Course Overview

Good Speech is a Means to an End and Not an End in Itself!

Public speaking requires more of the speaker than getting through the time allocated. We need to consider what our preferred outcome or objective is.
We have 15 seconds to make an impression and so the first considerations are around how you look. Your confidence, enthusiasm and professionalism. This will be demonstrated by:

  • eye contact
  • facial expressions
  • base position
  • arm movements
  • gestures
  • appropriate movements

 

Then the audience will consider how you sound. Are you credible, enthusiastic, professional? Included in this are:

  • pace and rate of speech
  • pitch
  • inflection
  • volume
  • articulation
  • effective pausing

You will need to consider your goals throughout which will lead to your structure.

Timetable

09:30 - 10:00 Coffee & Course Objectives
10:00 - 11:00 What is the objective of the speech?
By focusing on what our objective is and who our audience is, we will be better able to structure the speech for maximum impact. Part of our preparation should involve profiling our audience. Are they still in education, in industry, part of a social group, retired? This is important if we are to make our speech relevant to them.
