Do you get instant sweaty palms like we do when you have to give impromptu remarks or a last-minute presentation?
Public speaking can be absolutely terrifying—especially when there’s little or no time to prepare. We’ve found some useful tips for making off-the-cuff remarks a little less daunting at Harvard Business Review’s blog. These should also work well for any occasion where you have to say something and are not sure how to say it. The gist?
- Jot down a quick structure
- Start with the punchline
- Acknowledge your audience
- Memorize what to say–not how to say it
- Keep it brief
Remember these and we’re sure you’ll kill it.
