When Speaking, Study Others and Improve

Note: The next few snippets are offered from the position of listening to presenters on radio or viewing them on television. There are of course parallels to be observed and appreciated in a live audience context.


When watching television or listening to the radio, listen intently to what is said and how the presenter comes across on the screen. Consider his or her speech from the viewpoints of pitch, rhythm, tone and intonation. Does the voice catch on and engaged you or is style a bit of a turn off. The way in which vocal qualities engage (or disengage) listeners is every so important.

Think about what you are hearing and make mental notes about the example this presenter or speaker is offering. To study others can help in reflecting upon the need for personal awareness and self improvement.
