Public speaking is the process of speaking to an audience in a deliberate way so that you inform, influence, or entertain. The ability to communicate effectively is a critical skill in today’s workplace.
Potential employers are looking for employees who have a variety of general skills and abilities. Transferable skills, such as interpersonal communications, organizational, analytical and problem-solving abilities, can be applied to many different jobs. Effective public speaking occurs when a speaker is well organized and confident to present the substance of the speech to an audience.
The main idea of your speech is referred to as the thesis. This is often one sentence that uses specific language, a single idea, and is audience centered. The main body of your speech must be focused upon the thesis or main topic. Reading from a prepared speech is a formal way to deliver your message. This is also viewed as effective when your desire is to control your speech content. In this instance, the speaker must be careful to not jeopardize spontaneity and conversational elements.
It is believed that we enjoy speakers who know their topic and can demonstrate energy, vigor, and excitement. Competent public speakers seek to be perceived as dynamic. It is important to show a genuine interest in your topic and audience. By being authentic and real, you will convey your dynamism. One the greatest fears that many people have is speaking in public. Is helps to allow that nervousness to heighten your sense of audience and your topic. Through practicing your gestures, intonation, expression and movements you will add interest to your talk and gain confidence in your ability to deliver.
