How to prepare a speech
To begin with, clearly define the priority thought that you need to convey to the audience. This will help you formulate speeches. And listeners will more easily understand and assimilate the received information, as well as form their own attitude to the subject of public discussion. During the planning of speech, decide what exactly you want to inform the audience.
In the second stage of preparation, determine the logical structure of your public speech. Based on the most important thesis of the report, prepare the introduction one by one, then the main and final part. Approximately 20% of the report can be distinguished for entry into conclusion. And so that the main information does not fall on the listeners like a snowball, pay special attention to the introductory part. You can start it with a small story, an interesting fact, or even a question. In the final part summarize what was said and briefly repeat the voiced ideas. In the main part should be placed the main points of the speech.
Try to back up your theses with facts and statistics. This method is widely distributed and used in business presentations, serving as excellent evidence for verbal information. Just do not overdo it with statistics and accuracy so that yourspeech did not turn into an almost mechanical reproduction of facts and mathematical formulas. So instead of saying “49.4%”, you'd better stop at the simplified expression “almost half”. And of course the statistical information should be reliable. If you don’t know or don’t remember the value of any value, it’s better not to take numbers from the ceiling, otherwise there may be desperate fans of statistics among your cases.
Use visual tools. When a presentation includes a lot of statistics, it’s best to place them on slides. Graphs and charts from slides are very well remembered. On the slides, you can also place the main theses and points of the speech, which, in your opinion, are important for the audience to memorize. The data depicted on the slides must necessarily be clear and legible, otherwise listeners will be reluctant to pay attention to blurry pictures. The font should be large enough, and the font color should not merge with the background or approach it with a touch. It's all.
