Public Speaking

Guy Kowasaki points us to The Speaking Channel, a nifty site which has this set of videos with speeches and accompanying commentary on what makes them good. I don't agree with all the points, but the Guy Kowasaki (you know there's a reason he pointed to it :-) and John Edwards speeches are worth watching.

Great site for those that speak to audiences from time to time and want to improve. They have audio and video podcasts as well. (The first few podcasts are in WAV format. Guess it took a while to figure out the whole MP3 compression thing :-)

Speaking of "Guys", the same site has the video of Guy Goma, the poor sap that was arriving at the BBC for a job interview, mistaken for another "Guy" who was late for a TV interview, and was whisked on the air and interviewed by the news anchor. The petrified look on his face as he tries to fake his way through it is hysterical. If you haven't seen it, it's worth the trip.
