The main points are the key ideas you present to enable your speech to accomplish its specific purpose. In this section, we're going to discuss how to determine your main points and how to organize those main points into a coherent, strategic speech.
Your main points should be relevant and significant. They should also be easy to understand and interesting enough to hold the audience's attention. If you can't think of any good reasons why your listeners should care about what you have to say, then it probably isn't worth saying - especially if you can say it in fewer words. Your main points should never contradict each other-especially not on different occasions. For example, if you claim that cooking is fun and that you enjoy cooking dinner for your family, then you shouldn't tell your son to eat his vegetables as punishment for breaking something in the kitchen.
As you write your speech, keep in mind that it is important to provide some kind of structure or framework within which your audience can follow your argument. This might simply involve identifying one or more themes or topics you want to cover in your speech and including examples or stories related to these themes. The more closely you relate what you are saying to things your listeners know they can understand and appreciate, the better their reaction will be when you do make an argument or suggestion that goes beyond the facts before you.
The important pieces of information or arguments provided inside the discussion or presentation are the primary points of any speech. In other words, the primary points are the key ideas that your audience should remember from your presentation. Typically, the primary points are followed by more details or examples to support your argument.
There are two types of secondary points: clarification questions and additional comments. A clarification question is used to make sure your audience understands what you're trying to say. For example, if one of your primary points was "XYZ company is good because it has many employees," then you could ask your audience if they understood this idea before moving on to another point. If not, you could follow up with a clarification question such as "So, what I'm saying is that XYZ company is good because it has many employees?"
Additional comments are ideas that don't really fit into either of the previous categories but are still important to include. For example, if you were giving a presentation on how companies can use social media to their advantage, you might mention some popular social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter after making your primary point about why these tools are useful. This would be an additional comment because it's an idea that doesn't really fit into either of the previous categories. However, including these sites in your presentation would help your audience understand how companies can use social media to promote themselves.
What are the basic tactics for preparing key points in speeches? Make distinct points for clarification. Balance the amount of time you devote to each point. To boost understanding, use parallel terminology. For example, say everything twice - once simply and once more clearly.
Distinct points will help keep your audience engaged and will help them understand what you're trying to get across. They should be made so that everyone can follow along without needing further explanation or commentary. Remember that not everyone reads speeches out loud, so make sure you include enough detail for those who do listen.
Time management is an important factor in successful presentations. You need to give people enough time to understand your points but not so much that they feel rushed off their feet. Try to avoid going over time if you can; this will make your listeners anxious and may even cause them to tune out.
Finally, use relevant examples to help explain complex concepts. This will help bring your speech alive and ensure that your listeners understand what you're saying.
These are just some of the strategies that you could use to write effective speeches. There are many others that we haven't covered here, so use these ideas as a starting point and develop your own unique style.
