Presentation Tip: When you have to speak to a group remember to vary your cadence, especially when doing a rehearsed speech. Cadence is the beat. Think of a metronome. It has an even cadence. If you speak this way, you'll put your audience to sleep. Try this when speaking, talk normal, then speed up a little and then slow down to emphasize something. BUT, don't create a new pattern of this...remember you need to vary!
