Public Speaking Skills:
Bloopers are clumsy mistakes that are usually made in public. The television
show 'TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes' and many blooper books are
indicators of the interest we have in other people's mistakes. How can
these mistakes, or bloopers, be used as part of your public speaking
Mayor Daley of Chicago was being interviewed on TV following the riots
during the Democratic convention. The mayor stated, "The police in Chicago
are not here to create disorder, they are here to preserve it." I hope
I don't create, or preserve, any disorder in my presentation today.
Likely if the mayor had had good public speaking skills, he would have
avoided this embarrassment.
