The Secrets of Successful Speech Making


Giving a speech is a unique opportunity to convey your values, beliefs and style to a captive audience. It puts you in a highly privileged position: for a brief moment, you are the only person in control of what is said, and all eyes and ears are on you. Some people relish such an opportunity. Others view it with dread. A little thought and preparation can help you connect with your audience from your first sentence and keep your listeners with you all the way, turning a challenge into a triumph.
