Public speaking is a part of daily life. Even if a person is not a public speaker in a large arena, a person casually speaks to an audience of one or many on a daily basis. A person can have a powerful message but the tone and delivery of that message is lost if it is done in a condescending manner. Words add value or discontent to any situation depending on the circumstances. There are a few tips on a how to deliver a message effectively.
Consider the audience who will hear the message. You should not deliver a message to all audiences the same way especially if it is a sensitive issue including stereotypes. Be brief clear and concise. Your message does not have to be long and verbose to get a point across. Be honest. Transparency is most acceptable more than trying to dance around the truth. If the audience has a level of familiarity with you, then it is easier to identify when you are not being completely honest. Utilize effective tone and inflection in your voice only as necessary. Consider the theme if it is a happy tone then your voice should reflect this mood. Practice what you are going to say ahead of time. This helps especially if you are presenting something to a larger audience. You want to make sure you practice some warm up techniques and outline some key points you would like to address.
