Assume someone is presenting a speech in front of a huge audience. What were the first words they spoke? "Uh…hi." That is it. That is all it takes to have verbal fillers alter your speech. The speaker continues, "Uh, but umm, like, hmm, you know, I mean, I guess "With each filler, the audience gets less clear, and the speaker grows more uneasy. By the end, both parties are relieved it is done.

Not utilizing filler words, or using them excessively, might impair the speaker's credibility. As long as you communicate properly and organically to persuade the audience to deliver your message, we may conclude that your task is beneficial and done. Training with a coach might also help you gain a reputation as a speaker. So, 98thPercentile is conducting a masterclass on Verbal Fillers for children in grades 3 to 8 on 12th December 2021. Qualified and experienced teachers will host the masterclass, followed by winning activities to analyze the children’s skills. 

Filler words break up the flow of discourse, disconnect the audience, and reduce the listener's comprehension. To become a better speaker, minimize your consumption and integrate practice sessions.
