Professional Public Speakers Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always observed on August 7
Today is Professional Public Speakers Day, a day to recognize the importance of those who stand up in front of us and share their knowledge and insight on an endless range of topics.
To be a speaker requires a very special and unique skill set. As soon as a speaker walks up to the dais, turns on the microphone, and opens his mouth, that unique set of skills becomes clearly apparent. Often a person has what it takes to talk in public, or is the expert in their field, but not both. First you have to have the ability, and shall we say the nerve, to speak in public. All too many people have everything else needed to be a good speaker. To many, the thought of talking in public in front of a group is nothing short of terrifying. For some people public speaking comes naturally, while others have an inbred fear that takes tremendous will power and practice to overcome. Some people never get over the fear, and refuse to speak in public. A speaker also needs to be knowledgeable on the topic to be discussed. Better still, they are often experts in their fields. For speakers who allow a Q&A after the talk, the depth of this knowledge and expertise is essential, and is clearly on display.
Participating in this day is quite easy. Simply attend a seminar or an event with a speaker. Make sure to give a heart felt applause after the speech. Another way to mark this day, is to speak publically yourself. Not quite ready to speak in public? Take a course in public speaking. You'll be glad you did!
Origin of Professional Public Speakers Day:
We found very little information or reference to this day. We did not find the creator or when it was first created. This special event appears to be very recently created.
There was so little information and documentation about this day, that we almost chose not to post it. But, we feel that it is important to recognize those who speak in public, not just professionals, but all public speakers, if only for the bravery they display in talking in front of people and groups.
