Public Speaking - Background

Public speaking

Public speaking (also called oratory or oration) is the process or act of performing a speech to a live audience. This type of speech is deliberately structured with three general purposes- to inform, to persuade and to entertain.
Historical Significance: famous speeches of some of the world's greatest orators eg Theodore Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Mahatma Gandhi, John F Kennedy etc gave hope in despair, inspired brave feats, gave courage to the weary and above all changed the course of history.

Winston Chirchill 1940 “We will Fight on the Beach”
Jawaharlal Nehru 1947 “Tryst with Destiny”
Mahatma Gandhi 1942 “Quit India”
John F Kennedy 1960 “Ask not what a country can do for you”
Sachin Tendular “Farewell Speech”
Martin L King 1963 “I have a Dream”
Barack Obama 2009 “Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech”
Subhash C Bose 1944 “Give me Blood & I will give you Freedom”

Our Coaching Philosophy
We structure our approach  in the form of 3E’s.


We understand that every individual is different. He or she has their own unique strengths & aspirations. We endeavour to bring out the best in them through positive encouragement and re-enforcement in their self belief & outlook.


Every individual has a right to express. We aim to enhance this power to express through training in verbal and non verbal communication.


We provide opportunity to the students for live stage performances at the end of each session. Just like one cannot really learn swimming by reading books or watching videos on swimming, we believe that the true test is when a student can perform comfortably on stage.
