Talk more slowly and deliberately. It is not necessary to speak quickly and at length. The less you say the better. Rambling on will only create problems because inevitably your mouth will go on faster than your brain and you'll end up saying something you will regret. The "strong silent type" definitely rings clear here. Speaking in a calm voice demonstrates confidence. It shows that you are not concerned that someone is going to cut you off and run the show. Speaking less frequently places more importance on fewer words so be sure to select them carefully.
