I agree that our current generation lacks these skills and to ensure that our future generation is strong with these must skills, we should start giving training from school itself. This essay will assert few points justifying why speaking and presenting are very important skills for anybody to grow professionally.
The profession could be any like manager in IT company or product company, politician, scientist in Nasa, or individual contributor in any project, in every day of professional life, you have to prepare presentation and speak to your manager or supervisor to elaborate your ideas. If you lack in any of these skills, you will face problem in convincing people to follow your thoughts. Also, if you dream to represent your company or town or country at any stage of your life, it is very hard without good communication skill.
Even, these skills are so important that almost all employers conduct group discussions ask you prepare report before hiring a candidate.
Then, the important question is how to become expert with these skills? We learn many of our behavior or skills either from parents or training institute. Without any doubt, parents are the first teacher for any kid. Kids learn talking and good behaviors from parents. Once they are grown up and start going to school, responsibility partially shifts from parents to school as kids mingle with many other students in school and participate in many activities like speech competition, annual functions, exhibitions etc. So, school should add special scheduled training to let students learn and practice presentation and speaking skills in public.
To conclude, speaking and presenting in public are essential skills for all to progress in professional life and school should give special attention to keep their students far away from stage fear or presenting in public.
