Facial expression, vocal tone and timing are some of the most important attributes to public speaking skills. Under high pressure events that involve speaking such as interviews or presentations, many are bound to make mistakes that they might not be aware of. For example, their nervousness will turn their smiles upside down, awkward pacing of speech and tone variations that betray their true intention.
