Why is learning to speak off-the-cuff so important?
Professionally: The higher you climb up the rungs of your success ladder, the more you will be required to speak. You might have to talk about your organization at a conference, make an acceptance speech after receiving an award, make an on-line presentation, give a report to management about your team’s performance or teach a class of new recruits.
Socially: Make a speech at a friend’s wedding, giving a toast to your spouse at his/her birthday, give a eulogy for a loved one, inspire a group at a charity event or introduce yourself at a networking meeting.
