Your best bet for being listened to when delivering a controversial message

People always want to be given a list of “good speakers.” For me, a good speaker is one who is genuine and who doesn’t make me uncomfortable with ego issues.

The young woman in this You Tube speech is about as good as you can get in terms of speaking on a hot-button issue. Regardless of which side of this issue you are on, she makes it possible to listen to her story.

So, pay attention to her ability to convey her passion without sounding as though she has an ax to grind. In addition, her pauses are powerful.

She’s a good role model for all of us for speaking with passion and without ego.
