Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

The Transactional Model of Communication

I once heard someone say, "It's not what you say, but how you say it!"

A better statement might be, "It's both what you say AND how you say it!"

    In order to be taken seriously as a speaker, one must organize messages in the best way possible and deliver those messages in a manner that fits the specific speaking situation. One audience may have different values, desires, or expectations than another and a good speaker needs to know how to adapt his or her goals to meet the needs of that specific audience.  

    I created this page to help speech students or business professionals understand the process of developing and giving effective speeches, or as a resource for speech teachers who might like some help in preparing lectures, syllabi, or assignments. Take a look around and click some links. Feel free to modify my resources to use as your own and/or offer me feedback on how to make the resource better.
