- Use short words; people find them easier to understand

- Use short sentences; short and to the point so it is easier for the audience to understand

- Use personal words; words such as I, me you, they, we will make a speech more direct

- Save the humor for the end; make the jokes secondary to the speed, make sure you have laid the foundation before saying jokes.
