Speaking tips from Basil Venitis, Ph.D.
A keynote speech usually lasts an hour, corresponding to a transcript of fifteen regular type pages. The speaker must have a good hook, walk the talk with a powerful presence, entertain, and reach the audience.
He must tell them what he is going to talk about, give an inspirational oration with passion, and summarize.
Standing ovation is the goal. The audience wants an experience, a transformation, not just information. The speaker must tune in, establish rapport, connect, have a dynamic theme, tell stories, show humor, create a dialogue, use eye contact and gestures, master silence, and conclude with a dynamic urge to action.
The best speeches are extempore, prepared but delivered without notes. Impromptu speeches are not prepared.
Use your arms naturally to illustrate what you are saying. Extend your arm periodically, bridging the gap between you and your audience, to reach out with your hand in handshake position.
Kinesthetic speakers feed an audience’s hunger to experience a presentation on a physical, as well as an intellectual, level.
Kinesthetic speakers create powerful nonverbal messages that reinforce their verbal ones.
By generating kinesthetic, aural, and visual stimuli, kinesthetic speakers create a rich sensory experience for their audiences.
Whenever effective public speakers end a sentence or phrase, they usually pause. This gives listeners time to absorb their words. When I pause, I use the time to make eye contact with individuals in the audience. I also use the pause to choose precisely what I will say next, based on how the audience is following my presentation.
