Wants some tips on writing and giving a speech

Topic: General

Question

January 24, 2004

Hi, my name is Amber and I am a freshman at my high school. This year I a joined club called FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) and so far, I am enjoying it. Well the reason I e-mailed you is because Districts is coming up, and this year I have chose Public Speaking. I have to write a speech on FBLA Goals, that lasts up to 5:00 minutes. I love to write and I'm good at projecting my voice. I also don't have much stage fright, but I have never written a speech before. I basically was wondering, since I have been searching all day and have been unable to find, is basically just some tips. Tip on how to get me started on a speech. Tips on words to use and not to use. Tips what to do while giving a speech and tips on not what to do while giving a speech. I haven't been able to find much what I am looking for and I was wondering if you could help me out. I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

Answer

Did you try the Computerized Speech Writer at:
http://www.school-for-champions.com/speechwriting/speech_writing_aid.htm?

That can help you lay out the structure of a simple speech. You want to have an introduction where you tell just a little about yourself and what you will talk about. Then in the body, you can explain the goals of the FBLA and give a few examples. Then summarize the major points.

Also take a look at Being Introduced to Speak. A good introduction can help your speech.

I wouldn't worry about what words to use. Just be yourself. Before you speak, give the audience a little time to get settled. That always helps.

Best wishes in giving your speech. I am sure you will do a great job.
