Contrary to popular belief, projecting your voice does not mean shouting . When you project , you simply raise the volume of your natural speaking voice without losing control of it (that’s when it becomes “shouting” ). To find out the difference between projecting and shouting ,you can think of the difference between talking to someone in a noisy restaurant, and calling your brother in from the backyard.
You must always project while giving a speech , even if you are presenting in a small room. During the firt minute of speaking , watch your audience members’ faces (especially the ones in the back row) carefully to see if they look confused . If you notice that they are not paying attention from the very start , stop yourself and ask if everyone can hear you. But if you are using a microphone , speak at normal volume , but a little more slowly and clearly.
