Public Speaking

Public speaking is the process or act of performing a speech to a live audience. Public speaking is commonly understood as formal, face-to-face speaking of a single person to a group of listeners. Traditionally, public speaking was considered to be a part of the art of persuasion. The act can accomplish particular purposes including to inform, to persuade, to entertain, and to deliver a powerful message. Additionally, differing methods, structures, and rules can be utilized according to the speaking situation.

Public speaking can serve the purpose of transmitting information, telling a story, motivating people to act or encouraging people. This type of speech is deliberately structured with three general purposes: to inform, to persuade and to entertain. Knowing when public speaking is most effective and how it is done properly is a key part in understanding the importance of it.

The following case studies demonstrate how SCMO approach has been successfully applied to client issues.

For their conference "International entrepreneur Summit" (IES) in Hong Kong, INTERNATIONAL GLOBAL NETWORK (IGN) wanted a new thought-provoking and high-impact presentation, designed especially for the purpose of instigating constructive chock, creativity, and motivation among its people around the theme of supply chain and sustainability. We tailor-made our "Convergence Singularity" presentation, which was delivered timely and successfully, to the complete satisfaction of our client. The presentation recording was actually further distributed by our client to its own customer base, as a token of its appreciation for their support, which is more original than a pen or a USB.

Our client was an international construction and engineering company that wanted to position itself on the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) market towards Chinese investors, in association with a global law firm. At a high-end VIP event, we presented to an exclusive audience of their selected Chinese prospects the results-to-date and achievements of China's BRI deployment, based on bottom-up research published in our book Transportation and the Belt and Road Initiative. As a token of their appreciation, our client gave to the attendees a copy of a special limited edition of our book Transportation and the Belt and Road Initiative, which included their logos and a message of their respective Chairman. We are led to understand that this promotional event resulted in successful canvassing from our client.

China International Logistics Fair (CILF) asked us to moderate their panel of keynote speakers on the "3rd Sea-Rail Transport & Cross-border Transportation Summit Forum-The Belt and Road-the Opportunities & Challenges of the China-Europe Block Train" in Shenzhen, China. The speakers constituted of DHL Asia Pacific CEO (Hong Kong), Shenzhen Municipality Transport Bureau Head (China), China Railways General Manager (China), UTLC ERA President (Kazakhstan), Belarus Railway President (Belarus), JSC RZD Logistics CEO (Russia), Latvian Railway President (Latvia), Port of Gdansk Authority CEO (Poland), Yuxinou (Chongqing) Logistics Co. President (China), RailLogix (The Netherlands), and Shenzhen Neptune Logistics Group CEO (China). We moderated with success each speaker and the panel discussion, to both the speakers and CILF satisfaction.

GTR Asia asked us to moderate the Technology panel of their "Tradetech Forum 2018" conference in Hong Kong. The speakers consituted of both startups and investment funds, and delivered interesting presentations timely and successfully. The panel discussion, constituted of judges from the finance and fintech industries, was led to show the strengths and weaknesses of each speaker's case study, as well as their appreciation of each intervention.

The People's Republic of China Government requested us to be a keynote speaker at their "Jiangxi Internet Conference 2018" in Fuzhou, China. We introduced Blockchain to an audience of over 500 information technology specialists, and Blockchain aficionados to both their satisfaction, and that of our client. Our keynote presentation included explanation about Blockchain strengths, weaknesses, appropriate uses, immutability limits, and presented some cases studies accordingly.

MAYBANK asked us to participate as a keynote speaker to their "MAYBANK - ICBC Invest Asia 2019" conference in Singapore. Our intervention took the form of a panel discussion with Singapore EDB director about "the impact of trade wars on global and South East Asia supply chains" led by a professional moderator from BLOOMBERG. The one hour intervention was an interaction rich of content, interesting to the audience of bankers, securities and investment funds, and impactful enough that they would jump on their seat at the end of the intervention, as instructed by our client and to their satisfaction.

Let your speech be better than silence, or be silent.
