5 steps to memorize a speech in less than an hour
As Jerry Seinfeld points out in his standup routine, this means the average person going to a funeral "would rather be in the casket than give the eulogy."
But public speaking doesn't have to be so scary.
Ron White, a two-time national memory champion, says when you know your speech by heart and don't have to rely on note cards or reading a slideshow, "your confidence will skyrocket."
"This also allows you to maintain eye contact, being a more dynamic and powerful speaker," he explains. "You will appear more knowledgeable to your audience as well."
White says he learned this simple five-step process for memorizing and giving speeches about 25 years ago, and he still uses it today:
