Voice is the greatest of assets humans have. Voice makes your personality and becomes your individuality as well. You are well defined by your voice. And in making presentations, voice becomes the most effective tool for you. You can mould your presentation as and when required on the base of your voice-modulations. A good voice makes explanations carry a punch and descriptions bear an impact. Planned intonations in presentations render them an emotional solidity. To achieve perfection in presentations, you can play with your voice by taking care of some simple things:
1. Place your inhalations subtly: When you speak for some time continuously, you need intakes of breath regularly to sustain yourself. But having gasps at wrong points like while you are describing something very vital, leaves a bad impression on the audience. Deciding beforehand where you will take breaths augurs well. And sometimes when you can’t control, do it but don’t reveal! You need practice for that.
2. Be calm: If you have rehearsed your presentation and know the topic well, you are confident. A confident presenter has an effective voice immersed in confidence and conviction. If you are not calm, disquiet inside can diminish the quality of your voice and your presentation can go awry.
Voice is a nature’s gift, but we can make it effective by adopting some behavioural methods and following some normal practices.
