Gil Su Kim : Four things I learned from watching this talk 1. "Seven deadly sins of speaking to avoid" 1) gossip -> I need to work on this sin 2) judging -> I need to work on this sin 3) negativity -> I need to work on this sin 4) complaining -> I need to work on this sin 5) excuses 6) lying (embroidery, exaggeration) 7) dogmatism (confusion between fact and opinion) 2. what I need to say: four powerful cornerstones of speech to make a change in the world c.f. "hail means to greet or acclaim enthusiastically" 1) H: honesty (be clear and straight) 2) A: authenticity (be myself) 3) I: integrity (be my word) 4) L: love (wish them well) 3. how I need to say: tools to play with to increase power of my speech 1) register: e.g. if wanting weight, lower pitch of voice 2) timbre: the way voice feels e.g. breathing, posture 3) prosody: rhythm (e.g. not monotone) 4) pace: e.g. slow to emphasize 5) pitch: e.g. make pitch high or low 6) volume: e.g. louder to emphasize 4. exercise the following before making a presentation 1) arms up to sigh out with ahh 2) lips with ba ba 3) lips with brrr 4) tongue with la 5) tongue rolling an r 6) siren from we to aww

Mart kenyon : I do every single one of the sins to a degree. Looks like I'm screwed. Oh there we go. Negativity.

Poetry and Spoken Word : I can't agree with him on exaggeration. Exaggeration is funny some of my favorite people to talk to use funny exaggeration.

J Shirls : The Measures of a Good Speaker are focused on others: Honesty, Empathy/Listening (by doing only 1/2 the talking and allowing for honest questions and comments), and Keeping One's Word, NOT self-focused: how loud (a vain appeal to power) or fast (vain appeal to intellect) one can talk.

Marco Aurélio Lima do Nascimento Junior : It's cool because he's talking is really good

Cuckoo Phendula : I just realized that number 6 is sort of a good reason not to swear often. Other than it being the "negativity" sin, if there is an emotion that only a swear could express, it loses its meaning if one uses it way too often.

Stanislav Didenko : I ate three cheeseburgers while watching this. Nice speed I have.

Jayne Stokes : I have a brummie accent which sounds mostly whiney so if I have to be serious I talk on exhalation which helps.

Lads : Weirdly amusing speech

Toby Swolley : Oh and for everyone who use to do all 7... Througout times of my life I did as well to get people away... And knowing how each 7 truly work... You can avoid most personalities in others you don't like by using their trigger point... It's a crude but effective sociology/psychological methodology
