Friends, speech writing will be very easy, if you continue reading this article. There are some very basic but very important points that to be kept in mind whole writing a speech or speaking in front of a gathering.

The speaker should be very clear of what he is saying and what the speaker wants to say?

Now, I will explain some fundamentals of better speaking and speech writing:

  • Introduction of the speech must be clear of the subject of the speech, and the audience should be clear in the introduction itself the whole structure of the speech.
  • Content of the speech: The content of the speech says about all the ingredients of the speech. Its subject, the objective of the speech. The speaker should be clear about the subject and object, then only the speaker can write a good speech.
  • Winning words: In a speech there must be some winning words that attract the gathering and compels them to listen to your speech. Like the one speech David Cameron;s speech at the the conservative party conference which was instrumental in winning the leadership of his party.Using right words and right time and in right order is also essential for a good speech.

  • Beware of any discrimination in the speech writing. The speech should be unbiased and polite.

End of the speech should be not be sudden, but it should come along the flow of the situation created by your speech. The end should be with thanks to the people and the occasion which granted an opportunity the speaker to speak.
