Integrated communication refers to the energy public speakers bring to their presentation through the excitement of their voice, the sincerity of their face, their body language and gestures, and the intensity of their connection with listeners. When used together, these dimensions of integrated communication can create a powerful public speech. When communication is not integrated, a public speaker’s verbal communication often does not match his or her nonverbal signals. For example, imagine a news anchor who smiles while talking about an accident caused by a drunk driver or a speaker persuading an audience to travel to Hawaii with a monotone voice and lackluster appearance.
