    I'm delivering a speech tomorrow on the UK about the government. I am a little nervous about speaking in front of 80 people, but I know that I will grow from it. I sent a copy of my speech to the event organiser. She said 'Your speech is great! I'm sure the audience will appreciate your sentiment'.

    The first part of her feedback appears really positive, but I'm not too sure of the meaning of the second part of her feedback?

    What did she mean by 'appreciate your sentiment'? Is this also positive?

    She just means they will agree with what you are saying. A little nervous is ok, just practice it and then you will realise you can do it gl.

    Practice your speech and practice with a group of people.

    Good luck

    Contrary to what the others have said (they are also quite right though), don't practice too much.

    It's important to keep it fresh.

    More important than what you actually say is the way that you say it. Be confident, be engaging and be loud and clear.
