Be sure to get a handle on these two elements because errors in these areas can ruin your delivery. To ensure you pronounce and enunciate the words in your speech accurately, always keep a dictionary and a thesaurus handy, prepare your speech in advance, record your speech, then assess your presentation for clarity.

Just in case you want to start improving your enunciation and pronunciation right away, here is a list of suggestions:
