If you ask most people, they’ll probably say they don’t like public speaking. They may even admit to being afraid of it since fear of public speaking is a very common fear. Or they may just be shy or introverted. For those reasons, many people avoid speaking in public if they can. If you’re one of those people who avoid speaking in public, you’re missing out.
Over the years, public speaking in communication has played a major role in education, government, and business. Words have the power to inform, persuade, educate, and even entertain. And the spoken word can be even more powerful than the written word in the hands of the right speaker.
Great leaders are always considered first-class communicators, they have a clear set of values and they always believed in promotions and inculcating those values in others. This ability to motivate has largely been a result of solid communication skills. It can be said that communication is not merely the exchange of information but is an art that is well used in the contemporary world to pave the way for inspiration and success.
Understanding this, ICT Academy has been organizing the “ICT academy Youth talk” since 2014, with the aim to evolve the communication skills among the students, the future leaders. ICT academy youth talk has now become the tradition among the students of higher education, competing against each other to exhibit their public speaking skills thus evolving the leadership capabilities. The initiative is envisioned to identify young, powerful communicators and leaders who can communicate their thoughts to inspire the youth and peers in their community.
