1. Using Vocal Qualities to Convey Meaning in Public Speaking
To keep your audience engaged, it is important to consider vocal qualities like volume, pace and pitch. These qualities are what keep your speech not only interesting but also engaging. Learn about vocal qualities in this lesson.
2. Considering Pronunciation, Articulation, and Dialect in Public Speaking
The speaker's culture and habits often have much to do with the vocal traits of a speech. Thus, pronunciation, articulation and dialect are three very personal aspects of speech delivery.
3. The Role of Nonverbal Communication During Speech Delivery
When delivering a speech, your body movements tell almost as much about your message as your actual speech. Eye contact, body orientation, posture, facial expressions and gestures play into how your audience perceives your message.
4. What is Social Media? - Definition, Use & Strategies
Think of all the audiences that are reachable today because of the rise of the Internet and social media. Social media lets people and organizations share ideas, make connections and promote themselves online through the use of video, music or words.

Social networking can be used to develop business relationships, connect with customers, find jobs and conduct niche marketing. There are many rules and uses of social networking that business people should be aware of in their daily work.
6. Persuasive Speaking: Purpose and Types
Persuasive writing is all about influencing people by using credibility, logic and emotion; and this can be achieved in a few ways. The speaker may want to assert a fact, a value or even a policy.
7. Informative Speaking: Purpose and Types
Informative speeches are written to inform your audience about a topic. There are several classifications that can be used depending on the purpose of your speech.
8. Using Vivid Language in Public Speaking
A speech should not bore the audience. To captivate your audience and command their attention, the use of vivid language is necessary. This includes using clarity, rhythm and vividness to get your audience to pay attention to your speech.
9. Inclusive Language in Public Speaking: Respecting Diversity
Speechwriters must consider diversity when writing their speeches. A way to avoid offending people is to use inclusive language, or language that the audience is familiar with and understands.
