ROSHAAN AMEERDISCUSSIONPUBLIC SPEAKING Before starting a presentation, the ﬁrst thing we need to do is choose atopic, but for me, even for everyone choosing a suitable topic forthemselves is very important. Because the topic you want to do, if youunderstand and know it, you will convey it to the listener in the easiest andfastest way, without intermediaries, without being confused when othersask questions you already know. Should we choose a topic that challenges us or should we choose a topicthat anyone talks about? Oh, it's a question that is lingering my head whenI start making a presentation. But for me, choosing a topic should be basedon the issues you've already known, and everyone can imagine it to make iteasier to understand, but it will not be boring because we need to knowabout that topic ﬁrst, then feel interested to continue and then ﬁnd deeperinto the subject matter you want to work on or even see it from a differentperspective. To continue, selecting a subject for your presentation that is eitherunfamiliar to you or in which you have little interest can make the processof preparing for and presenting the presentation more difﬁcult. It might bemore difﬁcult to coordinate your thoughts and communicate the messageto the audience in a way that is crystal obvious and succinct. If you are notknowledgeable about the subject, you might not be able to respond toinquiries or provide additional information on it if they are asked. Therefore, it is essential to settle on a subject that you are bothknowledgeable and enthusiastic about to write your paper on. Because ofthis, you will be able to more effectively communicate your message,attract the audience, and keep their attention. If you are knowledgeable
and enthusiastic about the subject matter, it will come across in yourperformance, which will result in a presentation that is more interesting tothe audience and more successful overall.
