Writing a good speech!

When you are invited to speak – Fear takes over. Oh no!

How to overcome the fear?  Write a good, no great speech! It takes time – it takes effort – but is worth it – why?

Creating common ground with an audience is like clearing a pathway from their heart to yours.

What does your audience care about? Do you have some good stories to share?

Of course, you do! Take the time – to think about how you can engage and inspire your friends and co-workers. What did it take you to get where you are today? What tips can you give them?

Did you make mistakes along the way – OF COURSE, you did – you’re human.

Share the good, the bad and the ugly. They will love you for it.

Now, get cracking – a great speech takes time, so just start with your first draft and take it from there.
