What do I get?

Fellow speaker,

Joe Shervell of London Speaker Bureau suggests you answer three questions in your audience's mind:

  • What? - What do you have for me?
  • So what? - Why should I care about this?
  • Now what? - OK, I care, now what do I do?

Questioning,

Write it out

Fellow speaker,

Joe Shervell of London Speaker Bureau suggests before you begin your speech your write out:

  1. Objective of your speech - Why are you giving this speech?
  2. Target audience - Why does your audience need to hear this speech? How can you make your speech relevant to everyone in your audience?
  3. Speech summary - Customize your speech summary so it matches your speech objective and is relevant to your target audience

Writing,

Developing your methaphor

Fellow speaker,

Professional speaker Nate Dunlop recommends you develop your metaphors by:
  1. Give the speech to people who know what you are talking about without using metaphors and make sure they understand it
  2. Give the speech to people who don't know what you are talking and use metaphors to get your points across. Get feedback on which metaphors made sense and which they didn't understand.
Metaphorically,
