The Power of Speech

I. Introduction:

Oral communication is a part of daily life. You speak to someone. You greet people. You express opinions. You offer information. You ask questions. You may even try to persuade someone to accept your point of view or do something. How well you verbalize your thoughts and ideas determines the impression you make on people and, ultimately, how successful you are in life.

Speaking to more than one or two people may make you nervous and uncomfortable. You may be afraid you will say or do something foolish or that you will bore your audience. These are normal concerns and, with some effort, you can overcome them. You can learn to organize and present your ideas logically and convincingly and in doing so, develop the self-confidence that will enable you to handle any speaking situation with ease. (Put some additional inputs to further discuss the topic. You may include references from any source.)
