Hyderabad: To overcome the current upheavals in various districts of State, potential leaders representing various social groups and professions took to learning important tips on public speaking in the 6th batch of ‘Vakta’. The two-day programme organised by Hmtv in coordination with Kaushalya (School of Life Skills) has left around 24 participants in high spirits, who promised to practice the tips in their day to day lives. D Bal Reddy, Director (Training), Kapil Group, gave important tips on content, body language, how to start and close the speech and other techniques. The Voice Culture & Modulation was presented by ME Azaad and Media Etiquettes by Kiran, senior anchor.
The guest speaker, KV Satyanarayana, secretary, Tribal welfare residential schools brought to light how oratory skills could be developed by everyone with their consistent focus on its development. He said that Greece, which has recorded best orators in the history, some of whom even with their disability in speech, overcame it and influenced the whole world. According to him, even the recent history has seen the best of the global leaders, who actually practiced and honed their skills where ever possible. “Winston Churchill practiced in front of the mirror, one of the best ways to overcome difficulties in speech”, he said.
To become a great orator, Satyanarayana said that ‘preparatory work’ was important. Moreover it is important to identify the audience. “Your message must be clear to audience, which could be ‘intellectuals’ or ‘laymen’ or ‘village folks’.
He said one of the best speeches was delivered in just 3 minutes, by none other than the great president of USA, Abraham Lincoln, which was a guiding force for the super power.Besides this, he said that ‘content’ is an important aspect of any speech, which is lacking in the contemporary speeches delivered by leaders of all hues.
While giving his feedback, Dr G Krishna Goud, Malkajgiri found the ‘Voice Modulation’ technique through Sanskrit as one of the important features of the learning experience. “I gave scores of speeches, but what I learnt from this is how the body language influences the audience”, he said.
A youth leader, Panaganti Satyanarayana, Karimnagar described this as an important learning experience where he identified and overcame several flaws in his style. Inspector of factories, K Krishna Murthy who is getting trained at MCR HRD described this as an experience, never felt before. “At first, I was reluctant to come from a distant place, but now I feel it was worth it”, he said. Md Babur Khan from Nalgonda felt that the two-day training from an experienced trainer gave him important tips, which would help him in the long run.
