It’s about a week or so before our public speaking rounds begin, so here are some resources to help you plan and practice your speech:
- 5 Phrases You Never Want to Hear in a Presentation by BenYoskovitz — the article also offers ‘four Ps of Presentations’
- Ethos, Pathos, Logos: 3 Pillars of Public Speaking by Andrew Dlugan — a great article that links rhetoric to public speaking, written by a U of S College of Engineering grad!
- Make Better Presentations – The Anatomy of a Good Speech by Chris Brogan — this article includes tips on WIFM, speech structure, and offers links to inspirational speakers to check out.
- and finally, check out this TEDxFlanders talk on public speaking by Lars Sudmann
If you’re still looking for more resources as you prepare for your speech, feel free to check out the class blog for RCM 401: Oral Rhetoric — there’s even more links/videos available over there!
