Dear Public Speakers!!

I would like to response to some comments on my lecture “Analysing best Rhetoric Practices”. Looking through our survey I found such comments: “Americanization of thinking..”, ” Too much Barack Obama..”, “I dont like this comparison of our president with Obama.. Cause our president is actually not so good in public speaking..” and so on..

That’s why I want to repeat that we do respect both Medvedev and Obama..

Different situations, different countries, different cultures and traditions made public speaking skills essential for each person striving for presidency in USA and not important for those who want to become a Russian president.

The point of this lecture was to underline the best features in speeches of greatest persons of modern world, to show You a powerful instrument to improve Your public speaking skills!
