The purpose of memorizing a Talk: First know your content cold which then allows you to focus on the next level of your Talk - the delivery.
Great memorization does not mean you will look like a robot on stage. Instead, you will have command of the stage because you can focus on your performance instead of what sentence comes next.
Ideally, you'll want to have your talk firmly set in your mind at least 30 days before your engagement. Then you have time to work on your movement on stage.
There are many memorization techniques and every speaker has his/her favorites. Try out variations and you will find the one that resonates with you the best.
Having absolute command of your content is essential through memorization. Once you have your Talk available for instant recall, you can focus instead on connecting with your audience.Kymberlee
