How To Make A Memorable Speech
|Career : Career Techniques|
Memorable speeces - these are the ones where, after a day of conference lectures, the delegates go away and can actually remember what one of the speakers says.
It may sound cruel, but how many times have you attented presentations only to remember precious little of what was said at the end of the day?
To avoid this fate yourself, you need to remember to have a few key messages you want to make, then not go into too much extra detail.
Why? Due to attention span, partly, and because you don't want to give a lecture instead.
If you have three key points you want to make and ensure you get into people's heads - and do so - then that's actually a big success of your speech.
Tip: try to add a little wit and humour. Why? It keeps people interested in what you are saying, and in addition to that, it makes it more likely for them to remember your serious points.
