    Types of Combined Speeches
  • 12. A keynote speech is usually delivered near the beginning of a conference or meeting in order to set the tone of the event
    A keynote speech has two special purposes:
    To unify and define the members of the audience as a community
    eg, to unify university professors as educators, regardless of their field
    To set the meeting’s thematic agenda
    ie, to establish the larger issues which should dominate the meeting
    Keynote Speeches:
  • 13. A successful keynote speech will open the door to discussion, not close it.
    With the possibility of a diverse audience, it is important that a keynote speech is multivocal: something that includes terms and phrases that each audience member can interpret in light of their specific concerns
    Keynote Speeches (cont’d):
  • 14. A pep talk is almost any speech intended to motivate and inspire
    Pep Talks:
    Chris Farley --->
  • 15. These speeches have two purposes:
    To heighten the sense of community (ie, “we’re all in this together”)
    To increase motivation (ie, Chris Farley/Matt Foley)
    Pep Talks (cont’d):
  • 16. Surprisingly, these are speeches that are given after a meal
    These speeches are usually humorous in tone, but also contain a serious message for the audience
    Be careful with humor; it’s usually best to poke fun at one’s self, rather than at others
    After-Dinner Speeches
