New Directions for Public Speaking
As Schnoor and Karns (1992) have noted, a great spirit of camaraderie and cooperation existed after the Second Developmental Conference on Individual Events concerning the direction of events (pp. 13-16). One of the questions posed at this conference, the authors note, was how to improve the original speaking events. At this the Third Developmental Conference, we ask the question, "How do we discover effective new directions in the original speaking events?" Today, my paper will assess both tried and innovative new directions in after dinner speaking, with a discussion of the other original speaking events as necessary for background material. Particularly, I shall address how these new directions should be assessed on their ability to differentiate the pedagogical value of this event from those derived from participation in informative speaking and persuasive speaking, and to make the event more suitable to the public arena.
