Public Speaking Course:
Learn Public Speaking Material Easily
In my public speaking course, you will learn about the use of bits in your
presentation. A bit means that you take a chunk of your presentation material
and relate it to a visual or outline so it makes it easy for you to memorize.
Each point then flows along naturally from one to the other so you can deliver
the information without looking at your notes. Public speakers use this
bits in order to deliver long presentations to the audience without the using
My public speaking course teaches you that to have good speaking skills means
you must practice and prepare before your presentation.

Not being dependent on your notes has several advantages. When you stand
before a group and speak without using notes your credibility automatically

by the wind when outdoors.
Using bits has another big advantage that involves time. We are all very busy
people. It's hard to find a spare hour or day to practice your presentation for
an upcoming program. Bits can be practiced when you have a spare few minutes, a
bit of time here and there.
You will be more likely to practice your material (and we all need practice)
if you can practice a three or five-minute bit rather than the entire

"A bit of honey goes a long, long way."

your speech, bit by bit, it will go a long way on your road to success.
