how to design a GREAT speech
We’ve all suffered through enough bad speeches
horrible slides, and
poorly organized advice.
They waste time ! and oxygen!
Even a bad speech can be improved with with a good template
Use this 8-step template to design a kick-ass speech for keynotes,
team meetings, or sales pitches,
even when promoting your favourite charity.
#1A short opening to connect (humour, bold claim, or relevant story)
z #2 describe a problem you know they have (include facts, statistics, trends, or quotes)
z #3share your story (or a client example) about overcoming that problem
present a new approach or way of thinking z #4
motivate them to take action z #7
z #8deliver your closing thought (personal story, question, or challenge)
And then stand back and…
enjoy your standing ovation!
