INTRODUCTION
The art of public speaking goes hand in hand with ‘The Art of Storytelling’ workshop I previously presented. Although many principles in these two workshops will overlap, it is important to make a distinction between the two. Storytelling is focused primarily on content; the secrets of creating a good story. Whilst storytelling is, of course, vital for public speaking, the emphasis of this workshop will be on the techniques used to deliver your story so that people will actually listen. 


DEFINITION
Public speaking (also as referred to as oratory) is “the process or act of performing a presentation or speech focused around an individual speaking directly to a live audience in a structured, deliberate manner in order to inform, influence, or entertain them”.


THE GREATEST QUOTES ABOUT PUBLIC SPEAKING AND THE LESSONS THEY CAN TEACH US

  1. “Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you’ve got to say, and say it hot.” D. H. Lawrence
     
  2. “If you can’t write your message in a sentence, you can’t say it in an hour.” Dianna Booher
     
  3. “There are always three speeches, for every one you actually gave. The one you practiced, the one you gave, and the one you wish you gave.” Dale Carnegie
     
  4. “It usually takes me more than three weeks to prepare a good impromptu speech.” Mark Twain
     
  5. “Oratory is the power to talk people out of their sober and natural opinions.” Joseph Chatfield
     
  6. “He who wants to persuade should put his trust not in the right argument, but in the right word. The power of sound has always been greater than the power of sense.” Joseph Conrad
     
  7. “If you don’t know what you want to achieve in your presentation your audience never will.” Harvey Diamond
     
  8. “Best way to conquer stage fright is to know what you’re talking about.” Michael H Mescon
     
  9. “There are only two types of speakers in the world. 1. The nervous and 2. Liars.” Mark Twain
     
  10. “No one ever complains about a speech being too short!” Ira Hayes
     
  11. “90% of how well the talk will go is determined before the speaker steps on the platform.” Somers White
     
  12. “It takes one hour of preparation for each minute of presentation time.” Wayne Burgraff
     
  13. “They may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” Carl W. Buechner
     
  14. “Words have incredible power. They can make people’s hearts soar, or they can make people’s hearts sore.” Dr. Mardy Grothe
     
  15. “The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.” Mark Twain
     

WHY IS PUBLIC SPEAKING IMPORTANT
Public speaking is a way to express yourself. Whether you are giving a speech at your best friend’s wedding or making an important presentation for work, how your audience receives you can be the difference between success and failure. Many people feel that they lack the confidence to do any public speaking at all. Maybe this is OK and these people can take comfort in the fact that they are good at other things. But maybe it is a missed opportunity to fully express how much love you have for your friend on their wedding day or maybe it is holding you back from progressing in your chosen career.
