The goal of any speaker is that when they give their speech, their audience hangs on their every word. In order to make this happen, we need to find ways to organize our speech so that we can both capture and hold our audience's attention from start to finish.
What you'll find inside:
Every speech has to start out well, and this is a great opportunity to do some bragging about yourself to your audience. Al Gore has some tips for us so that we can understand what budgets we have to spend during our speech. If you get asked to give more than one speech in a day, you're going to have to know how to manage your voice for the duration.
If you want your next speech to make an impression then you are going to have to find a way to inspire your audience. This all starts with how you plan on capturing your audience's attention. Networking with your audience is the key to getting them to listen to what you are going to be telling them.
Everything you do starts from the moment that the curtain goes up. What your audience thinks of you is often determined by the introduction. If you get asked to deliver a keynote, then you are going to need to get some guidance on how to create and deliver one successfully.
In the end, it's how you choose to organize your speech that will determine the impact that it will have on your audience. Carefully creating a speech that has all of the parts that you are going to need in order to capture your audience's attention is what is going to make your next speech memorable.
