In an important speech, oral delivery is key, ingredients to oral delivery are tone, volume, rate, enthusiasm and clarity, how well you deliver these aspects determines how well your speech is received. A good example of all of these in a package is Brad Ames. Brad had flowing smooth sentences, while speaking with ease, as if he was truly having a 2 way conversation with the audience. His volume was not too loud, not to soft, it was clear and not overbearing. His attention grabber, or how he brought people into his speech, wasn’t as good as it could have been, but it was still good. A bad example of these things was Mike Gitner, he had a bit of a bumbling frightened speaking tone, with no enthusiasm and too inconsistent of a tone.
The attention grabber is also an important element to the speech. The attention grabber is the first thing people hear, and normally how they judge the speech. The best attention grabber I heard was probably my own, not to be self centered, but i felt that if i combined statistics and repetition into one, I would have good results.

Pose, the way you carry yourself, posture, eye contact, all these elements play a key role in your speech.
A good example of excellent non verbal communication was Lily, she stood, not stiffly, but comfortably at the podium, made frequent eye contact, and used her notes only as reference, and used them sparingly. A bad example of this I thought was myself, i did not make enough eye contact, because when i actually said the speech out loud, it sounded different, and I panicked. I think the reason for this is lack of correct preparation. I didn’t read the speech out loud, and it wasn’t the same as going over it in your head.
Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do good things happen to bad people? These two questions have bewildered mankind throughout the centuries. Even the greatest philosophers and theologians have yet to develop a concrete answer. Philosophers, theologians, and even religious leaders have developed many hypotheses. Some of these hypotheses support each other while others conflict. It is for ...
