Some data on public speaking

According to UCLA psychologist Albert Mehrabian's 'The Rule of Mehrabian', the audience's perception of a speech is approximately 55% dependent on body language, 35% on the vocal element (tone, intonation, etc.) and only 7% on the actual content. In a MUN conference, delegates are required to discuss issues and communicate with other countries. This is why speaking skills are such an important part of the MUN. So how could I improve my speech to make it more engaging?

Firstly, you should make eye contact with the audience during your speech to make them feel involved. At the same time, the speaker can also add a little movement to the speech to make it more vivid. However, be mindful not to distract the audience with too many gestures. Just keep the audience focused on your speech.

Secondly, your voice is also a key factor in your speech. It is best to speak in a calm and loud voice, not too high-pitched or too low. The ultimate goal is to make your speech clear to the audience, so you need to adjust the volume of your speech according to the actual factors to avoid causing discomfort to the audience. In addition to volume, tone is also a key factor. The speaker can change the tone of his or her speech slightly to enrich it with a little emotional tone, so as to bring out your emotions more directly in the audience.

Finally, you can impart a little personal touch to your speech. You can incorporate specific movements in your speech or create a tone that is uniquely yours, developing your own style, personalising your speech and generating interest and interaction with your audience.
