Bob Bevard believes that you need to be comfortable to be a good speaker — comfortable with yourself, your clothes, your expertise and information, and comfortable with the room in which you are speaking. In this episode, he talks about how to achieve this level of comfort, as well as several other keys to effective speaking.
Bob Bevard’s Big Tip: Learn how to modulate your voice. “I absolutely believe that you can make a good voice better,” he said. “Think about the lower ranges and tones.” Pay attention to how you breathe and be sure to use vocal variety.
