How to Pick the Right Topic


Working with Restrictions
In some cases, you will have a great deal of leeway when it comes to topic
selection. That is, you might be going into the speech with no set topic and few
restrictions on the length and subject matter, so that you can do almost anything
you want to.

In other cases, you may be working with significant restrictions. For instance, if
you’re delivering a speech at a wedding as the best man, you will have both time
restrictions and content restrictions.

With this said, the fact that restrictions exist shouldn’t worry you. But you should
be careful to pin down the extract restrictions before you get started. Here’s a list
of some things you should consider that might place restrictions on your speech:

i. The Subject Matter. Are you delivering a eulogy? Are you giving an
academic presentation? Are you delivering a speech at a wedding? Or
are you giving a presentation to your coworkers, clients, or boss about
your area of expertise? All of these will place different restrictions on
the content of your speech. Make sure you know exactly how this will
restrict your presentation, so that you can take this into the account in
the writing stage.
