You can try a variety of techniques to get your mental juices flowing, from clustering to free writing. Even just talking through your ideas with another person as a sounding board is a great way to get ideas. • Once you start to get an idea of your topic, do a little preliminary research. See what others may have written or said about your general topic; reading their ideas may help give you some new ideas or directions of your own.

This process helps you develop a more robust thesis. Painting depicting a lecture in a knight academy. View on Boundless.com Free to share, print, make copies and changes.

  • Preparing a Speech: A Process Outline > Steps of Preparing a Speech Wording the Speech • Use the ABC approach to begin your first draft. The Abstract explains your thesis. The Body features your main points and supporting evidence. The Conclusion contains your final thoughts and reiterates your point. • Make sure to have all of your notes and research close by and easily accessible so you can turn to your sources as often as you need to while your draft your speech. • Editing and revising are not the same thing. To edit, review your speech for changes. To revise, actually implement those changes. Editing and revising are cyclical in nature as you continue to hone your draft. • If on your first draft you find yourself going off on a tangent, allow yourself to Handwritten speech notes by President Ronald Reagan View on Boundless.com follow it. You can always edit, revise and remove sections later that are wordy or off-topic. • Writer's block can happen to even the best writers.

  • Preparing a Speech: A Process Outline > Steps of Preparing a Speech Preparing to Present • Determine how you will present your speech: will you read it verbatim, memorize it, or read from an outline of notes? • Reading verbatim has both its positives and negatives. On the plus side, you'll have your entire speech written out in front of you; however, these types of speeches tend to feel a bit stilted to audience members. • Memorizing your speech can seem like a weighty task, but it allows you to retain all of your key points and wording while still appearing natural and effortless to your audience. It frees you from having to read right off of a manuscript. • When speaking extemporaneously, you can have a rough outline of your notes. You might have this on a single sheet or perhaps across several notecards. In A student rehearses his speech. View on Boundless.com either case, these serve as reminders about your topic, your points and in what order they should be shared. • If you're nervous about presenting in front of a group of people for the first time, work out your nerves by asking a small group of friends or colleagues to be your test audience. Your test audience can give you immediate feedback on what you did well and how you could improve. • Ever wonder what you look like while giving a speech? Practice in front of a mirror, or better yet: record yourself. You'll be able to see if you have any unconscious gestures or habits that you can correct or prevent as you feel them happening.

  • Preparing a Speech: A Process Outline > Steps of Preparing a Speech Delivering the Speech • Make sure you dress to impress. While some speeches may be delivered in a casual setting, you want to make sure you're wearing clothing appropriate to the dress code of your event. • Be aware of your body language. A closed body position (arms crossed, shoulders hunched) and lack of eye contact will make it extremely difficult for your audience to engage with you. • Engage your audience by making eye contact with them. If making eye contact wigs you out, you can always look just above their heads to give the same effect. • Stand up straight, remember to breathe, and limit your "um"s, "uh"s, and "like"s. Use whole phrases like "should have" instead of "shoulda." Avoid slang or A woman delivers a speech at a TEDx event.
