Examples of Great Public Speaking
ted talks
If you don't already know, I am a great fan of Ted Talks.  What a wonderful opportunity to learn about new ideas in less than 15 minute presentations!

I often listen to them as I take my daily walks, so some I watch and for some, I just listen. This past week, I listened to one that demonstrated all of the elements of a great speech. 

1. Attention getting opener (story)
2. Repetitive words to make a point ("vermiculite")
3. Excellent use of pausing and pacing to gain the audience's attention and convey information. 

This talk showed superior Verbal and Vocal elements. I'd love to hear your feedback after you listen to it.

I want to make sure I understand your question correct.
