.
An audience judges the speaker...

... in the initial one and a half minute to know whether they are going to listen to him/her any further or not.

This leaves you with a small time span in which you are supposed to grab the attention of the audience.

Improve Your Public Speaking Voice
  • Slow Down when you speak. Your listeners have an opportunity to absorb and reflect on what you’re saying.
  • Use Voice Exercises to strengthen your voice.
  • Record And Listen To Your Voice. Look for ways to improve your pronunciation, your delivery, and your pacing.

Don’t make it all about you

Make it about the ideas you want to share.

Take the focus off of yourself and putting it instead onto the valuable information you are going to deliver. That way, the speech becomes an exchange of ideas and it creates a place of passion and purpose.

Don’t obsess over each word

Oftentimes, the reason that we mess up is that we start paying too much attention to the details.

When you’re speaking and you’re trying to get the point across, think about the 3 points you want to get across.  This way,  you'll focus on the outcome of what you’re trying to say rather than every word coming out of your mouth.
