Four Part Series on Public Speaking: An Introduction

In this four part series, we will delve into tips and tricks helping you brush up on your public speaking skills. Topics will include an introduction into public speaking, preparation for your speech, the execution, and overcoming anxiety.

Public speaking is “the art of effective oral communication with an audience” as defined by Merriam-Webster Dictionary. As you may suspect, the use of the word “art” is not by chance; public speaking requires substantial practice and, when executed effectively, effects the viewer with the same degree of emotional impact any painting in the Louvre or dance on stage. Public speaking is intended to create a specific emotional impact upon a multitude of people with the goal of convincing them to agree with the orator. In other words, a strong public speaker convinces their listeners to see, and understand, their point of view.

Due to its broadly defined nature, public speaking is a skill utilized throughout many areas of one’s life at various stages of life. Some people use their public speaking skills to present an issue with a project in a meeting at work, others use it as a tool to perfect their best man speech at their brother’s wedding, while others use it as a means of income as they tour the country as an educational speaker. In our office, we commonly use our public speaking skills in negotiations, on the floor of the courtroom, at depositions, and in staff meetings discussing cases and strategy.

When faced with the opportunity to speak publicly some people get excited and impassioned while other shutter rattled with fear and anxiety. Regardless of where you fall on this spectrum, public speaking with its diversity of applications is a tool you will likely need to use at some point in your life. From leading a toast at a dinner party to speaking with clients on the phone, you want to be prepared to face your audience and convey your point in the most effective manner. Please join us next week for some helpful tips and tricks to help you prepare for your next public speaking opportunity.
