Speech Writing - 9 May 2017

9th May 17

Numbers are strictly limited to a maximum of 10 participants

“I need to make a speech!” - six little words that can make for a bad week. But there is a way to survive and even enjoy it. Drawing on two decades of experience in ministerial offices and public sector departments, Dennis provides a guide to how to produce a speech that gets the job done and more:

  • how to open strongly
  • how to say what you mean
  • how to make it memorable
  • how to use facts
  • how to close with a punch
  • what to avoid
  • how to stay sane and get the job done.

A practical and activity-based course that will take the terror out of writing speeches and make experienced speech writers into better ones.

You will benefit by

  • identifying the key characteristics of a speech
  • understanding the way speaker and audience interact
  • being able to write a strong opening and closing
  • structuring the speech to suit your audience
  • writing a speech another speaker will be comfortable giving
