So here you go – three steps to writing your speech in just a few minutes. The key is you’re not going to write the whole thing out word for word. You’re simply going to write an outline. Grab a notecard and here you go:


Step 1.

Think about your audience. Why are they coming to listen to you? Why are they there in the first place and what details will they want to hear? All speaking starts with serving your audience.

Step 2.

Consider the three main points you want to get across during your presentation. Just list them on your notecard in the order that makes the most sense for getting your point across and helping your audience understand what they want to know.


Step 3.

Decide how you’re going to begin and end. Start with what’s known as an attention-getter, something compelling to get your audience interested in your topic. You could ask a question or share a quotation. Then, at the end you’re your speech, finish strong. What do you want your audience to do right now and later? For example, do you want them to sign up for something now, and later remember to click a verification link in their email for example? Tell them. Be specific.
