4. Avoid Repeatability, unless required so.

5. Linkage :

* Don't put two opposite faces of coin at a same time.
* Deliver in a structured & planned way.

6. Globalization & Localization :

* Try to explain the broader aspects but not on the cost of local values.
* Aggregation of local values should result into global and broader aspects.

7. Style of Expressing :

* Control various speech parameters like pitch, tone, intensity etc. according to the environment.
* Don't be too fast or too slow.
* Light Humour at the right time is always accepted.
* Look straight & forward. Keep a light smile on your face.
* Avoid using words that show arrogance.
* Feel what you say.
* Avoid being too formal, be natural and practical.

8. Know & Analyze your audiences.

9. Do a good Homework.

10. Dress Properly :

* Be neat, clean, ironed and polished irrespective of the fact that you have dressed up formally or informally.
