“My tongue is the pen of an expert scribe.” (45:2)
To be a mesmerizing public speaker may be an art, but Dale Carnegie taught that anyone can learn to be an effective speaker. A scribe does not become expert without practice, and neither does a speaker. By listening to great speakers one can learn to use language well and by watching great comedians one can learn to use silence, pauses, to good effect. But the real secret is to speak from your own experience; in other words, to share your own story. Those who speak with sincere conviction, focus on the important points, and summarize the story by relating the lesson they want the listener to learn will be compelling speakers.
