Public Speaking

Public speaking is the process of speaking to a group of people in a structured, deliberate manner intended to inform, influence, or entertain the listeners. It is closely allied to "presenting", although the latter has more of a commercial connotation.

In public speaking, as in any form of communication, there are five basic elements, often expressed as "who is saying what to whom using what medium with what effects?"

The purpose of public speaking can range from

  • simply transmitting information
  • motivating people to act
  • simply telling a story
  • motivational speaking, leadership/personal development, business, customer service

Public speaking can be a powerful tool to use for purposes such as motivation, influence, persuasion, informing, translation, or simply entertaining.

A  speaker professional and competent public speaker will create effective speech thus increasing the overall ethos of the audience.

MD, Estates in Africa

Right from the word go my dealings with IGA were of complete professionalism.

Corne Groesbeek
Customer Services Manager, NetCB Solutions (Pty) Ltd

As a relatively unknown person I was nominated to stand for Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of the largest Golf Estate in South Africa. From the time I briefed Mike, he took control and ownership of the entire campaign. Very soon I was presented with a comprehensive strategic election campaign that was not only professional, but very structured and focused on the key areas. Needless to say, the results far exceeded my expectations..."
