My goal for Speech of the Week is to have a weekly day on my blog where I’ll post my weekly speech topic that I hope to give sometime during the week. This blog post goal comes out of a larger goal of wanting to become the best possible public speaker. That means I need to continue to consistently give speeches. I feel like i need to push myself a little harder and get as much critical feedback as possible. I think speaking in public will not only improve my public speaking but it will also greatly improve a lot of my social skills and job prospects.
The speech I’ll be giving this week is based on the Toastmasters Humorously Speaking manual’s Project 1, “Warm up Your Audience,” which should last five to seven minutes. The point of this speech is to start your speech with a humorous story that relates to your speech topic about anything I choose. I’m hoping to have this speech completed by next Tuesday.
