Then wrapping it up is easy: Just summarize what you've said, and perhaps leave them with a memorable quote or anecdote.  With the heart and soul of what you have to say firmly in place—and even some of the words you will use running through your mind already—choosing an appropriate opening will be easier.  It's not a separate performance element, to be executed with a flourish merely for its own sake. Your Turn Let's start in a low­key, nonthreatening manner—with a planned presentation to just one person instead of to an audience.

Page 33 Now put the notebook away.  I think you'll see quite a difference!  Your vocal cords are simply muscles, and by keeping them toned and using them correctly, a wide range of sounds becomes possible.  The more breath you have, the better your sound will be.  Crying, cooing, speaking.  Finally, the tongue and jaw shape the sound waves into words.  We adults need to learn to breathe again like we did when we were babies, for diaphragmatic breathing is the foundation of good sound. Page 34 The Relaxation Response As it happens, diaphragmatic breathing is also the key to overcoming the shakes, the jitters, the wobblies,—all the myriad responses to fear that our bodies have.

It belongs to you, and no one else.  Produced carelessly, it can detract from what you have to say and even undermine you.  That voice is within you now. It just needs to be set free and kept healthy.  To feel the strength and fearlessness that come with the free flow of your own sound.  There is a wide range of sound you can explore.  You will learn to relax, to breathe properly, and to produce a pleasing, resonant sound.  The relaxation, breathing, and vocal exercises you will learn in this step form the foundation for the work you will do in the next six steps.
