WHEN you speak in public be thoroughly prepared, begin slowly, speak distinctly, proceed logically, and end promptly. Be modest, direct, conversational, sincere, earnest, and uniformly courteous.

Observe your pauses, suit the action to the word, look your audience in the eyes, and make yourself interesting. Speak deliberately, be yourself at your best, keep to your subject and the facts. Favor the deep tones of your voice, and breathe from the abdomen. Depend upon the sincerity of your effort to drive your thought home. Maintain an attitude of uniform mental poise

Lead your audience to a high level of thought and purpose. Let the truth and intensity of your message carry conviction and persuasion to your hearers.
