7 Common Public Speaking Tips You Should Ignore | Fast Company | Public Speaking: Lessons from the Greatest | Scoop.it

Lots of people dread public speaking. It’s also something most professionals will need to attempt at some point. Consequently, there’s a lot of advice out there on how to conquer your fears and engage the audience. Unfortunately, a lot of this advice will do nothing of the sort, and may make the situation worse. I asked frequent speakers for the worst advice they’ve been given. If you want to feel comfortable on stage, ignore anyone who tells you these gems....

Intellect and the Imagination: Two Poles of a Good Speech - Christopher Witt | Public Speaking: Lessons from the Greatest | Scoop.it

A good speech engages both the intellect and the imagination. Which may explain why there are are so few good speeches today, in business, in politics, and in the pulpit.

Powerful TED Talk on Overcoming the Fear of Public Speaking

Powerful TED Talk on Overcoming the Fear of Public Speaking | Public Speaking: Lessons from the Greatest | Scoop.it
Humanity's fine-tuned sense of fear served us well as a young species, giving us laser focus to avoid being eaten by competing beasts. But it's less wonderful when that same visceral, body-hijacking sense of fear kicks in in front of 20 folk-music fans at a Tuesday night open-mic. Palms sweat, hands shake, vision blurs, and the brain says RUN: it's stage fright. In this charming, tuneful little talk, Joe Kowan talks about how he conquered it.
MagneticSpeaking's insight:

I was super inspired by this. If you get nervous when presenting, this could be the most inspiring video you ever watch about public speaking.

Great Public Speakers: Lessons from fascinating communicators of our time. | Public Speaking: Lessons from the Greatest | Scoop.it

A great public speaker has a way of connecting with its audience that goes beyond good grammar and a logical train of thoughts. The intonation of voice, the rhythm and pauses, the body language, are as much a vehicle to convey beliefs or ideas as the words themselves. It is a rare talent to be born with; in fact, quite the opposite: as many great skills, it mostly depends on time, opportunity, and practice to attain them.
