Becoming a Powerful Public Speaker

People fear public speaking over death. Is that shocking or what? As I coach people on becoming a more confident speaker, I often get questions on how to incorporate jokes, how much time should a speaker take to prepare and how many powerpoint slides should a speaker use.

These are all great questions. Before anyone can even answer these questions the mainpoint to keep in mind is "How to Influence Your Audience". WIIFM (What Is In It For Me - the Audience)

In the March 2008 issue of BusinessWeek, communications coach Carmine Gallo focuses on "How to Inspire People Like Obama Does". The article focuses on using rhetorical devices, exuding confident body language and dynamic vocal delivery.
