Being spontaneous takes practice!
Mark Twain said it took him about 3 weeks to write a decent impromptu speech. He was acknowledged as one of the best speakers of his day so for him to say that must have some credibility. Shame more people don't believe it and actually set aside the necessary time to prepare thoroughly!

Communicate more by saying nothing. Presentation skills.
The Bid Coach's insight:

Presenting is very different to conversation in oh so many ways, not the least of which is that when presenting there is no-one who will fill the void with words if you pause.
Why is this important?
Well, for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that you can use pauses to great effect when presenting - which is hardly ever the case when involved in conversation.

The One Word in Public Speaking That Conveys Uncertainty

Birkbeck Careers & Employability's curator insight, November 21, 2014 8:25 AM

Being an engaging speaker relies on a toolkit of traits that you need to hone and polish continually. Body language, tone and of course content are fundamentals in ensuring that you’re having impact with your delivery. Banishing the ‘um’ and the ‘err’ from your pitches or speeches is something basic that you need to get right from day one but this article suggests that there is another verbal baddie which ought to be eliminated. Using these filler words or noises creates a feeling within the audience that you lack conviction in what you’re saying and this has a big impact on the effectiveness of any presentation. If you imagine yourself in an interview scenario where you’re trying to present yourself in the best light it’s not tough to see why creating an impression of yourself as indecisive could be really damaging. Check out the article and reflect on your choice of words, perhaps this one is one you need to phase out.  Are you guilty of buying yourself thinking time with these meaningless filler words? What have you done to ensure you’re coming across at your best? Let us know.
