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.
