Upon the evaluation of the “Spider Informative Speech” and the “Stress Informative Speech,” there is a clear difference in the two videos. The first one relies on visual aid and uses slides and audio enhancement technology to reach the audience. The other one only uses captions and a presenter that relies on her notes to communicate with the audience. The effectiveness of these two videos will vary based on the setting.[“Write my essay for me?” Get help here.]

I consider the Spider Informative Speech to be more effective because it provides people with a picture of what the presenter says. For instance, the different slides provide the audience with additional information on the species of spiders found in Florida. A topic such as spiders requires people to use a visual aid to help in identifying what the presenter means. On the other hand, the second video has no visual aid but the use of captions. That means that the captions can only be useful the persons who watch the speech from a screen. The audience will be forced to listen to the presenter’s points. Having to keep up with her speech could prove an issue to some people, and that means the chances of miscommunication could be equally high. In addition, the Spider Informative Speech could use audio enhancement to ensure the audience can get quality sound. That makes it suitable for large audiences even when the rooms are large. The first speaker has excellent presentation skills since she manages to keep up with the slides. The only issue is when she leaves the music play for longer than is needed at the beginning of the video.

The use of slides is always considered effective when a presenter would like to keep the audiences engaged for a long. Therefore, the audience from the Informative Spider Speech is likely to access information easily as compared to the Stress Informative Speech. If I were to make part of the audience in both videos, I would find the one on spiders to be more interesting.

Response 1
The Stress Informative Speech is delivered by an excellent presented who relies on good content as well as real life examples. I would consider her presentation skills to be very effective but then her limitation arises from the lack of presentation equipment. If she were to use slides then she would have made a greater impact. In addition, she maintains a single position during the presentation and that would make some parts of the audience consider her boring. If she were to move around then that would easily compensate for lack of presentation equipment. In addition, she could have also used variation in tones to set the mood of the audience from time to time. Doing this would have made the presentation lively. However, she still managed to do a good job in delivering a presentation with a clear flow of points. [Click Essay Writer to order your essay]

Response 2
Even though the spider informative speech was better while comparing the two presentations, I still think there are some factors that would have made it better. First, the presenter should have organized herself better at the beginning by ensuring the audio and presentations are complementary. The sound was clearly in conflict with the presentation, and that could easily make the audience form a negative perception of the speaker and presentation. The first impression is always important in determining whether the audience will be attentive during the presentation. Another notable difference between the two videos is that the one on spiders uses very little to no real life experiences. The second one, on the other hand, uses many real life examples that help the audience in relating to the topic. I would also like to add that while both presentations are good, they would suit different audiences. The Spider speech would be suitable for a class setting in which student are expected to take notes. The second one could suit both a class and social meeting in which people are expected to make presentations. [Need an essay writing service? Find help here.]
