The importance of silence.
José Ballesteros, in his book about speeches and communication, says that silence can be a part of a speech, for example at a parents meeting in the school, one of those meetings along the academic year, for instance when the oldest students (2nd of high secondary education) finish their stance at the school.
These latter meetings resemble or remind us of the graduation at college.
These silences serve the purpose of highlighting and emphasizing what has just been said, or what’s going to be said immediately after the brief pause.
It may be interesting then to look at people in their eyes. / Photo from: speech-3137 www scienceclarified com
