Some of the guidelines for effective verbal communication are to speak clearly and concisely, avoid using too much technical Jargon, and speaking with confidence. Best practices for nonverbal communication include using hand gestures properly, making good eye contact, and having good posture.
Some of the things I need to consider about the verbal delivery about my speech is the careful use of Jargon. I have chosen a fairly technical topic so I need to be careful when using jargon that I don’t over use it, and that when I do choose to use a technical term, I explain it enough to get my point across. Another thing I need to be careful with is pacing. I need to make sure that I am timing the delivery of each topic well enough that certain points are given enough time compared to others. If I breeze over one point and take my time another, my speech will feel off and some points may not come across very well.
Examples of times I might pay close attention to my nonverbal communication is both during the introduction and the conclusion. Since I wont simply be relaying information, and instead will be trying to summarize the main hitting points of the content of the speech, it will be most important to use nonverbal communication to highlight those parts of my speech.
