ROSHAAN AMEERDISCUSSIONPUBLIC SPEAKING ''You should be able to state your speciﬁc purpose in a single inﬁnitivephrase (“to inform my audience about . . .”; “to persuade my audience to . . .”)that indicates precisely what you hope to accomplish with your speech''.PG.80 The text I selected is important to me as a public speaker because it showsand explains to me that you can get to the main topic of what you're talkingabout in a quick manner without adding too much words and extra things.This quote from the text gives good ways on how to persuade the audiencein a precise manner on how to explain the main point that you're trying toconvey to them. From the text that I chose, I will apply this while I'm in the course ratherthan outside of it. It will help me be able to get straight to the point when Ibring up a topic and get the audience more intrigued when I talk. I tend touse a lot of extra words and sentences when I talk about a certain topicwhich tends to lead the audience members in a different direction.
