Practice Pronunciation Prior to Presenting (Say That Five Times Fast!) 550 375 I Need A Speaker

By Tricia Richards-Service

I have attended far too many presentations during which a speaker didn’t take the time to learn the correct pronunciation of terminology or names.

Emcees have hesitated when introducing a main speaker, stumbling over the keynoter’s name.

Speakers have unsuccessfully tried – multiple times in front of their audience – to properly say an unfamiliar term.

Today’s advice is simple: Learn the pronunciation of unfamiliar words and names, and practice often before you speak. By doing so, you’ll appear well prepared, add to your credibility, and show respect for others.
