Brilliant Speaking
The video really addresses many of the facets that have been highlighted in our readings. It addresses that the qualities of a successful speaker of a small group are also the same qualities that are found in a speaker of large crowds. These qualities are needed in the workplace, and can help establish positive communication in the work team. Speaking is our primary method of communication when in person. So the most important part of communication is getting the message across. The video addresses how many people have a terrible fear of public speaking. The video claims that many people fear public speaking over death itself. I have a very hard time believing that, since a person could easily exaggerate their phobia. One of the practices that would be most relevant to my experience and fears would be to remember to make eye contact with the audience, and smile more. I have a terrible time doing this and I know it. Another great point that was given was to check out your surroundings before you give our speech. This will help you feel more comfortable.
If I was to give advice to someone speaking, I would tell them that the crowd is only human, and that the people came there to listen. So basically be themselves and relax. The video also makes a point that it helps to turn the nervousness into excitement. While I have not done that personally I would be very interested to find out if it works out. Another piece of advice I would give someone would be to know your audience. Doing your best to empathize with the audience will also help you be a successful speaker. The video talks about how the audience can only handle a limited amount of information, but can take limitless amounts of emotional energy and motivation. The video suggests that you capitalize on this…...

...various sense of preposition over. He viewed SP as revealing the spatial relation between one object in focus, called the figure, and the one out of focus called the ground. A network model is carried out by Lakoff. He intent to find out the most foundational meaning of over and regard is as its primary sense. In the network, all the other senses have less or more relation with the primary sense. Lakoff gave specific examples for very conceptual categories in the radial structured network. In his study, Lakoff used the Full Specification to category distinct but related structures at a rather elaborated level. Every distinct image schema represents a sense, while between each image schema there are different kinds of link and transformation. Speaking from the Cognitive Grammar, the terms of trajectory (TR) and Landmark (LM) derive from figure-ground relations. Lakoff explains that the distinct meaning in the semantic network related with over accounts for the various dimensionality of LM. Lakoff(1987 ) takes 2 sentences below as the example: (1) The helicopter hovered over the ocean. (2) The humming bird hovered over the flower In the sentence (1) over shows the spatial relation between a TR the helicopter, and a LM, the ocean, is extended. In the sentence (2) the relationship between TR, the humming bird, and LM, the flower, is not extended. He clarifies that the different perspectives of the LMs cause the semantic difference. Tyler and Evans(2003) try to......

If one traces the development of mankind from what he considers its earliest stage he will find that wandering family of savages depended entirely upon what its members said to one another. A little later when a group of families made a clan or tribe the individuals still heard the commands of the leader, or in tribal council voiced their own opinions. The beginnings of poetry show us the bard who recited to his audiences. Drama, in all primitive societies a valuable spreader of knowledge, entertainment, and religion, is entirely oral”.

...A Brilliant Madness: Living With Manic-Depressive Illness Kristen Doty Dr. Aaron New Abnormal Psychology 20 April 2012 Patty Duke suffers from manic-depressive disorder. She had no clue that she actually had a mental illness till she was thirty five. She always knew something was wrong with her but never really had it checked out. Patty Duke was a celebrity so she could have gotten help throughout the whole time she was in her teen years to when she was diagnosed. I read the book A Brilliant Madness: Living with Manic-Depressive Illness. It is a biography of Patty Duke’s life.  In this book Patty Duke, with the help of the medical writer Gloria Hochman, discusses her struggle as an actress with bipolar disorder, and gives many details about the symptoms and treatments of manic depression.   Patty Duke is very credible as an author because the part of the book that she wrote is a biography.   Gloria Hochman is also credible as a writer because she is a professional medical author.          A Brilliant Madness describes the different levels of manic depression, the signs and symptoms of it, and the treatments that follow.   It goes into great detail when recognizing certain behavioral patterns and describes the different situations that others have experienced. The book even describes the medications used in treating the disorder.   It mainly talks about the use of lithium as a medication, which is very effective for the majority of people who take it......

...www.VietPhD.org Speaking Notes For TOEFL iBT Useful tips: (suitable for all questions) ☛Make it NATURAL, pauses, such as “well”, “um”, and “you know”, are advisable, but don’t do it too much. ☛CORRECT your mistakes as soon as you find out, for example, “... I really like standing in, I mean, ON the mountain,” (I know it’s a bad example. What I’m trying to clarify is that it is OK to make mistakes, but you gotta correct it once you made it.) so the examiner would not count down your score. ☛There is NO NEED to use freaking words, like “exonerate”, which means absolve, and “flamboyant”, which means showy. But those words are good to use in your essay. ☛“The FIRST way, the LAST way, the NEVER FAILING way to develop self-confidence in speaking is--TO SPEAK.” --Dale Carnegie Independent speaking (Question 1 & 2) In this section, you are asked to present your own opinion and provide examples to support your ideas. Useful tips: ☛Your answer should be as SPECIFIC as possible.

...The Video, Brilliant Public Speaking, relates to the topics this week as public speaking is an important part of communication, and a common need in the workplace, whether it be in front of small groups or large groups, public speaking is something that occurs on a fairly regular basis in the workplace. When listening to the different segments of this video, the section that applied to me the most was the section about overcoming nerves. Anytime that I have had to speak in front of large groups, I instantly am nervous. There are even points where I felt myself stuttering or using small words as filler while I thought about where I was on the subject matter as the nervousness caused my mind to go blank. Some of the techniques that were mentioned in this video that I would like to try to use the next time I have to give a presentation are to smile and practice in the room that I will be presenting in. In the video, it spoke about knowing your surroundings before giving a speech, and while most of the times I have had to do public speaking in a public setting it had been at the same location, I have never tried to practice there first. I feel that this could be a great asset to preparation. Another tool is turning the nerves into excitement by smiling. When I get nervous, I tend not to smile as I am so focused on trying to not be nervous, I forget the basics of facial expressions and how the audience reacts to this. If I had to give someone advice on how to......

...Brilliant Public Speaking Brilliant Public Speaking June 22, 2014 June 22, 2014 BCOM/275 Christopher J. Brown BCOM/275 Christopher J. Brown 2014 2014 Brilliant Public Speaking The art of public speaking has been around for a very a long time and can be traced all the way back to ancient Greece which is almost 2500 years ago. The principles of speech and public speaking were drawn from the experience and practices of the ancient Greece and besides a few cultural and societal modifications the principles have virtually stayed intact. The definition of public speaking is defined as speaking to a group of people in a structured, deliberate manner intended to inform, influence, or entertain the listeners (Public Speaking, 2007). In the video entitled “Brilliant Public Speaking” it has touched on points that have tied into the reading for this week on many different levels. One such lesson that stands out is the lesson on persuasion and although you may not consider a public speaker to be one who is persuasive it does indeed apply. For example, I have been instructed by my organization to try and procure benefactors in order to sell computers that will cut down on the processing time and labor hours for their organization. Since I have to persuade them in order to buy my product I am must be a good effective public speaker in order sell my point and product. Another example would be if I were going in for a job interview for a potential employer I am going to have......

Brilliant Public Speaking

...Brilliant Public Speaking XXXXXXXXX BCOM/275 25 June 2014 xxxxxxxxxxxx Brilliant Public Speaking The video opens with a very powerful statement “No one cares about what you want to say they only care about what they want to hear.” (Brilliant Public Speaking) This statement sums up every reason to “know your audience.” A speaker can be revealing the secrets of the universe but if the audience is not interested in the content it will not matter how well the speech can be delivered. When speaking to an audience, it is equally important to have quality content and to have an understanding of your audience. If a speaker ensures both content and delivery are directed towards the audience, he or she will have the best chance for a good performance. Of the best practices, the one I found most interesting is to treat the presentation as if you are holding a conversation with the audience. We hold conversations every day so if the speaker feels like he or she is having a conversation the presentation will appear more natural. The first few moments are vital to the success of the performance. If a speaker appears comfortable and confident from the beginning, I think that the audience will be more accepting of mistakes later in the speech. If a speaker seems to be nervous and lacks confidence, the audience may not listen as intently as they should. The best advice that I could give someone about public speaking would be to know his or her subject. When I am speaking to......

...Brilliant Public Speaking BCOM/275 Brilliant Public Speaking 2 At the start of this video you hear a powerful statement “No one cares about what you want to say they only care about what they want to hear.” This statement could not be any closer to the truth. Communicating effectively has nothing to do with what you are saying it has everything to do with communicating in a way where your audience can hear you. In other words it is very important to know your audience. You could be talking about how to cure cancer but if your audience is not interested, or engaged in the conversation then they will not be listening at all. You must always remember to have good quality content and know who you are talking to. Understand what kind of crowd you are dealing with so that you have the best chance of giving your best performance and leave feeling that your audience understood and heard what you said. Out of all of the different practices discussed in the video, I found that the one that relates best to me is to act as if you are having a conversation with the audience. It is natural for most of us to hold a conversation as this is something we do on a daily basis. The conversation aspect of any speech will help the speaker to appear more natural and comfortable with the audience and invite better listening. As soon as a speaker steps in front of their audience the tone of the entire performance is set. If the speaker appears comfortable and confident at......

Brilliant Public Speaking

...In the online video Brilliant Public Speaking, Newman (2013) stated that “no one cares what you want to say, what they care about is what they want to hear,” that’s a very powerful statement to open this video with, and really hit home with me. In any public speaking event where I have been one of the speakers, I always delivered the message with the intention of delivering what I wanted to say, not what the audience wanted to hear. Five minutes into this video proved that my way of delivering a message, may not have always had the impact on my listeners that I had intended. This video demonstrates some of the best ways to deliver an effective speech, and touches on some key points to not only captivate your audience, but to insure that the message that was intended be delivered , in fact is received by the audience. All of the subjects that were discussed in the video are key elements in delivering a powerful and effective speech. There is one key point though, that is most significant when trying to captivate your audience, and that is the opening. If you are not able to capture your audience in the first few minutes of your speech, there is a good chance you will never make that connection with them, and your message will be completely lost. If your message is not received, not only is this a waste of your time, but a waste of your audiences’ time as well. If your speech was sales oriented, the lack of a powerful and memorable speech could have a negative impact......

The topics of the week coincide with the video because how information is transferred in the common factor. The experts provide solid advice on how to deliver an exceptional speech all while keeping the audience entertained. Building confidence to deliver a speech is one of the practices that I need to work on when it comes to public speaking. I have become better at it, since enrolling at University of Phoenix however, at times my nerves still get the best of me. I have always been the type of person that prefers to be behind the scenes when it comes to completing tasks. I do not have to be in the forefront or limelight to feel appreciated. Some of the practices the experts gave seemed to be common knowledge, such as the dress code, eating properly, and getting plenty of rest in the days leading up to the speech. I would share the information I learned that was provided in the video. There were so many valuable tips to pass along. I would first advise the perspective speaker to understand the audience that the information is to be given. I would discuss things such as choosing the appropriate subject matter, how to overcome nervousness and make it work to your benefit, conferring with the sponsors regarding the proper dress code, and how to practice the speech in the mirror prior to delivery. In conclusion, it is imperative to prepare for a......

Innocence Is Brilliant

...Sharon Shut Mr. Butler Literature- Period 8 3 March 2011 Innocence is Brilliant By: Sharon Shut To Kill a Mockingbird was written by Harper Lee. Harper Lee’s intention in writing this book was to shed light on the fact that there is an evil that exists in all of the characters. This evil is what prevents the possibility of humans creating a perfect world or 'utopia'. This is emphasized by racism, the gossip and legends that spread around town, especially about Boo Radley, that even those who seem like they are good, still have evil in themselves, this is emphasized through Atticus, when he shoots the dog, and mainly how people loose innocence over time, like Jem and Scout. One of the key themes is definitely innocence and how even the most unexpected things can be innocent. In the beginning of the book examples of innocence are stated when Scout tries to explain to her teacher that she is embarrassing Walter Cunningham by offering him something that he won't be able to pay back. Scout realizes that because her teacher isn't a local, she won't know that about the Cunninghams, but Scout's explanation gets her into trouble. She wasn't trying to be insulting, but Miss Caroline mistook her frank and innocent explanation as condescension or rudeness and punished her for it. Another example is when Scout is too young to understand the social graces of Southern hospitality that say that you always make people feel at home and welcome no matter how unusual their......

...life” (p.540). There are many reasons why English should be the official language in relation to jobs and the work environment. For example, being able to do what is required of you and make your work useful to the company. Some immigrants may not be able to work a job because they lack English knowledge. Other immigrants may be able to do a job that is required but it would not be useful to a company when for example when completed work is done in a different language and no one else in the company can understand their work. Another reason is fairness, if an immigrant always does the same job because his language limits him, while an English speaking employee is required to do multiple job tasks because he understands how to do what he is told to and that is not fair because the immigrant is doing less work than the English speaking employee. Communication problems is another reason why English should be the official language of the United States. Communication is very important in the work area, and it may be hard for some immigrants to communicate with their co-workers. In some jobs employees are required to work together and that may be hard if one employee doesn’t speak English. Communication problems may also arise when employees and customers interact and the employee doesn’t understand the customer or vise versa. Safety can also be and issue if an immigrant tries to tell an American something and does not understand and ends up getting injured or if an......

...Brilliant Public Speaking XXXXXXXXXXX BCOM 275 June 30th, 2014 Dr. Rankin   Brilliant Public Speaking After watching the “Brilliant Speaking Video”, I believe that I have so much more knowledge when it comes to speaking. I felt as if I kind of built more confidence especially with the tips that I’ve learned and never paid attention to before until I seen the video in this week’s chapter. In this week’s chapter, the video related to how language is important. Connecting with your audience emotionally is something that can persuade your audience on your beliefs. The video related to the chapter as to the benefits that you could receive from speaking. Being able to speak to people and make an impact by having them listen and believe in what you are saying and you have grabbed there attention is a start for a brilliant speaker. One of the best practices that were discussed in the video in which was more relevant to me was the timing. At times, I tend to make things too long and not just enough. This can make my speech very boring and uninteresting especially when trying to keep the audience’s attention. Learning to keep the audience interested by throwing a little sense of humor is definitely something that I will take with me. I believe that putting my emotions into some things will also benefit me in the end because that’s a way that the audience can connect with me. Another thing that interested me was staying hydrated. Drinking lots water the night before a......

I'm a presentations coach and work with business people from leading organizations, such as the BBC, Vodafone, and Apple. I show them how they can deliver their presentation with huge impact and really get their message across to the audience. Hi. I'm Richard Newman.

We now have over 12 and 1/2 thousand clients all over Europe, the Middle East, and America. We get speaking engagements from Dubai to Chicago, Orlando, Paris, and Rome. And we also work with the British Parliament and international celebrities. When people are starting to think about doing a speech, most people sit there and they think to themselves, right, what do I want to say? And as soon as you do that, you're completely screwed. Because nobody cares about what you want to say. What they care about is what they want to hear. And so when you sit down to think about the purpose of any kind of speech-- be it a wedding speech, or a keynote speech, or a speech at an interview-- you've got to think about what do people want to hear, and what order do they want to hear it in?
