give the speaker some context and to help them make the most of the moment.
The speaker, here is a guy named Adam in the clip above. Here he is with a very long speech, and we can see that it’s very difficult to get the speaker to finish off when she is full of story. It’s a good thing that the speaker has a lot of context and is very good at conveying it.
Because it’s not about the speaker, there is no context in it. The speaker can just say, “I’m interested in doing some work on this one, but I don’t want to waste any more time on it.” If she doesn’t want to waste more time, she can do some more work on it. A lot of times, they’ll just keep on making the speech, trying to get the speaker to finish off.
An excellent example of this is when I was in a meeting with marketing, and someone wanted to show me something. I was trying to figure out what it was, but I wasnt sure if I wanted to show it to the whole group or just one person. I figured it was better to just show it to the one person who was really interested, and then hope that person would like it. Of course, this was the wrong move.
The speaker of the speech wanted to make sure that the audience understood what he was going to say, and so he made the mistake of using words that he had no idea how to use (like “praise”). I ended up telling the whole group and their boss that I didnt think the speech was worth my time because I didnt think it was any good. I was just trying to get people to like it. Thats why you dont use “praise”.
Praise is important. It tells a speaker that what he has to say is important and is worth his time and effort. Sometimes it can be a great way to communicate and get the message across. I’m not saying that praise should be the only way to communicate, but it definitely can be an effective way.
Pronounce praise. Pronounce it as praise. This is one of the least effective ways to communicate.
Pronouncing praise is a waste of time, energy, and money and we know you are trying to do your best, but this is still a waste of time and energy. It’s not that you don’t appreciate what you are saying, it’s that you are wasting the time and energy of the speaker.
We know, it’s true. It is. But it’s not the only way you can communicate. And that is why we make the Pronounce the primary aim of an informative speech. You are not doing your best. You are not communicating. You are wasting our time and energy.
That’s what we think too. We just wanted to point it out. But we would like to point it out anyway, because we think it’s important.
