Getting technical

Fellow speaker,

Speech coach Jeremy Donovan suggests three steps for testing your technical speech:
  1. Practice - give your speech to many different audiences and make sure they understand you
  2. Metaphor - use a visual metaphor that helps the audience see and understand your point (e.g., "It's like a traffic jam on the highway."
  3. Emotion - uncover the emotions in the technical description
