Resist time pressure
Speak when you are ready to speak, not when you think others expect you to speak, do not be rushed into speaking.
Release and push out residual air
By releasing and pushing out residual air, your diaphragm is starting of at its relaxed position thus creating a space and providing a springboard effect which allows a full and fast inhalation of air.
Centre and clarify

Start speaking at the transition of the inhalation of air and the releasing of air, there must not be any stopping or hesitation, it must be a continuous transition.
Assertive first sound
To reduce fear and freezing, the first sound must be hit assertively or aggressively, this also overcomes any tendency to hold back.
Keep Moving forward
Stuttering is the act of holding back, by keeping moving forward you maintain the continuous motion of your diaphragm.
Deep and breathy tone
This keeps the speaking process down in your chest away from the vocal chords and allows more air to flow over your articulators.
Articulate and enunciate
Slowing down to produce clear sounds and pronouncing each word correctly enables your listener to understand what you are saying.
Release residual air
Release any residual air left after speaking.
