Alter your speed, volume, tone and pauses to reflect the mood, elements and content of your speech: Ex: Cue your introduction and conclusion by using the same tone of voice Adopt a slightly lower tone and slower speed when providing definitions and explanations Speak more quickly and raise your pitch when relating an example or humorous anecdote.
