With all of the political speeches these past few months, it’s made me stop and think about what works best when asked to get up and speak. My son is running for Vice President of his school and asked for help with his speech, so I was able to practice what I preach. My advice to him (and others) is to only memorize the first sentence or two of your speech and then work from an outline. The goal is to speak from the heart, but also to stay on point during your presentation. An outline does that better than writing out your entire speech and memorizing every word. I have over 50 tips and tricks on how to give a great speech and the mini book is free. Use the links below to request a copy or learn more. I am also available to work with anyone who wants help with their presentation or Powerpoint slides.
