How to improve your impromptu speech sessions

Today, I came across an old video of mine. This is about 2 years old.

How to Use Your Brain To Your Advantage?

I had given this speech as part of my Toastmasters project. Had titled it 2 States, which is a famous Bollywood movie starring Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor. However, this speech had got nothing to do with the movie or the border between states. Instead, it was about something far more important - Our brains. That's that beautiful instrument which we are meant to use for our entire life, but unfortunately hardly does anyone ever teach us about how to use it properly, isn't it? Hopefully this video will have some answers. Brain always swin
