Short notice speeches and impromptu speechesThere are many situations in our everyday lives when we may be called upon to speak at short notice or speak immediately. You could be at work, speaking to retail staff or a bank manager. You may be speaking to a stranger at the supermarket. Wherever you are, you can practice spontaneous and short notice speaking.

Don’t panic! There are techniques which can be used in these situations to make them manageable and, in fact, enjoyable.
