Make a flow chart of important things to remember when public speaking (ex: public
speaking is the main bubble, then branching off could be confidence, another branch
could be body language, branching off there could be eye contact etc.)
Talk about the main points of a presentation together:
Main topics: Communication Skills (your voice how you say it is just as important
as what you say, Body language/appearance)

your presentation like a paper, practice it out loud delete things that didnt flow etc.
dont read right from what youve written, make small short notes that will help you
remember main points
Making the presentation: tell audience what youre going to tell them, then tell them,
end with reiterating what youve told them (summarize). Always ask if there are any
questions at the end.
Delivery: Speak clearly (practice!!), dont rush, make notes at when you want to pause,
change the tone of your voice for interest, make eye contact, dont face the screen,
