Are you aware of what you have communicated when you walk into a room or stand in front of an audience, without saying a word? Imagine you are in the audience and the speaker, with head down, wanders to the front of the audience in her house-painting clothes with splatted colours on her shabby hat, shirt, jeans and shoes. What would you be thinking? Whether you know it or not, you have made a judgement about the speaker.
Giving a speech at an assembly of adolescents, a black tie dinner, a 21st birthday, a eulogy or the farewell of a retiring colleague, the recipe is the same as for any other speech. Begin with an opening which immediately commands attention, develop the main content (body of the speech) in a logical sequence and conclude with an ending that leaves them laughing, crying or even both. Depending on the occasion, often the purpose of the social speech is to praise, celebrate or remember.
