How to speak to college students about their communication with younger youth... Nov 4, 2006
I had to read this book for my Speech Communication class in my first semester of college. I go to a private Christian college, whose soul purpose is to prepare the next generation of Christian leaders. I am a Youth Ministry major and I can say without a doubt that this book has already helped me so much. Ken Davis addresses so many aspects of public speaking and how to do it properly. He addressed things that I was doing wrong that I didnt even know were wrong! There isnt a speech that I have given for class since, that I havent gotten an "A" on. I highly recommend this book to people who are in the ministry, going into the ministry, CEO's, presidents of businesses, corporations, anyone who actually has to get up and speak in front of people. The title may say "How to Speak to Youth...", but the way that Ken Davis has his speaking system set up, it is for ANY speaking setting. If you dont believe me, look into buying his video series or attend one of his confrences. You wont be sorry!
Everything you need before your "Hello!" Nov 21, 2001
If you are interested in talking to youth, you really have to make some adjustments, but this is just the beginning. Ken Davis teach us to prepare a purposeful study (SCORRE Method), to pay attention to all physical structure and to increase attention to your message. Although the book cannot make you become a super-star preacher (no book or study can do it), it makes you aware of all factors that affects your speach.
Good book to help you in any kind of speech. Oct 28, 1998
