Greatest Speeches of All Time

Glossophobia is the fear of public speaking or of speaking in general. Surveys consistently rank speaking in front of a group as our number one fear. One of the ways to combat this fear is to watch videos of the best orators ever delivering their top speeches. Below I have gathered some of my favorite addresses for you to watch. If you want to become a great public speaker, or just want to start overcoming a fear…start watching your favorite speakers.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt – First Inaugural Address

Jimmy Valvano – 1993 ESPY Speech

Winston Churchill – We Shall Fight on the Beaches (AKA Never Give Up, Never Surrender)

Lou Gehrig –  Farewell to Baseball

John F. Kennedy – Inauguration Address

Ronald Reagan – Remarks at the Brandenberg Gate

Martin Luther King, Jr – I Have a Dream
