Speaker: Sophie Kruger

Main take-aways from this video:

  • Speak slowly for judges and to allow judges to write down all of your arguments
  • Speak slowly so you have time to think during your speech
  • Speak clearly and annunciate each word

Suggested Exercise:

  • Read a famous, historical speech out loud, focusing speaking slowly and clearly
  • Ideas for famous speeches include “I Have a Dream”  (Martin Luther King Jr.), “First Inaugural Address” (Franklin Delano Roosevelt), and “Is It a Crime for a US Citizen to Vote?” by Susan B. Anthony
