"Hi there and welcome to Vocal Power. I'm Earl Sky.
 Today I want to talk to you about how to slow down your speech when you're presenting.Now if you're nervous, obviously you're going to speed up your speech.
What happens?
Your audience doesn't understand you, and the most important thing is, they cannot digest what you're saying because you are speaking too quickly. 
1. Idea Phrasing.
 Learn to speak slowly
The best way to help you slow down your speech pattern is by speaking in ideas. Idea phrasing. 
For example, a good way to practice this is to grab some Shakespeare:
'Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears"
Stop. Pause. Move on to the next one.
'I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him. The evil that men do lives after them.The good, is often interred with their bones' 
So learn to speak in phrases, and stop. This forces you to stop. The idea behind this is, when you have to stand up and give your speech, you also will stop in the phrasing. 
So today I'm going to tell you a story. 
The weather outside could be warmer for this time of year, but unfortunately it's not. 
So learn to stop. If you have to use a script to read from. Write STOP. Put a stop sign at the end of the paragraph or the end of a sentence. This will help you slow down. 
2. Practice Proper Breathing
Learn to Speak Slowly
 Another way to slow down is to breathe. Commas, are there for a reason. Exclamation marks are there for a reason. 
STOP. BREATHE. Go on to the next thought. Go on to the next sentence.
So grab some prose, some poetry, some Shakespeare and practice this out loud. 
'Til next time, good speaking. I'm Earl Sky and that's Vocal Power for this week."

I cant stand when people who do not pace themselves when presenting. They don't speak slowly and feel the need to fit all their points into one sentence and end up sounding out of breath and out of sync....learning to speak slowly is definitely a necessary lesson to learn if one wishes to master public speaking.
