By Ramona Sukhraj

This [Infographic] is the ultimate guide to legendary speech writing.

guide-to-legendary-speech-writingDo you remember the commencement speech at your college graduation? How about the toast at a loved one’s wedding? Your favorite influencer’s last keynote?

Some speeches, like these, stand the test of time. They have a way of moving us and staying with us even after the applause has faded. We quote them and share videos of them on YouTube, but why? What exactly makes these particular speeches so powerful?

Legendary speeches open the eyes and mind of the listener. They paint a picture with words and inspire action or change.

While yes, a lot of this is thanks to the charisma and candor of the speakers themselves, there are several tangible and action steps less confident speakers can take to improve their own.

In this infographic, PaperMasters offers dozens of such tips including:

  • Great speeches are clear, concise, informative, and interesting.

  • Persuasive speeches are:

    • debatable

    • emotionally engaging

    • Thought-provoking

    • relatable.

  • Start Strong: At the beginning of the speech, incorporate a surprising hook, a note that your audience can relate to, then explain your purpose and plan.

  • After you finish your first draft:

    • Reread

    • Ask a friend to read it

    • Check for a nature tone of voice

  • Tips for successful delivery:

    • Practice, practice, practice

    • Work out your own relaxation technique

    • Smile

    • Enjoy yourself
