Writing a Great Speech
Did you know that a few simple tips can make the difference between a mediocre speech and a good one? The first step is to narrow down your topic. For instance, if your subject is a former president, your focus may be on his accomplishments during his term. Stating your topic in the form of a question will help you focus on the main idea. Next, create an outline so your facts are organized in the order in which you want to present them to your audience.
As you are writing, remember to use a conversational tone, and keep in mind that the facts you find most interesting will probably also appeal to your audience. Try to include anecdotes and little-known facts about your subject that they may not have heard before.
Additions such as photographs, videos and even music will enhance the audience’s experience. Lastly, practice your speech in front of family or friends for valuable feedback, such as whether you need to speak more loudly or clearly, and whether you move around too little or too much.
