Public speaking is actually a great art, and a speech that is well written and also well delivered can be exciting, stirring, and educational. All of this is why today business motivational speakers are a great asset to major conventions and conferences. Great speakers are those who know how to deliver a speech concisely and yet with great impact, distilling a message down to its essence and then putting it across with great punch.
Great public speakers can really affect the outcome of business trends and political movements; that’s how powerful great speaking really is. Barack Obama is a great speaker who put himself squarely in the public eye by delivering an impassioned speech at the Democratic Convention in 2004. That speech (and many great ones that followed) brought him eventually to The White House, where he followed in the footsteps of other great speakers, like John F. Kennedy and Franklin D. Roosevelt. Winston Churchill is another great political leader who was known for the passion and power of his speeches. His speech to the House of Parliament was significant in persuading the people of England to join with the Allies in standing up the Nazis regime during World War II. All of these men knew the power of great writing, delivered well, in an impassioned speech.
Today public speaking remains an important tool for business leaders and political leaders as well. The popularity of the “Ted” talks is one example of how important great speaking is inputting a message across. The good news is that these talks, and others, have created new interest in the power of public speaking, and is now motivating a new generation to learn to write and speak well.
