I'm doing an informative speech for a class on unsolved crimes, D.B. Cooper being one of the main topics. However I don't know how I am supposed to cite my information since it is an informative speech and all of the information regarding the case will be research I've done online. Therefore, most of my speech will be information about the events of the hijacking. How do I decide what needs to be cited or not?
For my speech communications class, we are about to get into the special occasion speech unit. I am heaving trouble thinking of specific ideas for my speech. We were given the basic general topics (acceptance, toast, eulogy, etc.) But I can't seem to think of a specific topic. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
I want to improve my public speaking skill and I have read Dale Carnegie's book "How to Win Friends and Influence People" previously. So, I want to read his book on public speaking to improve my skill. I don't have the time to read both of the books he wrote on the topic as I have some presentations to make soon. Between "The Art of Public Speaking" and "How to Develop Self-Confidence And Influence People" which one should I read to get a quick confidence boost. If these two books contain different aspects of public speaking, which one should I read first?
You've been nominated for an award and now you have to give an acceptance speech. It might be an Academy Award where the whole world is watching or it might be an award for best coach in your little league. Regardless, it's still important and you would like to look good while giving this speech.
So, how to give an award acceptance speech? It is an opportunity to put a spotlight on ideas you care about, to thank the people who helped you win the award and to give your audience at least one take away.
Therefore, don't blow it. Don't wait until the last minute with the preparation and don't make excuses.
And if you don't win… well maybe you will use the acceptance speech next year or next time. So, today I am going to give you practical tips on how you can prepare for your award acceptance speech. Read more about it here.
I want to create a really pervasive speech that stands out to people. Is there anything that I should change or add to make it a great speech? (I am going to record it btw)
Hey guys! My name is ______, and I'm a rising high school senior. One thing I want you guys to know about me - I love twitter. I've spent hours surfing obscure meme accounts and commenting on important political debates, debating everything from Obamacare to Donald Trump’s hair. As an intern for my local assemblyman, I learned about the impact that social media has on awareness. After realizing that I could make a real impact on the community around me, I decided to explore my passions in economics and finance. The most important thing that i love is politics. politics has been involved in every passion in my life. to be honest, i think that's amazing - in fact, i didn't even know much about politics until a year or two ago, as an intern in Assemblyman Karabinchak’s office. and that's something i want to change as a member of the e-board - i want to increase high school engagement in politics. our options are limited now, but with our organization's vast resources, we can help people like me and you discover politics at an early age. let's get more people involved. let's fight for the protection of human rights for all. let's fly high together. remember the name - _____________ for membership director."
