Being clear, concise, organized, and engaging in your public speaking is essential. How are you planning based upon your purpose, audience, and focus? What value do you bring through your knowledge, experience, and credibility? How are you leading with effective language, tone, and nonverbal expression? How are you inspiring your audience to think, understand, and engage? With a focus on your introduction, key points, and closing with a Call to Action for next steps, you can develop engaging and purposeful messages to compete in a global economy and achieve the results you desire.
