Dr Capista presents The Role of Self-Confidence in Success posted at The Success Triangle, saying, “If you watch successful people, you will usually find that they are very self-confidant.

    The post from the ERE blog network is by Sarah Welstead, I just submitted it to the carnival for her. I realise you are just using the Blog Carnival automatic carnival generator tool, but could you please correct the author name? If you do, I can make sure a post about the carnival appears on Sarah’s blog.

    Talk about the Rock Stars of Public Speaking!

    Sarah Palin and Barack Obama have taken this skill to a new level and shaken up the podium!

    Their oratory skills brings to the front the discussion of Delivery vs. Content.

    No one questions either of their skills as a speaker, but whether or not they have relevant content in their talks is the talk of pundits everywhere.

    I won’t address that, except to say that content should always be substantial, relevant, timely, and easily understood.

    That stated, if great content can’t be delivered in a manner that captures and keeps the attention and interest of the audience, the message won’t be received and understood.

    Great content plus poor delivery = the audience won’t “Get It!”

    If the audience doesn’t “Get it!”, the speaker failed.
