1. Preparing for an unprepared speech

=============================================

A "shy" school girl was asked to take part in a regional impromptu speech competition. Being really shy on one hand and very confident on the other, she chose to do what she has always done - face her challenges head-on. Well, that little girl was me, and I this experience and many others, are detailed in my ebook, "Say It With Confidence" and are combined with my practical knowledge and skills. Read more

=============================================

2. Three viewpoints to avoid

=============================================

When giving a speech, especially where you need to get some points, try and avoid strong views on these 3 subjects. This because it will be very easy to win enemies since people are normally emotional about these things.

1. Politics

2. Religion

3. Sexual orientation

Oh, and sport-;)

==============================================

3. Some of my favourite quotes on impromptu speeches

==============================================

“Many go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after."

~ Henry David Thoreau

"There are always three speeches, for every one you actually gave. The one you practiced, the one you gave, and the one you wish you gave."

~ Dale Carnegie

"No one ever complains about a speech being too short!"

~ Ira Hayes

=============================================

4. Our Vision and purpose

=============================================

Here in http://www.public-speaking-solutions.com, we believe in the power of words. We believe in the absolute necessity and importance of enhanced & effective delivery of speeches to create better understanding, empowerment and information. Talk should teach, guide, heal, empower and inspire. It should not destroy, demean, lie, gossip, cheat, swear, or destroy - that kind is cheap and useless. That is our vision and that is what we stand for.
