Timing is Everything

This is so true of speech. You have to know when you speak quickly, when to hold words longer, when you make sounds longer and when to make them shorter. You can plan when to pause strategically and consciously choose how long to look at a listener before looking away. Play with your timing, get some feedback, and work on it. Once your timing is “spot on”, everyone will understand you better and it will be easier to captivate the room.
