Transcript of Public Speaking 101

A Public Speaker is a person that mostly speaks out what the audience wants to hear, feel, touch and think.

The best speaker is the one who can relate mostly to the people he/she is speaking to and they can feel at ease when discussing ideas & thoughts about the subject matter or even sometimes outside of the subjects even.

Public Speaking 101
The Big Fat Lie
"If I missed all my skills and I have been asked to choose only one skill to have; I would choose Public Speaking. Because by having it, I would regain all other skills or at least; I would influence people to support me"

Different Type of Speeches
Some Types of speeches:
Occasion Speeches

Based on the speech type, the goals and the details are determined.

Speeches Basic Tips

Design your speech and divide it into main points, each main point shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.

Each point is related to the topic (I determine what I will deliver and I let the audience know what they expect from me)

Don’t give boring stuff (Ex: anything that’s known, old, traditional is boring)

Informative Speeches
Use one of the organizing techniques for a better delivery (to be explained in details):

The Chain/Circular Method: Giving a piece of info then relating it with another piece … etc.

The Simple Method: Giving a simple piece of info, then go into details in the same piece.

Applying New Policy

How Can we Persuade an audience?

Using people’s trust in you (Ex: fathers, teachers)

Emotional/spiritual influence

Logic (The least used one)

Emotion: Focus on something that people react with, you don’t need a lot of evidences or examples, you only need one strong emotional example

Earning Trust: In order to earn the audience’s trust, you should start by clarifying that you are one of them.

Don't (s)
The question and the answer are the same; the answer is inside the question (ex: Would you prefer that he leads us despite his weakness?)

Claiming without a proof

False Comparison; (Two topics that are irrelevant to each other but have something in common and don’t generalize)
