The purpose of this question is to ensure I project my voice to a broader area, and that it is clear and concise. I will be starting a career in public speaking, and besides drill instructors, I have never seen people speak loudly with enthusiasm for an extended period. Therefore, my goal is to emulate them or learn some techniques to do the same.
Thank you for your guidance in advance!

Steve, my goal is to emulate Steve Ballmer. He is the most energetic and passionate speaker I have seen on camera. A close second is Eric Thomas, who is a motivational speaker.
