Have you ever spoken in public about something you are passionate about?

Public speaking is one of the most terrifying things according to most people. Would you do it? Have you done it? If you have, how long did you speak for and did you prepare for it.

I do it every month, to a bunch of hard headed inmates.
These guys pull no punches, so I have to be fast-firm-and very focused.
If I am asked to preach, 20 mins is about as best we can hold their attention.
(they come of their own free will by the way to chapel).
What do you talk about?
by meggf
They come to 'Chapel' (another word for Church) inside jails.
Give ya one guess what I talk about :)

I have in classroom situations - did a speech about abortion once in high school. But since then, no. I'm too passionate and would come across as an irrational nut. I'll leave the talking to those who appear more level-headed. That said, I wish I could.

I was asked to speak at the 2011 Australian Homebirth conference (that's what the photo is in case you didn't guess). I spoke for all of 15 minutes. It was scary!!!! But it went really well, and lots of people came up to me afterwards and thanked me etc.
Great! good on you :)

by jonaja
No but I have always wanted to.
I am one of those people who find it terrifying to speak in public, so no, I have never really spoken about something I am passionate about in front of a large audience.

I have spoken at meetings etc and particularly at my Collectors Button meetings however I do not think that is what you mean.

I could not speak in front of a large audience.

You are very brave in the photo!

NO, I could never talk in public. Just the thought of it, sends shivers through me! Even having to talk in front of 2 or 3 people I don't know, would make me nervous!
