Public Speaking

Critique my response
The Question: We can listen at a rate at least three times faster than that rate that we can speak. What impact does this have on communication?

Response: Ones should take the head-nodders and the note-takers as signs that the audience is following one's argument. If these people seem to outnumber the people not paying attention, then the speech is being well-received. The single most important bit of evidence about the audience's attention, however, is eye contact. If members of the audience will look back at you when you are speaking, then you have their attention. If they look away, then your contact with the audience is probably fading.

    Plagiarism can get you into a heap of trouble.
