Steps to an Inspiring and Memorable Speech

1. Have a point.

2. Think about structure. Tell the audience early on in your speech what you plan to tell.

3. Connect. Imagine as if your relationship with the audience began before you arrived and will continue after you leave.

4. Write poetry, not prose. Write each new thought begins on a new line to make it look like a poem.

5. Tell a story that you could incorporate with your speech and the audience reflect upon.

6. Rewrite and practice. Improve and revise if you're reusing the same material.

7. Leave them wanting more. Do not prolong to longer speeches. Instead, finish it earlier to involve your audience.

RELATED IDEAS

  • 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.

Voice as an important tool

Your voice influences the impact of your speech and can make or break its success. 
With some guidance, you can learn to use your voice to increase your power and persuasiveness in any conversation or speech that you give.

1. Prepare on your:

  • Kind of speech - What is this speech for?
  • Audience - Who are they and what are their interests?
  • Impact - What do I want my audience to feel?
  • Point of View - What are my perspectives on this topic?
2. Organize. Follow a framework to keep yourself and your audience focused: introduction, preview, body, recap, Q&As, conclusion.

3. Present with Passion. Don't just stand the entire speech, deliver it with some compassion, humor, and style.
