Tips for Effective Speech Writing
Speech writing is just like writing a paper but you don't have to be too meticulous about the punctuations and spellings since no one will check your writing and you will deliver it orally.
The first tip is to not use words that are difficult to pronounce and words that you do not know the meaning. This may just lead to wrong pronunciation which can be embarrassing when delivering the speech.
You should know the time limit of your speech. If there is no time limit, you should make your speech brief yet informative.
You should also know your audience. Let the audience guide you on the tone that you will use for your speech.
The start of your speech should be an attention grabber. You can introduce yourself and tell the audience what you are going to talk about. An anecdote, an interesting fact or a joke is a good way to grab the attention of the audience.
Organizing your speech into major points is also a good idea. By doing this, you will know the importance of each points and you will know what points to prioritize. If there are too many points and you do not have enough time, you can delete the lesser important items.
You can add facts, quotes, supporting materials and statistics to back up the main points of your speech. And remember to have a smooth transition in between the opening, the main body and the closing of your speech.
Your conclusion should summarize the whole speech and restate the main idea or purpose of the speech. Keep it brief and concise so that it can have a lasting impression on the audience.
