When speaking for media or on certain occasions when words are needed to
connect the parts of an evening or an event, there is no substitute for
experience. Some of the writing I do is specifically intended for oral
presentation. Some of the speaking I am asked to do is to create not just a
bunch of quotable sound bites, but to project a deeper sense of the subject
that is steeped in the image the client believes is in her best interest.

When developing toastmaster or other speaking skills: practice, listen to
your work and solicit comments from thoughtful constructive critics. It will
put a foundation of confidence beneath what you do and make you job easier
and entertaining. That's what the media expects today. News media tends to
come to the best show. Even the most reserved corporate events are better
remembered when the program has speakers that shine, speakers that tell great
stories, speakers that connect the audience to the message.

This does not happen by accident. And while some people are naturally gifted,
for most the skill of polished presentation comes only after years of work.
