Transcript

  • 1. Public Speaking How to prepare and give a talk
  • 2. What I want to say is, er… <ul><li>First task: decide what you want to communicate, and to whom! </li></ul><ul><li>What are your main points? </li></ul><ul><li>To whom are you presenting? </li></ul><ul><li>What do you want people to remember after they hear you talk? </li></ul>
  • 3. Choosing your points <ul><li>Sometimes less is better </li></ul><ul><li>Be very clear and specific… “tobacco is bad” versus “tobacco kills thousands of Taiwanese and thus we need tobacco control law” </li></ul><ul><li>Use your speech to emphasize your main points, not to parade everything you know on the subject! </li></ul>
  • 4. Body of speech <ul><li>Introduction: the problem about which you will talk </li></ul><ul><li>Body: main points, with explanation, specifics, details, stories… </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusion: highlight main points again </li></ul>
  • 5. Use (but don’t abuse) repetition <ul><li>Important to repeat your main points </li></ul><ul><li>Better to restate them in slightly different terms </li></ul><ul><li>Use the rest of your time to explain or describe or highlight your main points </li></ul><ul><li>Return to main points at end </li></ul>
  • 6. A few hints <ul><li>Prepare your speech in advance—depending on your style, either the whole speech or just an outline (often best to speak informally following an outline, rather than reading or reciting a prepared speech) </li></ul><ul><li>Preparation! </li></ul><ul><li>Practice! </li></ul>
  • 7. It’s not just what you say… <ul><li>Look at the audience </li></ul><ul><li>Speak slowly…but not sllllllllloooooooooowly </li></ul><ul><li>Speak clearly </li></ul><ul><li>Use visuals </li></ul><ul><li>Try to tell (short and to the point) stories </li></ul><ul><li>If possible, engage your audience— “remember when”, “have you ever…” etc. </li></ul>
