Last week at my Toastmasters International speaking club, London Corinthians I spoke on how to construct a speech. Every speech ought to have a beginning, middle and end. Here's some of the write up from the club's newsletter:
Finally, our fourth speaker of the evening was Jeremy Jacobs with an Advanced Speech entitled ‘How to construct a speech’ here he gave us a very insightful and informative training session on how to construct a speech. A successful speech requires a sound structure from the beginning, the middle to the end. He advised us to make a statement at the beginning of our speech. To include facts and opinion in the middle through, to having a summary or a call to action at the end. Unless, you are very good Jeremy states, don’t make a joke and keep away from politics, religion or sex. Always keep the audience engaged, it’s not about you, it’s all about them.
