Communications skills exercises, part 10b: another example of voicing your self-talk

Following up on this post on voicing your self-talk, a follow-up to what I consider the most effective exercise in improving your self-awareness, here is another example of someone speaking extemporaneously for a long time. He’s not exactly voicing his self-talk, but he is, at least somewhat.

I presume he knew his topic well before this recording, but knowing a topic well doesn’t make speaking for over five minutes on it easy. He has to be able to let the words come out of his mouth with minimal filtering.

I find being able to speak extemporaneously displays high status.

It’s also funny and shows talent. I expect he worked hard to be able to speak like that. Could you do it, in front of an audience, even on a topic of your choice?
