Public Speaking Blogosphere: Week in Review [2008-01-26]

Week In ReviewIt is time again to review the past week here at Six Minutes and throughout the public speaking blogosphere.

As always, there is a wide range of great advice for speakers.

This week also features a series of articles on speech analysis, reflections on Martin Luther King Jr., several opinions on PowerPoint, and the first articles of Toastmasters contest season.

[Before we begin, did you catch last week’s review?]

Week in Review: Six Minutes

This focus this week was the Speech Analysis Series. Four articles were published this week to join the opening article last week.

Finally, on the lighter side:

Week in Review: Public Speaking Blogosphere

These are the best public speaking articles I read in the past week.

PowerPoint and Slideware

Toastmaster Contest Season Kicks Off

Articles to Read See and Hear

I’d like to point out the efforts of two bloggers who, in addition to writing articles mentioned above, also contributed personal audio and video to the blogosphere this week.

  • John Watkis posted a series of video clips from a presentation he delivered to the Canadian Association of Professional Speakers. His argument is fascinating – the connection between music and public speaking. I mentioned one segment [part 2] last week. The rest of the series [part 1, parts 3 and 4] is worth watching too.
  • Ian Griffin posted an audio podcast of an interview with Elfrena Foord discussing several topics of interest to public speakers.

I hope others (including me) in the public speaking blogosphere will adopt these formats so that we can read, see, and hear their articles too.
