The Questions

Each of these speakers was asked four questions. It is their answers to these questions that helped me develop the content of Public Speaking Super Powers. Each speaker interpreted the questions in their own unique way and through conducting so many interviews I was able to perceive patterns that you can apply to improve and fine tune your public speaking skills.

Here are the four questions they answered:

  • Just so listeners can get a feel for your unique expertise, could you tell us a little about your journey to success in public speaking?
  • Do you believe public speaking is a learned skill or something you are born being able to do? Why?
  • If you were a public speaking super hero, what do you believe would be your main super powers?
  • What advice would you give someone if they wanted to develop that particular super power, too?

Carma Spence“The experience of doing these interviews has been very interesting … because I’m asking the same questions of everyone. But, because everyone is unique and has followed a unique path to their own public speaking success, what they have to say around those questions leads to different topics that sprout off from it.”
– Carma Spence
