The paper explains that while everyone talks, very few manage it in front of others with a confident manner, definitive goal and end success. The paper quotes experts on public speaking; Lucas, Gard, Krannich, Fellows and Dunckel and highlights their formula that being prepared for the practical problems that confront every speaker is the secret to a good speech. The paper explains that while they summarize their findings differently and approach different types of speech work in their research, they agree on the three key tasks of setting goals; constant and good preparation, quelling the fears that stand in the way of every presenter and a thorough presentation.

From the Paper:

"The words of seminal speakers have not only woven the prose of a poet's pontification, they have inspired the events and actions that have determined the course of the world. "Throughout history, people have used public speaking as a vital means of communication," Stephen Lucas writes. Making ones words public are easily done well; while everyone talks, very few manage it in front of others with a confident manner, definitive goal, and end success. The habits of highly effective speakers are educational; while sometimes innate, they are learned skill sets, honed, and practiced daily to conquer fear, gather thoughts, and control attention. Personal experience lends to my understanding of public speaking as not just a message to spread nor system or rhetoric, but rather an amalgamation of the academic, theoretical, and practical standards of speech."
