This episode of the Public Speaking Super Powers Podcast features Carma’s interview with Joel Schwartzberg, a former collegiate national champion public speaker, a competitive public speaking coach for colleges, and Media Bistro’s only public speaking instructor. He’s also the author of an anthology book called The 40-Year-Old Version.
Length: 11 minutes, 40 seconds
Joel Schwartzberg believes in the power of your voice to convey strength, as well as weakness. In this episode, he shares his technique for conveying strength with your voice, especially during “milestone” points in your speech.
Joel Schwartzberg’s Big Tip: “Don’t make every sentence end in the period,” says Schwartzberg. “That’s not the goal. The goal is to train your ear for [the uptick] so you can [use a periond] as often as possible. But very importantly, in your speech will come all these what I call milestone points, this point you want to make. Here’s what I want you to take away. At the end of those points especially that’s when it’s most important to end with a period.”
