"Language is communication. Communication is about meaning. When meaning is lost, communication becomes useless." ~E..O. Akinrinade
Maybe you are the next orator the world is waiting for. Maybe you are already preparing yourself for an opportunity to deliver that eloquent and powerful speech. Then, wait and read!
Sometimes, we have the Right Message, the Right Audience but we end up using a Bad Language. Bad language not in terms of rudeness or correctness in pronounciation, but to speak in the tongues of elite to a locally educated gathering is nothing but error.
Don't get carried away by how smooth and sweet your message is without asking the question "will my audience understand?"
Communication is not complete until the message is understood.
Although the message is attributed to you but the truth is, it belongs to your audience. So, put them in mind as you prepare for that great speech.
I wish you a beautiful future on this road you have chosen to venture.
