Writing speeches and delivering presentations are extremely important as they always need to communicate a message succinctly and effectively, however, they can often be difficult to get right.
Whilst every speech is written with a different purpose in mind, the tools required to write a powerful speech or presentation can be replicated across any topic, for any setting. Knowing which techniques to employ and how to write in an appropriate style for the specific occasion and audience is crucial for writing a truly impactful speech.
This highly interactive one-day training course, with former diplomat and award-winning speechwriter Charles Crawford, will feature a lively combination of presentations and powerful examples of best and worst practice to learn from.
Attend to gain practical and personalised advice on how to structure, format and achieve the right tone for your speech, in order to master the process of writing words to be spoken aloud, rather than read.
NB: Delegates will be asked to prepare a short speech or presentation in advance of the course. Volunteers will be asked to deliver their speech on the day and the group will discuss feedback, using the tools learnt throughout the day.
