Slow it Down: A Tip from Ellyn Wulfe of efactor consulting

I was a fast talker. In 7th grade, one of my teachers announced to my entire class that “Ellyn Wulfe had a mouth like a blender on high speed.” Even my grandmother pleaded with me constantly to “slow down, I can’t keep up.”

My impetus to change my ways came in Middle School. I wanted to compete in public speaking tournaments and knew I needed to slow it way down to succeed. It took a lot of work, but I became a reformed fast talker.

The best speakers mix up their vocal pace or tempo to keep it conversational and interesting. For those of us who struggle with the “slowing down portion,” this video shares three tips I personally use and share with my efactor clients. I hope you enjoy.
