Here is a quick tip on how to improve your public speaking. If you choose to join Working Breakfast you will need to do a 60 second pitch each week. Tips are being posted on the website over the next few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled.
- Work on the structure. There is no point in having a wonderful, humorous introduction and then run out of time before you get to the main point you wanted to make. The rule of thirds can be a helpful guide to your 60 seconds. Spend 20 seconds on your intro. 20 seconds on what you want and 20 seconds on summarising what you want and your close.
