Project Outline

  • The goal of this project is to prepare and deliver a speech of one of the four main types :  informative, persuasive, entertaining (or special  occasion) and technical / demonstrative.
  • The speech should have one key or central message that should act as a take-away, and the rest of the speech should be built in support of that central message, with a “general purpose” acting as a connecting thread throughout the whole speech. The core message should be supported by two or three points of roughly equal importance and time.
  • The opening of the speech should address the audience’s question “What is in for me?” “Why should I listen to you?” in the first minute, preferably first 30 seconds.
  • The closing should act as a wrap up, summarizing the main points and reinforcing the core message.
  • If there’s a lectern or podium, this is the last speech that can be done behind it.
