The Gestalt of Public Speaking.
Why do you need to learn better public speaking delivery skills?
When speaking, content is king, no doubt. However, if all you have is content and no delivery skills do everyone a favor: Write up a report, hand it out and keep your seat.
Delivering a speech is a gestalt, worth more than the sum of its parts. Good content, well delivered is more powerful than the content alone flat on the page.
You will actually undermine your content with poor speaking skills. People will tune out. Worse, they will decide that your poor speaking skills are directly related to the quality of your ideas.
Learn better delivery skills to get out of your own way and let your message shine.
What are your thoughts on content and delivery?
