Paper leads to Problems!

  • If you use sheets of paper to help you remember a speech it will give you problems:

    • You will be tempted to read the speech word for word and will sound boring and stilted

    • Words may 'swim' in front of you and you might lose your place and disrupt the flow of the speech

    • Papers can get out of order and you could drop sheets

    • You will concentrate on reading rather than delivering

  • Use postcards as prompt cards to avoid all of
    these problems
