The Secrets of The Best Public Speakers

fastcompany:

American culture places a premium on the ability to speak confidently before a crowd. Career counselors will tell you it’s a sure path to professional success. Compelling speakers can achieve positions of power and wealth.

"Think of it like a planned conversation. You know where the conversation’s going…but you’re loose enough in the moment to make it up a little bit as you go along. You want to have 80 percent of it prepared and allow 20 percent to be spontaneous.”

How celebs and politicians manage to deliver smooth and seemingly spontaneous performances

The ability to speak dynamically in public is a valuable skill to possess, but there is a greater concept that requires consideration.  It’s the ability to build a respectable and attention drawing brand.  This can be either built around a specific person, a business, a product, an event, etc.  While brands can be built on many things using a variety of different mediums, a mouthpiece that demands respect and engages its audience is especially crucial to generate visibility, provide for retention of users, and to create demand.  Without a centerpiece or a central core of well spoken individuals, it will be challenging to provide a message that people connect with and want to interact with on a deeper level.  Once you have a deeper understanding of this need, learning how celebs and politicians do it becomes ever more important.
