Know the speech well enough that you don’t need to look at your notes too much. Some people memorised their speeches so they didn’t have cards, but personally, I think it’s a risk: under the pressure, you might forget your words so even if you memorise it, keep your cue cards. You don’t even have to look at them unless you forget something

Know the subject well enough that you can easily answer any questions from people.

You’re welcome! There are plenty of general public speaking tips online which would also really help for the real thing (I can’t think of anything to tell you directly, sorry ).

I actually can’t remember if I’m honest I’m really sorry. What you could do though, is write what you can, then practise it out loud and record it so you can see how long it took you but you can also listen back to it to see if you were talking too fast/too slow etc and then adjust the speech accordingly.

Not being academic doesn’t make you thick, Goldie!!! :nah: there are lots of different ways of being clever and I know for a fact that you are clever, even if you don’t see it :yep: don’t argue with me. If I say you’re clever, you’re clever :mad:
