Simply understanding that, when preparing for a presentation, it is ineffective to simply write down and memorise your content is a good first step in delivering effective oral presentations. Learn the skills necessary to speak extempore, reinventing the words as you go along. Avoid filler words that your audience is likely to notice and be irritated by in favour of creating thinking time during your pitch that signifies that you are choosing your words carefully rather than battling a lack of preparedness. Use your voice for maximum impact, including sincerity and credibility that will affect how your audience responds to you and your message.
