Public Speaking Coaching In Manchester Diction

 

With a speech or presentation due in a couple of weeks, you have spent your time preparing and writing your well researched topic, rephrasing words, changing key phrases and opening statements, you have ensured that the speech has an intriguing opening statement, a clear objective and a memorable summary.

With a practiced and prepared speech you step on stage. At the speech end, you realise that your orating skills have worked against you, and your expertise did not shine through. It doesn’t matter how powerful your scripting skills are, if your orating skills and your diction, don’t do the speech justice.

Powerful public speakers practice their diction, tonality and the delivery power of their voice.

Public Speaking Diction 

With a well written speech you may believe that your speech will go down well. But, unless the audiences can clearly hear each word, your well prepared speech wont hit the mark.

 

These are 3 key reasons why audiences turn off when listening to a poorly delivered speech

 

  • Nervousness speaker, lacking in confidence – people mumble on stage when feel emotionally stressed 

 

  • Talking to fast – with a lot top say in such a short period of time, the public speaker may rush to get the words out in the allocated time 

 

 

  • Poor diction – rushing words or not pronouncing words clearly can leave the audience thinking “What did they say?”

A great technique for improving your diction, to practice talking slower and to boost your confidence is to use Tongue Twisters.

 

Here is a famous example to use as a practice tool “I am the very pattern of a modern Major-General; I’ve information vegetable, animal, and mineral; I know the Kings of England, and I quote the fights historical, From Marathon to Waterloo, in order categorical; I’m very well acquainted too with matters mathematical, I understand equations, both simple and quadratical, About binomial theorem I’m teeming with a lot o’ news, With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse. I’m very good at integral and differential calculus, I know the scientific names of beings animalculous, In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral, I am the very model of a modern Major-General.”    

3 Steps to Improve Diction Prior to your Speech

 

 

Step 1 – Start by practicing your diction using tongue twisters before practicing the diction of your forthcoming speech

 

Step 2 – Start by saying the tongue twister out loud slowly, ensure each word is said clearly and that each word is crisp at the word start and end.

 

Step 3 – Once the statement is communicated clearly, repeat the tongue twister faster and faster, repeating the paragraph if a word is not said cleanly.
