Analyze Dr. Eric Thomas’ presentation called “You Owe You” and Amy Cuddy’s presentation on non-verbal communication.
Was there an attention grabber at the beginning? What is Non-Verbal Communication like? Helpful or distracting? (eye contact, movement, gestures, etc.). Is the topic appropriate for the venue? Consider articulation, rate, inflection, pitch, volume, word choice, pauses, etc. Was there a strong/compelling close? Was there a personal connection or reaction to the speech/speaker/topic? Your overall impression of the topic/speech skills of the speaker. Is there something you will take from or adopt from the speeches?
