Does Obama's speaking style make him our first woman president?

The Eloquent Woman

Fear of Public Speaking? You Are Not Alone…

Matt Eventoff

I enjoy Anderson’s speaking style – he appears confident, is conversational and has great control and is masterful in his use of paralanguage while reporting. . Imagine my surprise to read that Anderson Cooper, who presents in front of millions and millions of people (indirectly) everyday, prime-time, has struggled with… a fear of public speaking ?

Speak Schmeak

TED also asks for video or audio of the speaker and for the person nominating the speaker to describe their speaking style. Speakers seem to be chosen as much for their ideas as for their speaking skills.

I spent Saturday morning attending the first Santa Barbara area TEDx event.

Hitting the brakes: When you're a speedy speaker

The Eloquent Woman

Here are five ways to hit the brakes and pace yourself during a presentation or public speaking gig: Don't speak as fast as you do in conversation. You might speak as many as 400 words a minute when you're in a lively conversation, but your speaking audience needs you to slow down to 140-160 words a minute. It takes work to develop a slower presenting style, but you'll be a much more effective speaker. Do you think you speak too fast?
