How To Write a Good Speech

To start, I suggest that you begin by reading the free ebook or some guides on effective speech writing online. These speech writing help guides are usually available for free, and will really train you understand the basics of writing well. Reading first a guide to writing effective speeches will be very beneficial for you!

How To Write a Good Speech: Essentials


Learning
how to write a good speech is about learning how to visualize the speech being read out loud in front of many people. To start, you need to be precise and sure about the following:
  • Topic - Learning how to write a good speech involves knowing WHAT it is that you should talk about. In essence, what is the over-all message of your speech?
  • Audience - To whom is you speech addressed?
  • Context - Where and when will the speech be delivered? How long should it be? Where will your audience be coming from before they listen to your speech? This is a very important aspect of learning how to write a good speech that many people forget.


How To Write a Good Speech: Introduction

After taking note of the three things mentioned above, the next step in writing a good speech is thinking of a good introduction. Your introduction is the f
irst thing that people will hear. More often than not, your introduction will help people decide whether they should listen to your speech until the very end, or make excuses (e.g. going to the washroom) to avoid listening to your speech. Learning how to write good speeches is about STARTING WITH A BANG.

Effective introductions include stories, anecdotes, powerful quotes, etc.


How To Write a Good Speech: Body
Now that you've captured your audience's attention, the next step is to inspire them with what you have to say. The key to learning how to write a good speech body is learning how to write and of course, speak with passion. No matter how good your introduction was, a lame speech due to lack of passion will always be a bad speech. Use powerful words to keep the interest of your audience. In the first part, How To Write a Good Speech: Essentials, it was mentioned that context is very important to take note. Now, use this knowledge to think of the best ways to approach your audience.

Another thing: simplify, simplify, simplify! Unless you are delivering your speech to a bunch of extremely smart people, it's always best to use the simplest versions of words as much as possible.


How To Write a Good Speech: Ending
One of the more important parts to master in learning how to write a good speech is that of writing a good ending. This is the last thing that your audience will hear, and this is what your audience will remember. Reserve your most powerful lines for this part. Make your audience shiver. Make the hair on the back of their necks stand! This is what you will be remembered for. This will be your legacy. Oftentimes, this part will separate memorable speeches from another waste of people's precious time.

As much as starting with a bang is important, never ever forget to END WITH A BANG.



BANG.

  4. Something I found useful is that it really helps to speak it all out loud during the writing process. Things are always different when you speak them. You get a feel for what works well and when it is dragging. The other thing is *practice* If you are the person delivering the speech - practice it. A good speech will be comfortable like an old pair of shoes - but like a pair of shoes you have to break them.
