MORE IDEAS FROM How To Write A Well-structured Speech

  1. Don't write without a plan. Think, research and brainstorm of what central idea will be in your speech and the topics and hooks you will integrate.
  2. Begin with the end in mind. Ask yourself what would be the message you want to retain to your audience to make the writing easier.
  3. Divide and conquer by breaking down the general message into smaller. It will be easier for you to write and the audience will not have a hard time understanding the theme.
  4. Read and rewrite the speech, then repeat. The most important in every speech is having a smooth flow so that people could follow to where you're going

What is a speech?

Just like essays, speeches have three main sections:

  • Introduction
  • Body
  • Conclusion

However, unlike essays, speeches must be written to be heard as opposed to read. It should contain some color, drama or humor.

The Art Of Public Speaking

The ability to communicate is the most crucial skill we have.

In Ancient Greece, where educators and philosophers invented language theory, public speaking was a teachable and learnable skill. They didn’t diagnose a shy person suffering from ‘speech anxiety’ to be a bad fit for learning public speaking, but simply a student who needs to learn the larger discipline of rhetoric and speech training. The Greeks had a comprehensive, practical and critical approach towards knowledge, psychology and social interaction, which is sadly missing in this modern age.

  • Choose a theme. You must know who your audience are and think of ONE thought you want to leave your audience so that they will have a greater tendency to remember it.
  • Utilize theme reinforcers or points to support the central idea (theme) they are trying to get across.
  • Wrap it all together. You can arrange it first in outline form. Numbering your points could also help the audience remember where you are. Always return to theme and leave everyone with an impact in the climax of the speech.
  • Quotes, resources and an unconventional idea can be incorporated to speeches to gain the attention of your audience.
