In This Course You Will Learn How To
Communicate in front of an audience. Some of the common goals of public speaking are to give an effective speech, engage listeners, and motivate people toward a common goal. With public speaking training, you can learn to win over detractors, effectively pass on your knowledge, and keep people interested in what you have to say.

What is public speaking?
Public speaking refers to giving a verbal presentation or speech before a live audience. This can include presenting findings for work, selling people on a new product, giving a speech in front of an audience, or teaching a class. In some instances, public speaking also involves using visuals such as electronic slideshows to supplement the presentation. This can add to the experience and make it easier for the audience to follow along. Public speaking differs from other forms of presentation like posting a video online. Whereas an online presentation is always accessible and isn’t necessarily performed live, a public speech occurs at a specific place and time. The speaker should be able to clearly communicate their point, vary their cadence and tone, and engage with the audience to be effective.

What are the qualities of a public speaker?
The speaker should be able to clearly communicate their point, vary their cadence and tone, and engage with the audience to be effective.
Five essential qualities of a public speaker include confidence, passion, self-awareness, authenticity, and audience engagement. When a public speaker is confident, the audience is more likely to believe what they have to say and consider them more knowledgeable. When they exude passion or enthusiasm, the audience is more likely to feel it too, making them more likely to pay attention and listen. Self-awareness refers to the speaker’s ability to appear humble, relatable, and aware of their own strengths as a speaker. For instance, if the person giving a speech is funny, they should use this aspect in their presentation. Authenticity is important, as audiences may be able to spot someone putting on an act — this can make the speaker seem fake or untrustworthy. Finally, audience engagement is key. Speakers can engage with the audience through humor, storytelling, interaction, or many other techniques.
