Course Development — The workshop modules follow a systematic and logical arrangement. This structure helps to ensure that the course material allows the facilitators to deliver the course in a logical arrangement. Consider the subjects as building bricks into learning, our facilitators slowly build towards a comprehensive picture of this entire topic.
A speech should as a rule of thumb have an introduction, five main points with corroborating evidence such as quotes, illustrations, statistics, and anecdotes; and a conclusion. Use a structure or outline the speech using bullet points.
Basic Types of Speeches
- Persuasive Speech.
- Entertaining Speech.
- Motivational Speech.
- Impromptu Speech.
- Oratorical Speech.
- Debate Speech.
- Informative Speech.
- Demonstrative Speech.
Here are some tips for writing a speech:
- Put forth the main ideas. Do not try to place too many ideas into the speech.
- Write the speech just as how one talks. Keep in mind that it is a speech, not an essay.
- Use Examples. Concrete details keep people interested.
- Get Facts accurately.
- Persuade With a Classic Structure.
Speeches usually serve four general goals: to inform, persuade, educate, or entertain. By not being bogged down by the details and taking a look at the big picture to consider the general purpose of the speech, a speaker strengthens his or her thoughts and ideas by ensuring that everything presented to make the speech align to that general purpose.
Features of Effective Speech-Writing
- Greet the audience in a friendly manner.
- Introduce oneself
- Use informal language & slang, while keeping in mind on context and the audience
- Involve the audience – personal pronouns / ask questions / interactive
- Use humour.
- Talk about celebrities & cartoon characters.
- Include pauses & gestures.
- Facts & statistics.
There are three main types of speeches, but the type that a speaker delivers will depend on the speech’s objective. The three main types of speeches are informative, persuasive, and special occasion.
An ideal start on a speech will include the following essential structure elements: General Purpose, Specific purpose, Central Idea, and Main Points in Parallel Format. Before making the speech in detail, understand the purpose of the speech in the first place.
Deliver a speech casually and in the natural tone. It helps the audience to listen and understand the message precisely. Another essential feature of a good speech is that it is unbiased and unemotional. The speaker’s emotion may drive him away from the central theme.
Write a quick sketch of the main points to be put forth n the speech. Label these with Roman numerals and highlight them in bold as postmarks when delivering the speech for easy reference. For a three-minute speech, five main points are sufficient.
Here are seven practical methods as an icebreaker to start the speech well:
- Open with a relevant quote can help set the mood for the rest of the speech.
- Powerful Statement/Phrase.
- “What If” Scenario. Immediately drawing the audience into the speech works wonders.
- “Imagine” Scenario.
Start the speech with a Bang by the following methods:
- Use a statistic. Make sure that it is correct before using it.
- Ask a question – a rhetorical question or a question that is guaranteed to have a response by the audience.
- Tell a personal story.
- Start with a joke.
Begin a speech with a formal greeting, or a religious greeting or another formal way to state “good morning.” Although it can be as simple as saying “good morning” only, you need to consider the oldest or the one who has the higher status who attends your speech.
A lousy speech will add little or no evidence to support the message. For the audience to buy into the speech, provide facts that support the ideas put forth in the speech. Without these facts, the speech is simply an opinion and has little credibility.
However, a speech becomes effective when it fulfils these features:
- Clarity. Clarity is a basic characteristic of a good speech.
- Definiteness of Message.
- Informal Touch.
- Considering the Audience.
- Speaking Slowly.
- Free from Emotions.
There are some standard guidelines which can help to make a guided guess at about how many words required for a speech. The general speed for a speech is 100 to 200 words per minute. Hence, a 10-minute speech would require 1,000 to 2,000 words.
Typically, speeches will range from 100–150 words per minute, depending on variables. Hence, a 3-minute speech should contain 300–450 words. Therefore, aim to write about 360–380 words, then practice speaking those words with a timer.
A 5-minute speech is roughly 750 words, depending on the pacing of the speaker. The average person talks at a speed of 125-150 words per minute—meaning 5 minutes of talking would entail about 625-750 words: the length of a blog article.
An average person can speak 150-180 words per minute. Hence three minutes would be in the region of 450 to 550 words, or wherever from 20 to 40 sentences. This speed is depending upon the complexity of the sentence construction and the familiarity with the subject matter.
Here are some landmark greetings to the audience for a speech to sound professional:
- Good evening members of the board.
- Hello ladies and gentlemen.
- Good morning members of the jury.
- Good afternoon esteemed guests.
