Mini-Quiz: Be a Champion Public Speaker

by Ron Kurtus (24 May 2002)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. How can you be thankful when you didn't get applause for your speech?

Consider that at least you had the opportunity to speak

Realize that you got a raw deal

You can't be thankful all the time

2. Why should you bother trying to be valuable to the audience?

It is only necessary if they pay you enough money

It isn't worth the effort, because they don't care about you

Speaking engagements depend on the value you provide

3. What good does it do to help others?

It is what makes life worthwhile

It is worthwhile if you want a favor at a later time

You've got to look out for yourself and not others

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Public Speaking. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
