June 1, 2010 I published the last issue (at least for a while) of Girl Talk my teen girl magazine. Since this blog was originally designed for the purpose of publishing weekly devotions for the magazine and later the magazine itself I decided to create another blog that isn’t connected to Girl Talk.

I’ll probably still publish book reviews or other items here now and again but you’ll more often find me at Trusting Him with Today. I hope you’ll stop by

What a Girl Wants to Know - Public Speaking

Help for the dreaded oral presentation

1. Know your material – it’s okay to refer to notes or cue cards but know your speech well enough that you’re able to present it without stumbling.

2. Practice, Practice, Practice – The mirror can be your best friend when practicing. Read your speech out loud, practice your gestures, pauses and inflections.

3. Make eye contact – Don’t look down at your notes the entire time. Look around make eye contact with the people you’re presenting to.

4. Engage your audience – ask a rethorical question once in a while. It will get the audience actively involved in what you’re talking about.

5. Be enthusiastic– Let your audience know that you’re passionate about what you’re presenting to them.

Great points of advice. I have never been a good public speaker (maybe in small groups)...

Love & peace,
