What are the differences between Public Speaking and Conversation?

Three major differences:

  • Public speaking is more highly structured.
  • Public speaking requires more formal language.
  • Public speaking requires a different method of delivery.

 

How to develop Introduction:

1) Selecting a Topic (Brainstorming)

  • Personal interests
  • Current events and controversial issues
  • Specific subject interests
  • News and unusual angles

2) Determining general purpose

3) Determine specific purpose

Example:

Topic: Music Therapy

General purpose: To inform

Specific purpose: To inform my audience about the benefit of music therapy for people with psychological or cognitive ability.

 

4) Central idea:

The central idea is a concise statement of what you expect to say. Sometimes it is called the thesis statement, the subject statement or the major thought.

Example:

Topic: Music therapy

General purpose: To inform

Specific purpose: To inform my audience about the benefit of music therapy for people with psychological or cognitive ability.

Central idea: Music therapy developed as a formal model of treatment during the twentieth century, utilizes a number of methods, and is explained by several theories that account for its success.

 

A good introduction serves to:

■Gain the audience’s attention and willingness to listen.

■Preview the topic, purpose, and main ideas of the speech.

■ Establish your credibility to speak on the topic.

■Motivate the audience to accept your goals.

Techniques:

  • Use a Quotation
  • Pose a question
  • Tell a story
  • Use humor

 

HOW TO DEVELOP THE MAIN BODY MAIN/MAJOR POINTS:

The major points developed in the body of a speech. Most speeches contain from two to five main points.

The main points are the central features of your speech.

  • Choose them carefully
  • Phrase them precisely
  • Arrange them strategically

 

How to develop conclusion:

No matter what kind of speech you are giving, the conclusion has two major functions:

1) To let the Audience know you are ending the Speech.

Signal the end of the speech. One way is through what you say. “in conclusion,” my purpose has been,” “let me end by saying,”……

  • Crescendo Ending: A conclusion in which the speech builds to a zenith of power and intensity.
  • Dissolve Ending: A conclusion that generates emotional appeal by fading step by step to a dramatic final statement.
