Public speaking is a soft skill that requires excellent communication skills, enthusiasm, and the ability to engage with an audience. Public speakers make presentations to a group. Presentations range from speaking to a small group of students to presenting the ideas and opinions in front of a large audience at a national conference or other such event. The same set of skill and ability to be comfortable whole speaking in public gathering are required regardless of the size of the group.
The art of public speaking comes into play not only in the delivery of speeches and public talks, but also in professional presentations, training events, and motivational talk. Consultants, trainers, managers and teachers, for example, have always a reason to speak in front of others in a small or a large gathering.
