Prof. F's two cents:
Use an extemporaneous style of speaking
Why?
It helps you be conversational
You connect more with the audience
It's more personal
You'll be more memorable
Don't
forget...

To think of your surroundings
Will you be standing behind a podium?
Will you have a microphone?
Will there be computer access?
How big is the room?
