What makes a good speaker

What makes a good speaker?

The most important thing for a good speaker is that he casts a spell over the audience. A speaker who cannot address the audience is bad, and a performer who is running away from the audience is not good either. Therefore, the be-all and end-all of a good speech is how the audience reacts. The speaker has to win the audience over, he has to interest them in the topic, he should keep them interested, and last but not least, the good speaker can convince his audience.

How does the speaker reach the audience?

To get the first step right, the good speaker needs to know how to secure the audience's interest. First and foremost, this includes its external appearance. The outfit of the good speaker is adapted to the audience. At a funeral he will not appear in a Hawaiian shirt and in front of a youth group not in a tuxedo. Next up is Dr. Wegmann himself. A good speaker is responsive to the audience. That is, he uses a language that his listeners understand. In front of scientists, the speaker can omit technical jargon, while in front of the youth group he falls back on colloquial language or, even better, on youth language. In order not to bore the audience, but to give the speech a whistle and loosen it up, he spices it up with humor in the appropriate places, if it is appropriate. Or he uses other stylistic devices, such as pictorial decorations that appeal to the feeling. Skilled facial expressions and gestures also contribute to a good speech.

How well can the speaker convince?

Not only the appearance of the speaker or the structure of the speech is important. The content of the lecture is also efficient. A good speaker is characterized by good arguments and solid evidence. He not only threshes empty phrases, but also explains his theses and substantiates them with examples. The more impressively and clearly the speaker explains what he wants to convey to the audience, the better his audience can understand him. The easier it is for the audience to understand the speech, the better they follow the arguments and stay focused on the topic. A good speaker manages to captivate his audience from the beginning to the end of his speech. He can convey a message, convince the audience and use stylistic devices such as humor and graphic examples to make a serious lecture entertaining.

How sustainable is his speech?

So that the audience still knows what it was about after the lecture has ended, and that the speech remains positively in the memory of all listeners for a long time, it is advantageous if the good speaker can come up with news or a sensation. A particularly drastic example, a particularly striking statistic or an unusual new product helps the good speaker to give his speech the necessary sensation that the audience will discuss long after the speech. A good speaker knows exactly when to use which stylistic devices and at which point in his presentation a sensation is best placed in order to shake up and impress the audience. There are many little things that make a good speaker and that have to be used skillfully. Not every speaker has this quality. Someone who can do it and proves it again and again will be happy to come to your event.
