This exercise on writing a short speech follows on from the podcast on how to prepare and deliver a speech. It gives listeners 6 minutes of training that they can pause while they do the writing exercise for themselves. The art of public speaking comes from the practise of it.
This is a workshop on public speaking I gave to a writers group (belonging to Association of Christian Writers ACW) in September 2022. It teaches you how to write and deliver a speech. The recommendations I give come from my own experience of giving speeches. I have been a member of Toastmasters International and the Association of Speakers Clubs (based in the UK) for over 5 years.
I am sorry about the sudden beginning and ending of this podcast, but I had to edit out the group discussion which preceded and ensued so I don’t sign off properly in the edit. I’ll get it right next time.
The next blog post and tweet will have the mini-speech writing exercise.
