Lay out of your speech!

· Body- Must state your points relating to each other and make it flow. Don’t go off topic.
· Conclusion- Sum it all up-you must end of your speech with another catchy sentence or a retorical question which will leave the audience in thought.
In your body you should include this layout that the picture shows at the bottom
How to write a speech
Without a purpose your speech has no meaning. Try and understand why you are speaking and what it is about.
To help find the purpose of your speech, give it a title, that really sums your speech up.
To make this easy for you, write it in bullet points and remember, no one knows what you have written so if you make a mistake, no one will know but you so just run with it.
Make sure your palm cards aren't to big as they are just a guidelines for your speech! But also make sure they are not to small so you are able to fit a couple of sentences on the palm card
How many palm cards!?
Make sure you don't have to many palm cards, as they are suppose to be guidelines, not written word to word. You might find it very hard to hold when you have a lot of palm cards.
Voice- Pace, pitch and punch
When speaking, you need to make sure you don't rush through your speak like a maniac for this we create less interest and be quite hard to understand what you are saying. However, you have to make sure that you don't speak really slowly as this will create no interest and might put the audience to sleep!! You must keep your voice at a moderate pace, that will help the audience understand what you are saying and emphasis more on what you are saying. You can however say some words really important slowly. This helps those words sink in to the audiences mind and linger there whilst you say the rest of the speak.
Make sure that when you are speaking that you are not fixed to the ground or moving around like you have to go to the toliet. Instead act like you would be when you are talking to some of your friends. Moving a bit here and there.
