Public Speaking Training: Course Outline

Public speaking has been the bane of existence for many a person and the key to effective public speaking is preparation. Preparation begins with identifying your audience, your audience should not have any misconceptions about your topic and you should perform a needs analysis before writing a speech, addressing the target audience and answering key questions and concerns. Now that you have identified your audience and decided on your topic, the next step is to create a basic outline of your speech or presentation, summarising the situation, identifying tasks, listing actions and the results of such actions. The key to creating a well organised speech or presentation is to keep the audience in mind, if it's too long, too complicated or too vague your audience will lose interest. It must be relevant, it must be organised and clear and concise. Categorising is one way speakers make manageable bites of complicated topics or information. For instance if your topic is a product or a plan, you could cover cost, coverage and choice of plan in three separate categories.


TIP: Some common methods of organisation are: Chronological order - in order of events. Problem/solution - begin with a statement of the problem and then explain how you intend to solve the problem. Order of location - if a number of things are happening at different sites you may want to organise your presentation in this way. Now that we have the bones it's time to flesh it out into a fully developed presentation or speech. If it is a particularly controversial topic you can give your speech credibility by using reliable sources of information and backing your statements with citations from trusted authorities. It is better to avoid verbosity and speak in simple, clear sentences - say what you mean and mean what you say. After fleshing out your speech it's time to put everything together, it is generally not a good idea to write out the speech word for word but to rather use notes which are a series of prompts. Review and edit your final presentation. On the day of the presentation, check the venue for seating, lighting and audio and make sure you have all the materials you need. If you are nervous we include several physical relaxation techniques in our Public Speaking workshop, to help you overcome your nervousness which will help you to appear confident in front of the crowd. We end off our workshop by starting off on the right foot and how to wrap up your speech and attend to the questions and answer period afterwards, such as dealing with complex questions.
