Saying "Sorry" during your speech - unnecessary

When you make a simple mistake while delivering a speech, just move on. You don’t have to ask ‘Sorry’ or apologize in-between. There are folks who apologize – when they forget portions of their speech, when they make grammatical errors, or when they make a mistake due to nervousness. Many times, such simple mistakes are hardly noticed by others. Apologizing during the speech “highlights” your mistakes and also affects the speech’s flow. So, the next time you make a simple mistake on stage, due to nervousness… just move on.


  1. Thanks sir, was thinking it would be rude if we do not apologize, but yes got convinced and agree too that all the audience must have not observed the mistakes. Thanks for the confidence and motivation to bury the mistake and rise up
