Current Video: Pace
Talking too fast can seem just like typingwordstooclosetogether – it makes it harder to understand, doesn’t it? Listen to Chelsea offer some examples of what sounds best – and what doesn’t – when presenting.
>> CHELSEA: When I talk to you this fast, you can't understand what I'm saying, can you? That's what I thought. When you're giving your presentation, you don't have to speak in slo-mo or anything, but you do need to speak at a pace that's easy for your audience to keep up with. Giving your presentation is like telling a story, and you want everyone to be able to follow it. And if your story has a surprise ending, like if you want to save the results of your experiment until the end, cover up that part of your board with a blank sheet of paper to make the big reveal even more dramatic.
