Public Speaking Experts – Demosthenes
SEPTEMBER 8, 2014
Public speaking expert is a title that carries tremendous weight. Demosthenes, public speaking expert of the 4 th century BC, is one of the legendary Greek orators. Some of his most famous (and my favorite) addresses of his relate to his opposition to King Phillip II of Macedon. Although he passed away in 322 BC, Demosthenes is relevant to 21 st century orators because of his dedication to practice and preparation. Demosthenes’ dream was to be a great orator, but he had speech impediments.
