This speaker's presentation was very well done. One thing I noticed and really liked was his pace. He would walk to one side and stay there for a bit, look around at the audence members there, and then walk to the next side and do the same. Doing this would help you follow along in his speech. He was a bit limited in gestures because of the remote he was holding. However, the ones he did were whenever he put emphasis on his voice. He had great pauses and I could really tell when he raised and lowed hos voice into almost a whisper.
This speaker's energy was contagious. Her voice was very excited and loud and her pauses in between made it even better. Her eyecontact was great. Although, she could have stayed on one side a little longer. Her energy really flowed through her body causing her to move back and forth, but that didn't distract me. Her gestures really showed that she was passionate about what she needed to say and I could feel that as she presented.
I myself feel strongly about adoption, and I hope to adopt a child when I get older. However, it was the presentation of the megssage that made me come to this conclusion. First off, he had good intriguing pauses and a nice voice level. For poise, I feel that he was pacing a little too fast and didn't stop for a moment at the sides. He could have stopped for a little and then strolled to the other side and did the same. Eye contact was good could have been better if he stopped when he paced then he could have also stopped to look at that side. He also only had a few gestures and the ones he did were quite repetitive.
Although, I may have been interested in what he was saying because I have already learned so much about him, I still decided to choose pause. His eye contact was not the best. I understand that he was reading off the paper, but when he looked up, he would only look up at one side. He didn't have any gestures at all and he had many opportunities to do so. He could have include one where he said "I've been waiting more than thirty years to say this." However, as far as I could tell his voice was loud and he had great pauses. His poise was good as well, probably due to the fact that he was standing behind a podium. But he was missing some key elements hence my decision,
This speaker didn't only have a good message, but she executed it very well. She had a great hook at the beginning that really pulled me into wanting to hear more. Her poise showed me that she was very confident and was proud of her speech. She had outstanding pauses that really made you think about what she was saying before she said the next thing. As far as I know, her voice was and loud and firm. She could have had more of a variety of gestures, but the ones she did went along woth her pauses so it made that better. She hit everyone in the room with her eye contact and that made you follow alonng with her as she spoke.
Most times, I would have hit play because the speaker's message was very interesting to me because I enjoy psychology. However, the speakers presentation of the speech made me choose otherwise. Her eye contact was great. I could see her physically moving her body to face the different sides of the room. She did not have the best poise. She was kind of rocking on her feet and that distracted me a bit. The speaker had some gestures, but they weren't very strong so it made her seem like she wasn't excited about her topic. Lastly, her voice stayed very monotone but she did have some intriguing pauses. Like I said before, if she changed the volume of her voice or the emphasis of some of her words that would have made the speech more lively and interesting.
