Tips For Toasters: Cultivate Your Style

In the weeks before making your speech, notice your speech patterns when you have something interesting to say. Notice your speech patterns when you are holding the interest of another person.

Cultivate those styles, and you’ll be a hit (but don’t over-do it.)
