I delivered my Best Man speech last night at a wedding and received numerous well done around the way I delivered it.
I was told that my rate of speech was great (didn’t rush and had minimal fillers, I had my wife count them 😁) and I was able to emphasize words and articulate well to bring the audience in and get my point across. I think I nailed the difference between up speak and emphasize.
All of your training has really paid off. I also felt the most confident ever in giving this speech with all the structure we went through.
