The main problem while delivering a speech is that one is not able to express their views due to less command of the language. It starts to become depressing when you have so many good points to speak on but you are not able to do so because you can't decide which will be the most appropriate word to use and as a result you get stuck. Having less command of a language will make one stutter in between a speech which makes a speech unnecessarily long and boring. Therefore it is really important that you should have a strong command of the language in which you are about to speak. This seems difficult and may take time but results will be really fruitful.

I bet this will be fascinating. Thus, having good and appropriate points in your speech is a must to build credibility.
3. Keep your audience enthusiastic
Don't make your speech sound boring and too long. Many people do not realize the importance of short and beautiful speeches. It is a pure myth that delivering a long speech is good. Try to keep your speech short (not too short) and to the point. One should try to add some humor in his or her speech to keep the audience enthusiastic. Too much formal speech is not welcomed by many.
4. Keep yourself motivated
It is not good to overthink that no one likes your speech. One cannot definitely make out by seeing the far away faces of the audience. If the speaker lacks enthusiasm and motivation, then the same can happen to the speech he or she is delivering. Therefore it is really important that you keep yourself motivated and enthusiastic the whole time.
Building credibility as a speaker may seem difficult at first, but once we are able to do that, it will prove to be more fruitful than we can imagine. Also, not to deny the fact that we will feel encouraged and motivated once we get praised for our work. Good speeches have the power to attract people and so is beautifully delivering it.
