WHAT QUALITIES DO GREAT SPEAKERS POSESS?
"GREAT SPEAKERS"/"GREAT ORATORS": CHARACTERISTICS OF POPULAR, "GIFTED PUBLIC SPEAKERS"
A "great, gifted speaker" once said: "If you observe nature at work, you will marvel at the intelligence contained within it. Fish don't try and swim, they just swim. Flowers don't try and bloom, they just bloom. Birds don't try to fly, they just fly..."
In much the same way, in public speaking - great orators/great public speakers don't try and speak, they just speak. Great speakers don't try and capture the attention, interest or win the respect and trust of their audience, it happens almost magically. Or does it? Well, they are popular speakers because they have mastered the art of public speaking.

Learn how to be a great, talented speaker
Qualities of a great, professional, eloquent speaker
Who are some of the great speakers of your/our generation that you know and like? What do they have in common? They have a lot in common, but also a lot of distinctive characteristics. Most of them are brave men and women, who are not afraid of telling the truth or of being rejected for their opinions. They are fearless; they are not trying to survive - they just tell the truth as it is. They use humour wisely and their speeches are strong yet not forceful. Gifted speakers resonate with audiences and are downright professional.
An important quality in public speaking
Great, talented orators or speakers have their own distinctive qualities which they are not afraid or ashamed of using to their benefit and to their audiences'enjoyment. Infact, they have an unmatched ability to take good advantage of their uniqueness and to highlight it.
You just have to listen to the quality and originality of their voices to know that they are no copy cats. They are not trying to mimick or imitate anybody. They are themselves. That is the very first lesson in attaining the title of a great speaker. Do not dilute your voice or your style, just polish them. This also forms the real "art of public speaking."
"Great orators have an ability to captivate, teach and entertain their audience at the same time." - Unknown
