Publisher's Summary

No matter if the speech that you'll be expected to give is part of a role that you'll be playing or if it is for some event outside of a production, giving a good speech can be a real challenge. The good news is that as an actor, you have the skills that it's going to take to do this well. The same skills that you use to bring a role to life can be used to breathe life into a speech.
What you'll find inside:


"Once upon a time..." - the role of storytelling in business communication
How to make a technical presentation riveting
Persuade an audience using three secrets used by presenters
Know your audience: what you don't know may hurt you

Just think of all of the great speakers who have gone before you: Dr. Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy, Steve Jobs, the list goes on and on. Now you've been give your chance to change the world!
I can well image what you are feeling right now - fear, doubt, uncertainty. Don't worry about it. I've got some good news for you - all of those great speakers felt the very same thing. However, they were able to muster up the courage to go out there and give the best speech that they possibly could. They did change the world and you just might end up doing the same thing.
However, before you go doing that, we've got to make sure that you've got a well-planned speech to work with. Planning a speech is the first step in creating and delivering a powerful and effective speech. In order to plan a speech you need to take the time before you start to write out your speech and think about who you'll be speaking to.
When planning a speech you need to make sure that you understand the purpose of your speech. Why are you going to go to all of the effort to create and deliver this speech? After you know that, take the time to think about your audience: what do they want from your speech?
