Preparing Your Speech – Narrative and Persuasive

Listen to this Post. Powered by

Narrative Type

The narrative speech is like a short story. To be good it must include an interesting event, interesting people and the narrator must be interesting. Also the sequence of events should have the audience asking ”what happen’s next?” in the same way that occurs in a good novel. 

Persuasive  or Selling Type

This is the most common form of speech given. It indentifies a need or want, or wrong which you can build a call for an action. It can be for a selfless need such as raising funding for a charity. At the other end of the scale it could be an insurance salesman explaining a new policy that will cover all your life insurance needs.

Once you have decided on your idea prepare a barnstorming finish and strong beginning. The middle bit should be a systematic process to sell your idea.
