My informative speech

February 16, 2011 at 2:52 pm 1 comment

I thought I did pretty well on my informative speech because I was able to deliver the speech effectively for a couple of reasons. The first reason was because I had a story that I could relate to for my topic on this particular speech. I think that I informed several people on an important topic and I gave statistics that made people sit back and think. I gave just a few statistics, not too many because I didn’t want it to sound like a research paper and get boring so I only spoke about five or six interesting statistics.

I was able to deliver my speech well in my opinion. When I went up to the podium I was confident.  I knew what I was talking about because I had stories about my topic. With more confidence I was able to speak in front of the class easier and I had more eye contact with the entire class as well. Overall I thought I made a drastic improvement from my first reading speech to my informative speech. However, there is still room for improvement.

    I agree that it is easier to give a speech that you can relate with. Your statistics really hit home I think because drinking and driving is a very serious offense.
