What it takes to be a Good Public Speaker?



Hello Students,
Greetings of the Day!!

Being a good orator is not an easy job. It requires proper planning of ideas and contents, clarity of thoughts and a structured speech with an attractive beginning and end. Your speech should not be a confusing one, else your listeners will feel that you have wasted their time. Good public speaking is not any rocket science but is an art that comes through practice. Here are some basic ingredients of a good speaker.
Make Eye Contact. Eye contact is very important. It is a good idea to make eye contact with different people. Do not stare very few person throughout your speech, this would make them feel uncomfortable. You could try looking to the left, the center of the room, and the right of the room respectively.
Have a point and stick to it. If you continuously keeps on drifting from one topic to another related idea and then again to the next, your speech becomes a sort of bad poetry or misplaced object that may quickly bore the listener.
Speak clearly. Whatever content you are delivering, speak it clearly otherwise your listener can get confused and your communication will be ineffective.
Adjust your speech for your audience. A technical audience will appreciate your use of jargon and acronyms whereas a non technical or simple audience may get trouble in grasping it. Still, make sure not to sound as if you are explaining the concepts to a class of kindergarteners.
Don't use one tone the entire speech. It makes you sound very dry, dull, and boring as a speaker and personality wise. It makes you a much better speaker when you raise your voice a bit here and there.
Be honest. Remember the story of the boy who cried, "Wolf”. You can befool your audience only once but not always so mention and quote the confirmed and true facts in your speech.
Use your hands! Nothing is worse than a speaker with his hands in his pocket or his hands just sitting by his side.

You can not be a renowned speaker in one day. It is an art that have to be practiced continuously.
