Written on February 14, 2019 by Campus Life in Professional

On Tuesday 5 February, Glaxton E. Robinson hosted IE Public Speaking Club’s 11th workshop on Mastering Your Public Speech. This session was an essential overview of key points of personal speech following a very successful Club Fair hosted by IEs Campus Life on Monday, 4 February.

There are several pointers to keep in mind when giving a presentation, and according to Dr. Albert Mehrabian’s 7-38-55% Rule, the three elements of personal communication are the spoken word; voice and tone; and body language.

Your vocal variety is vast, ranging from volume, diction, rate, pitch and tone. Being able to utilize these tools of the trade are of utmost importance when keeping your audience engaged, but more so, being able to deliver a sincere and heartfelt presentation.

When focusing on your body, there are three key points to always keep in mind: position, posture and movement. These are essential parts of a presentation as it allows you to engage with your audience and show what it is you are trying to say.

As with everything that is important, practice makes perfect. The IE Public Speaking Club hosts both impromptu and prepared speech formats to allow its members to practice these points of interest covering several different topics.
