What Diana Ross said on American Idol

When Diana Ross was on American Idol she said to one of the contestants, "You must pronunciate and project." This is the same advice I give my clients who come to me for effective public speaking skills!

When you pronunciate your words, people will hear you easily and not have to struggle to understand what you are saying. Plus, there is no room for misinterpretation.

When you project, you will allow your entire audience to hear you without straining your voice. Imagine your voice forming a line out of the center of your lips and your voice is following it to the very back of the room. This will help you to project rather than shout.
