You can use the word judicious speaker in this scenario. As per vocabulary.com -

Judicious comes from the same Latin word from which we get judge and judiciary, and not surprisingly a judicious decision is one that only comes after all sides have been weighed up and opposing points of view taken into consideration. Judicious decisions are never split-second decisions.

Example- Being a judicious speaker, he chose to remain silent.

  • but aren't we adding two words judicious and speaker, isn't there a single word for it? – murmansk May 30 '16 at 5:33
