Without mastering the art of intonation, you will not earn the laurels of a brilliant speaker (C) Ian Stein – Speakers by Candlelight.
Did you know that ‘how you say it’ can be more important than ‘what you say’? Believe it or not, that’s the way it is. According to psychologists, with the help of intonation we convey three to four times more information than with the use of words alone.
If you think about it, this is not surprising. Would you believe someone who says the words: “I am happy” if they were said in a gloomy or an indifferent tone? Remember the games from early childhood. Did we really need words to convey emotions? But emotions are crucial information. They are all the more important because they affect the depths of the subconscious.
Most speakers know very well, or at least intuitively feel, that they must correctly place emotional accents with the help of intonation. A presentation’s success largely depends on how well this is done. At the same time, unlike professional actors, online event hosts are not required to spend years learning the art of voice acting. In the vast majority of cases, it is enough to follow a few simple rules.
To successfully use intonation, it is enough for a presenter to master a relatively small set of tools, without the extremes that are needed in the acting profession or as a professional political speaker. The skillful use of the intonation arsenal will allow the host of an online event to significantly increase the presentation’s effect.
