AWESOME WAYS
9TO END YOUR SPEECH WITH A BANG
leave them laughing, the speaker
Instead of firing off a perfunctory
launching
fireworks of final passionate
thoughts from the podium.
REFER BACK TO YOUR OPENING:
Open up with a story, quote, metaphor, or powerful statement, and
close the speech by referring back to that opening.
1
2
GIVE YOUR AUDIENCE
A CHALLENGE:
Example:
During Election season, the
candidates often close their
speeches by challenging their
audiences to get off their butts,
vote, and make their voices heard.
INVITE YOUR AUDIENCE
Rather like the challenge, you invite your audience to undertake something with
time to do it and together we
3
USE A QUOTE
Example:
An inspiring speech on importance of
non-violence could end with the quote:
-Mahatma Gandhi-
4
eye for an eye will only make the whole world
THE REPETITIVE CLOSE
Find a phrase and structure it in a
repetitive format that strikes the cadence
of a drummer, building to a climax like this:
And so what we have been saying is that life
is an adventure, dare it. A duty, perform it.
An opportunity, take it. A journey, complete
it. A promise, fulfill it. A puzzle, solve it. A
5
Example: Before I take questions, let me conclude with this point.
THE SUGGESTIVE CLOSE
6
SING SONG CLOSE
Lets say your phrase is:
Can W
You repeat that phrase over and over
again. Then just before your close, you
say:
of you are driven. I know that none of
us can do this alone, but (pause)
Together (pause) we can (pause until
the audience responds.)
7
People love stories and messages coming through stories do have
high retention rates. Whenever possible, personalize the anecdotes.
ANECDOTE
8
CALL TO ACTION
A persuasive talk usually ends with
a call to action. The speaker may try
to persuade the audience to take a
specific action.
Example:
A speech about protecting forests
may end with requesting the
audience to plant at least one tree
in the weekend.
9
DON'T GET CAUGHT IN THESE TRAPS
Having no conclusion and whimpering
out on a weak "That's all" type of line
Not timing the speech and running out of
it before giving your prepared conclusion
Ending with an apology
undermining your credibility -
"Sorry for going on so long.
I know it can be a bit boring
listening to someone like me."
Adding new material just
as you finish which
confuses your audience.
That belonged in the
body of your speech.
Making the ending too
long in comparison to the
rest of your speech
Using a different style or
tone that doesn't fit with
what went before it
Ending abruptly without preparing
the audience for the conclusion.
You need a transition or bridge to
have them follow you comfortably.
PRACTICE
MAKES PERFECT

9 Awesome Ways to End Your Speech with a Bang

  • 1. AWESOME WAYS 9TO END YOUR SPEECH WITH A BANG
  • 2. leave them laughing, the speaker Instead of firing off a perfunctory launching fireworks of final passionate thoughts from the podium.
  • 3. REFER BACK TO YOUR OPENING: Open up with a story, quote, metaphor, or powerful statement, and close the speech by referring back to that opening. 1
  • 4. 2 GIVE YOUR AUDIENCE A CHALLENGE: Example: During Election season, the candidates often close their speeches by challenging their audiences to get off their butts, vote, and make their voices heard.
  • 5. INVITE YOUR AUDIENCE Rather like the challenge, you invite your audience to undertake something with time to do it and together we 3
  • 6. USE A QUOTE Example: An inspiring speech on importance of non-violence could end with the quote: -Mahatma Gandhi- 4 eye for an eye will only make the whole world
  • 7. THE REPETITIVE CLOSE Find a phrase and structure it in a repetitive format that strikes the cadence of a drummer, building to a climax like this: And so what we have been saying is that life is an adventure, dare it. A duty, perform it. An opportunity, take it. A journey, complete it. A promise, fulfill it. A puzzle, solve it. A 5
  • 8. Example: Before I take questions, let me conclude with this point. THE SUGGESTIVE CLOSE 6
  • 9. SING SONG CLOSE Lets say your phrase is: Can W You repeat that phrase over and over again. Then just before your close, you say: of you are driven. I know that none of us can do this alone, but (pause) Together (pause) we can (pause until the audience responds.) 7
  • 10. People love stories and messages coming through stories do have high retention rates. Whenever possible, personalize the anecdotes. ANECDOTE 8
  • 11. CALL TO ACTION A persuasive talk usually ends with a call to action. The speaker may try to persuade the audience to take a specific action. Example: A speech about protecting forests may end with requesting the audience to plant at least one tree in the weekend. 9
  • 12. DON'T GET CAUGHT IN THESE TRAPS
  • 13. Having no conclusion and whimpering out on a weak "That's all" type of line
  • 14. Not timing the speech and running out of it before giving your prepared conclusion
  • 15. Ending with an apology undermining your credibility - "Sorry for going on so long. I know it can be a bit boring listening to someone like me."
  • 16. Adding new material just as you finish which confuses your audience. That belonged in the body of your speech.
  • 17. Making the ending too long in comparison to the rest of your speech
  • 18. Using a different style or tone that doesn't fit with what went before it
  • 19. Ending abruptly without preparing the audience for the conclusion. You need a transition or bridge to have them follow you comfortably.
