Public speaking is a presentation given in front of a live audience, whether it be to inform, educate, persuade or entertain public speaking has been around for thousands of years, beginning in the eras of Ancient Greece and Rome. The importance of public speaking, according to the Ancient Greeks, stems from the purpose of rhetoric and persuasion. The purpose, however, is to move the audience to action or to educate on specific topics. In the fields of education and writing, public speaking intends to question specific issues and cause a rise in the audience to have specific reactions. A great example of public speaking for education is TED Talks.
