The ability to speak well in public is one of the most sought after skills in our society. And it is undeniably an important trait in a good leader. Why do all nurses need to develop excellent public speaking skills? Because the ability to speak well will lead to career advancement, visibility and credibility, and a unique opportunity to have one’s voice heard. Aside from the personal gain, the nursing profession needs more articulate spokespeople to represent the profession with the public, the media, legislators and others. While most people have an innate fear of speaking in public, anyone can dramatically improve their ability to speak well by learning proper technique, understanding principles of adult learning, and creating presentations that are both rousing and informational. Experience alone is not necessarily the best teacher where public speaking is concerned. There is an art and science to content development, delivery style, and methods of getting your message heard and remembered. Effective speaking can be learned and developed. There are three essential elements of any good presentation: Strong openings, creative and practical cores, and memorable closes. The opening must capture the audience’s attention within seconds or you risk losing them forever. Several tried and true methods will be illustrated. The use of stories, anecdotes, and examples bring the body of the presentation to life and give it texture and substance. It is said that an audience will quickly forget much of what you say after your presentation is over but they will long remember your stories. The closing must tie the major points together for the listener and inspire action, evoke emotion, or convince to a point of view. Additional elements such as body language, preparation and rehearsal, and connecting with your audience will be discussed.
