If you can’t communicate, you’re giving up your potential!

One of the world's most successful people, Warren Buffet, said that a public speaking course became his most important degree. And his advice to young people was this: "You’ve got to be able to communicate in life and it’s enormously important. If you can’t communicate and talk to other people and get across your ideas, you’re giving up your potential.”

Public speaking is learnable. Great speakers keep their message simple, easy and relevant. They will help the listener understand, relate to, and remember a message better. And how do they do this? They do this by using verbal and non verbal queues: smiling, animated voices, hand and facial gestures; by using metophors, analogies, and stories to convey confidence.

David JP Phillips has spent many years studying thousands of speakers of varying abilities in public speaking and put together 110 skills of great public speaker . It may serve young people in their careers, to know these well.

Learn by practicing

Public speaking may be learnt like everything else: by practicing. And you don't need to attend a 4 year education or a degree to develop these skills.

You need only 4 things:

  • A keen interest to learn the skills
  • Experts to learn from and toastmaster clubs to learn at
  • A suitable amount of time for you to learn them well
  • A peer group of similarly interested individuals
