Here are some of the different types of public talks that you might encounter.
Conference addresses – there may be instances whereby you are asked to give a talk at a business conference. This could be a talk to share knowledge on a skill to inform the attendants of a new product that is coming to market. In some cases, you may also be giving an introductory talk to welcome people to the event.
Talks – if you have a story to share about your life or any successes that you may have had or adversities that you have overcome you will probably give a public talk of one description or another. The style of the talk that you give will depend very much on what story you are sharing as well as the kind of venue that you are going to be talking in. For some people, it may be a more formal talk on a stage with people sitting in a theatre-style layout. For others, it might be a more informal setting whereby there is a more intimate connection between the speaker and the audience.
