Public Speaking Speech Help
This is a good video on how to start a speech (a bit more focused on sales) but still worth watching for anyone trying to tell a story

Conquering the world of public speaking .. right on!!

Tips, there are some main things:

1. Know your stuff

2. Engage your audience

3. BE CONFIDENT- THAT SELLS

I'm going to touch on the psychology and how you should think about public speaking here:


What you say, and how you say it are equally important. Research your topic enough that you are confident enough in the material to be able to add expression, antecdotes and example. Public speaking is an art. I do a lot of it, and the main thing I've noticed is that when you talk, you are selling your audience on what you are saying.
Every word must serve a purpose, and that is to get your audience to believe and buy what it is you are offering them.

As FBLA is a content competition, you must know the material well, but as well, it is a speaking competition - Therefore, you must know how to tailor your words to your audience. I hate to say it, but think, the only thing separating you from your other competitors is most likely not the content of your speech, but rather the delivery of your speech ... just remember that...

and of course, best of luck!! Let us know on Roundpier how it goes!!

TSA @ Ware County High School

I made it to state with Essays on Technology and Webmaster last year. This year I plan to compete in Fashion Design, Webmaster, and a couple others!
It’s my first year so I’m just planning on doing Debate, Extraneous Speech, and Technology Problem. You’re in a music club, do you play an instrument?
Good luck! It was a fun experience for me! Yes I play the piano and I song write.
