How to Prepare For a Great Speech

What is the idea of your speech? To inform? To influence? To entertain? Once you know the main purpose of his speech you can start to prepare for your speech. Anyone who can speak for five minutes. The problem is leaning how to stop for five minutes and still have full speech. Before we begin, let me outline four key steps to prepare, which are explained in detail below.

1. Where to start?

In examining speech, decide what your goals are and given all their preparations. For example, if you submit a funny speech, will be looking for funny stories that you can use. If you want to inspire, you have inspiring stories etc. 
Most of the time will have to find a small niche in the theme and build your speech around it. Trying to go too wide will make a speech boring and too long. Two or three ideas are the most that can be transmitted in a short speech. In some cases, better keep him on an idea with a few points. I'm trying to say too much just make you have to talk really fast and still not get the topic covered. You can run your idea to talk to the person who makes the call, just to be sure that you understood what was expected.

2. What can I say?

Now, when we decided what we are talking about, let's put the ideas into a logical structure. What aspects of your topic to talk, and more importantly, you will not miss? Most topics contain enough information for a series of presentations, so unless we're talking about a very specific question, you'll need to do some pruning.

3. What is best to use?

The best way is to start by recording all aspects of the topic, and then slow them structuring of the main points you would like to find and decide which points will be discarded.

With knowledge of the areas in which you want to improve public speaking you can start to improve in these areas before your next speech. This can be done through training and also through visualization.

4. How can I really get results with this presentation?

Eye Contact - Using natural, direct eye contact helps the audience feel connected with you.
Gestures - gestures can help you paint pictures with words, but make sure you do not get in the way and they are natural.
Enthusiasm - Be enthusiastic. If I do not care, because your audience? Your enthusiasm builds enthusiasm of the audience.
Bias - Show your words clearly so that the members of your audience will understand
Breathe - Breathing helps you control anxiety. It also gives you time to gather his thoughts. Remember that a pause can be used to provide care.
Posture - posture conveys confidence
Language - Use appropriate language and be careful not to use it without words and fillers such as "um" and "uh" too often.
Smile - a smile will not only make you look and feel better, but to your viewers more receptive.

Finally, Do not leave the podium immediately after having finished his speech. Number 15 in your head before leaving the podium. If there is an opportunity for questions, it always engages the audience more to respond to the podium than to return to sitting position and try to answer question.
