Top tips

  • Make sure you write your speech with plenty of time to practice. You may want to recite it in the mirror at home or to your friends or family. You may also want to time it if your presentation has a time limit.
  • Write cue cards with key points to keep you on track during your talk.
  • The more public speaking you do, the easier it becomes. Volunteer for speaking events at school or in your community and show your confidence and dedication to animals.
