Public speaking skills
Public speaking also called oratory or oration is giving speech face to face to live audience. However, due to the evolution of public speaking, it is modernly viewed as any form of speaking formally and informally between an audience and the speaker. Traditionally, public speaking was considered to be a part of the art of persuasion. The act can accomplish particular purposes including to inform, to persuade, and to entertain.
Additionally, differing methods, structures, and rules can be utilized according to the speaking situation. Public speaking was developed in Rome and Greece. Prominent thinkers from these lands influenced the development and evolutionary history of public speaking. Currently, technology continues to transform the art of public speaking through newly available technology such as videoconferencing , multimedia presentations, and other nontraditional forms.
Public speaking can serve the purpose of transmitting information , telling a story , motivating people to act or encouraging people. This type of speech is deliberately structured with three general purposes: to inform, to persuade and to entertain. Knowing when public speaking is most effective and how it is done properly are key to understanding the importance of it. Public speaking for business and commercial events is often done by professionals.
These speakers can be contracted independently, through representation by a speakers bureau , or by other means. Public speaking plays a large role in the professional world. In fact, it is believed that 70 percent of all jobs involve some form of public speaking. Although there is evidence of public speech training in ancient Egypt ,  the first known piece  on oratory, written over 2, years ago, came from ancient Greece.
This work elaborated on principles drawn from the practices and experiences of ancient Greek orators. Aristotle was one who first recorded the teachers of oratory to use definitive rules and models. His emphasis on oratory led to oration becoming an essential part of a liberal arts education during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The classical antiquity works written by the ancient Greeks capture the ways they taught and developed the art of public speaking thousands of years ago.
In classical Greece and Rome , rhetoric was the main component of composition and speech delivery, both of which were critical skills for citizens to use in public and private life. In ancient Greece, citizens spoke on their own behalf rather than having professionals, like modern lawyers, speak for them.
Any citizen who wished to succeed in court, in politics or in social life had to learn techniques of public speaking. Rhetorical tools were first taught by a group of rhetoric teachers called Sophists who were notable for teaching paying students how to speak effectively using the methods they developed.
Separately from the Sophists, Socrates , Plato and Aristotle developed their own theories of public speaking and taught these principles to students who wanted to learn skills in rhetoric. Plato and Aristotle taught these principles in schools that they founded, The Academy and The Lyceum , respectively.
Although Greece eventually lost political sovereignty, the Greek culture of training in public speaking was adopted almost identically by the Romans.
Demosthenes was a well-known orator from Athens. After his father died when he was 7, he had three legal guardians which were Aphobus, Demophon, and Theryppides. In the political rise of the Roman Republic , Roman orators copied and modified the ancient Greek techniques of public speaking.
Instruction in rhetoric developed into a full curriculum, including instruction in grammar study of the poets , preliminary exercises progymnasmata , and preparation of public speeches declamation in both forensic and deliberative genres. The Latin style of rhetoric was heavily influenced by Cicero and involved a strong emphasis on a broad education in all areas of humanistic study in the liberal arts, including philosophy.
Other areas of study included the use of wit and humor, the appeal to the listener's emotions , and the use of digressions. Oratory in the Roman empire , though less central to political life than in the days of the Republic, remained significant in law and became a big form of entertainment. Famous orators became like celebrities in ancient Rome—very wealthy and prominent members of society. The Latin style was the primary form of oration until the beginning of the 20th century.
After World War II , however, the Latin style of oration began to gradually grow out of style as the trend of ornate speaking was seen as impractical. This cultural change likely had to do with the rise of the scientific method and the emphasis on a "plain" style of speaking and writing. Even formal oratory is much less ornate today than it was in the Classical Era. Despite the shift in style, the best-known examples of strong public speaking are still studied years after their delivery.
Among these examples are:. Between 18th and 19th century USA, women were publicly banned from speaking in the courtroom, the senate floor, and the pulpit. Exceptions existed for women from the Quaker religion allowing them speak publicly in meetings of the church. Frances Wright was one of the first female public speakers of the United States, advocating equal education for both women and men through large audiences and the press.
The sisters advocated how slavery relates to women's rights and why women need equality  following disagreement with churches that did not agree with them public speaking due to being women.
In addition to figures in the United States, there are many famous international female speakers. Malala Yousafzai is a modern-day public speaker who was born in the Swat Valley in Pakistan and is an educational activist for children and women.
She continues to advocate for educational rights for children and women worldwide through the Malala Fund  with the purpose of helping girls all around the world receive 12 years of education.
Effective public speaking can be developed by joining a club such as Rostrum , Toastmasters International , Association of Speakers Clubs ASC , or Speaking Circles , in which members are assigned exercises to improve their speaking skills.
Members learn by observation and practice, and hone their skills by listening to constructive suggestions followed by new public speaking exercises. Toastmasters International is a public speaking organization with over 15, clubs worldwide and more than , members. Rostrum is another public speaking organization founded in Australia with more than clubs all over the country.
The new millennium has seen a notable increase in the number of training solutions offered in the form of video and online courses. Videos can provide actual examples of behaviors to emulate. Professional public speakers often engage in ongoing training and education to refine their craft. This may include seeking guidance to improve their speaking skills such as learning better storytelling techniques, learning how to effectively use humour as a communication tool, and continuously researching in their topic area of focus.
The fear of speaking in public, known as glossophobia  or public speaking anxiety,  is often mentioned as one of the most common phobias.
New technology has also opened different forms of public speaking that are nontraditional such as TED Talks,  which are conferences that are broadcast globally. This form of public speaking has created a wider audience base because public speaking can now reach both physical and virtual audiences. YouTube is another platform that allows public speaking to reach a larger audience. On YouTube, people can post videos of themselves. Audiences are able to watch these videos for all types of purposes.
Multimedia presentations can contain different video clips, sound effects, animation, laser pointers, remote control clickers and endless bullet points. Public speakers may use audience response systems. For large assemblies, the speaker will usually speak with the aid of a public address system or microphone and loudspeaker.
These new forms of public speaking, which can be considered nontraditional, have opened up debates about whether or not these forms of public speaking are actually public speaking. Many people consider YouTube broadcasting to not be true forms of public speaking because there is not a real, physical audience.
Others argue that public speaking is about getting a group of people together in order to educate them further regardless of how or where the audience is located [ citation needed ].
Telecommunication and videoconferencing are also forms of public speaking. David M. Fetterman of Stanford University wrote in his article Videoconferencing over the Internet : "Videoconferencing technology allows geographically disparate parties to hear and see each other usually through satellite or telephone communication systems.

По приезде группу сразу же разделили. Все они подверглись проверке на полиграф-машине, иными словами - на детекторе лжи: были тщательно проверены их родственники, изучены особенности почерка, и с каждым провели множество собеседований на всевозможные темы, включая сексуальную ориентацию и соответствующие предпочтения. Когда интервьюер спросил у Сьюзан, не занималась ли она сексом с животными, она с трудом удержалась, чтобы не выбежать из кабинета, но, так или иначе, верх взяли любопытство, перспектива работы на самом острие теории кодирования, возможность попасть во Дворец головоломок и стать членом наиболее секретного клуба в мире - Агентства национальной безопасности. Беккер внимательно слушал ее рассказ. - В самом деле спросили про секс с животными. Сьюзан пожала плечами. - Обычная проверка кандидата.
Часовой пожал плечами. - С вами хочет поговорить начальник шифровалки. Она сейчас будет. - Она? - Беккер рассмеялся. Он не заметил в АНБ ни одного существа женского пола. - Вас это смущает? - раздался у него за спиной звонкий голос. Беккер обернулся и тотчас почувствовал, что краснеет.
Стратмор только сделал вид, что звонил по телефону. Глаза Хейла расширились. Слова Сьюзан словно парализовали его, но через минуту он возобновил попытки высвободиться. - Он убьет. Я чувствую. Ведь я слишком много знаю. - Успокойся, Грег.
Рабочим местом Джаббы была платформа, с которой открывался вид на подземную сверхсекретную базу данных АНБ. Именно здесь вирус мог бы причинить наибольший ущерб, и именно здесь Джабба проводил большую часть времени. Однако в данный момент у него был перерыв и он поглощал пирог с сыром и перцем в круглосуточной столовой АНБ. Джабба собирался взять третий кусок, когда зазвонил мобильный телефон. - Говорите, - сказал он, быстро проглотив пирог.
Тело Колумба покоится здесь, в Испании.
Наверное, уплыли на уик-энд с друзьями на яхте. Беккер заметил, что на ней дорогие вещи. - И у тебя нет кредитной карточки. - Есть, но отец ее заблокировал.
- Блоки из четырех знаков, ну прямо ЭНИГМА. Директор понимающе кивнул.
