WHAT IS PUBLIC & MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING OR ENGAGEMENT?
Public speaking (also called oratory or oration) is the process or act of performing a speech to a live audience. This type of speech is deliberately structured with three general purposes: to inform, to persuade and to entertain. Public speaking is commonly understood as formal, face-to-face speaking of a single person to a group of listeners whereas motivational speaking or inspirational speaking is the making of speeches intended to motivate or inspire an audience. Such speeches may attempt to challenge or transform audiences.
There are five basic elements of public and motivation speaking that are described in Lasswell’s model of communication: the communicator, message, medium, audience and effect. In short, the speaker should be answering the question “who says what in which channel to whom with what effect?”
Public speaking and motivation can serve the purpose of transmitting information, telling a story, motivating people to act or some combination of those. Public speaking and motivation can also take the form of a discourse community, in which the audience and speaker use discourse to achieve a common goal.
Public speaking and motivation for business and commercial events is often done by professionals. These speakers can be contracted independently, through representation by a speakers bureau, or by other means. Public speaking plays a large role in the professional world; in fact, it is believed that 70 percent of all jobs involve some form of public and motivation speaking.
