Tips on How to Write a Speech for Your Presentation…

What To WriteWhen writing a speech, you should try to know the audience and then determine the overall goal of your presentation. Learn some useful writing tips from the following Youtube videos on writing techniques.

Remember when you write a speech, you have to first know who your audience is.  You want to make sure that you know what the goal of the presentation is too.

Try to provide great take-home value for your speech. Create a presentation that makes change for which it can help people to improve their lives, to improve their productivity, and to improve the overall outlook on how they face the challenge of every day.

Write the speech in three parts: the beginning, the middle, and the end. If it’s going to be about an hour speech, then write it into eight to ten-minute segments.  That’s about how long you can keep somebody locked in on one particular point or subject before having to transition into another point or angle.
