Using your Voice, Breath and Body effectively while Presenting

A few things you should be aware of while you present:

  • Take a few relaxed breaths before you start speaking
  • Align your spine and centre your body before you start speaking
  • Avoid holding your breath when you are planning what to say next
  • Learn to make effective use of pauses. Don’t use vocal fillers like ‘Uhm, Uh’. Breathe whenever you pause
  • Avoid using long sentences that will strain your breathing. Your audience will also find it difficult to understand you
  • Speak at a pace that is not too fast or slow. Vary your pace depending on your content
  • Make yourself interesting with vocal variations, often referred to as voice modulation in India
  • Avoid wearing high heels and waist hugging clothes so that you don’t squeeze your body and breath
