HELPFUL TIP:

When planning a cast member's talents and skills, think about how genetics, personality traits (both positive attributes and flaws), past experiences, environment, and the character's roles (within a family, a community, and society) all factor into what strengths may form. These special qualities should tie into the story, not only to make the character interesting but also to help him achieve his goal.
DEFINITION:
Giving effective speeches before a live audience that persuades, educates, entertains, or is a combination of all three

DESCRIPTION:
A character who is a confident and well-prepared speaker feels at ease in front of others and can deliver opinions, entertain, or present on a topic effectively. Public speaking may be online or off, and the content of the speech may be recorded and broadcast to a larger audience.
