Overview

These three ingredients are the elements that make the overall speech a success. Ensuing these vital elements are included in the speech prepared will help the individual deliver a complete and wholesome presentation.
Get Prepared
In the preparation stage, it would be wise for the designer of the speech to have some knowledge about the audience the speech is being presented to. Armed with this knowledge, the individual can then work on the content that would be suitable for the audience palate. Failing to incorporate this delicate yet important feature into the content preparation, may cause the entire speech to be poorly received. This poor reception could be due to several reasons such as inability to understand the subject matter, inability to understand the jargon used no interest in the subject matter and any other negative connotations that would affect the concentration span of the audience.
When commencing on the researching stage, it would be a good idea to ensure all information sourced, is done so in a manner that accredits the authenticity of the information given. This is very important, as the speech content should not be left open to the possibility of dispute by the listening audience. There is nothing worse, than having an audience that challenges every fact being presented.
Ensuring the content itself is interesting and engaging will help to keep the audience entranced in the session, thus assuring its success. The presentation style, the research done and the content design all contribute to the eventual success of the entire endeavor. Therefore equal care should be given to all these areas when designing a speech.
Chapter 2:
Write An Appealing Speech
Synopsis
One of the best ways to write an appealing speech is to attend and observe as many different types of presentations as possible. This will give the individual a chance to make careful observations on the various aspects of the speech, its presentation and the presenter itself.
Putting It On Paper
The following are some elements to consider when trying to write, an appealing speech that will ensure the complete attention and participation of the listening audience:
• Making observations as to the types of contents used and how it is put together, will give the individual an idea of what would appeal to the audience. Matter such as the flow, the timing and the humor injected in to speech is something definitely worth observing and learning.
• Deciding on a theme based on the research done about the audience and their interest, the individual can then come up with interesting and “meaty” content material. The match between the audience and the material to be presented must be accurate, as any mismatch would eventually result in the entire speech being a disaster.
• Making the impactful points, with the use of visual aids, may help to reinforce the points being made. More often than not, material that includes visual emphasis provides the extra interesting element that would help to encourage the audience to pay closer attention to what is being featured.
• Another important point most people forget to consider is how long the duration of the speech should ideally be. When this
information is known, then the individual can design the speech in a way that includes, humor, visual presentation, and interactive sessions if the particular style calls for it, and perhaps even the inclusion of physical demonstrations to further cement the impact the speech is meant to make.
Chapter 3:
Overcome The Fear Of Public Speaking
Synopsis
Most public speaking engagements require the presenter to be well prepared for any unveiling scenario, and the more practice the individual has in making speeches, the better he or she will get at doing it. However as everyone has to start somewhere, it may be better to follow a few guidelines penned by those who are very experienced in the area.
Be Confident
The following are some recommendation that should be seriously considered if the individual intends to overcome the fear of public speaking and be impactful in the presentation style:
• One of the most popular advice items given would be to start with smaller groups of people and try to use these opportunities to build on the experience. The initial small group should ideally consist of familiar people such as family members and friends, as they are more likely to give the individual true, clear and helpful criticism should there be any need for it. This constructive criticism will help the individual work on the weaknesses and capitalize on the strengths, thus making better public speaking exercises with each new effort.
• Preparing well, ahead of time, is also another element that will help to calm the frazzled nerves of the individual and allow him or he
