What to Expect for Your Speech Consultation

Meeting with a Speech Consultant is a great way to improve your speech performance.  For your consultation:

  • Bring your assignment sheet, if you have one, and any details about the assignment your professor has provided
  • Be prepared to deliver a draft version of your speech
  • Be ready to engage with the consultant in a conversation about the strengths of your speech and the ways you can improve it
  • Consider videotaping your speech–this is the most powerful single tool for speech improvement
  • Be ready to make changes to your speech to improve your overall effectiveness as a speaker
