Crafting Public Remarks – How to Write a Good Speech

Thu Apr 13, 2017
9:30 am - 11:30 am

Cary Memorial Library

Sheri Saginor


Chances are, all of us at some point must write and deliver a speech, be it a keynote address, a fundraising speech, or a banquet toast.

For some it’s intimidating, and for others a piece of cake. But rarely is it systematic.

In this “Speechwriting Basics” seminar, you’ll learn the key elements of a successful speech–why some hold your attention and others put you to sleep.

Then you’ll learn a speech structure that you can use no matter what type of speech you need to write.

Next we’ll tackle the actual writing process—the “putting pen to paper”  (or fingers to keyboard) part of the process.

Lastly, you’ll get proven tips on speech delivery so you’ll feel calm and confident.

At the end of the seminar, you’ll have a set of tools to use when writing and delivering your own speeches. Even if you already know how to do it, you’ll be able to write better ones.
