Record a presentation and then write it down


Presentation to deliver at work or a best man speech? But you struggled to write speech out by hand and then learn it traditionally? Then don’t. Think about your speech while driving the car, having a shower, riding a motorbike. Talking out loud will give you a feel for how it will sound to your audience. Then use the audio notes app on your phone to record some initial ideas. Start making bullet points – you will be surprised how the speech starts to fall out of you and you can use the bullet points as prompts to refine your speech. This is how I approach my speechwriting now. Maybe a few scraps note here and there then work though it in my head, speaking out loud and refine it from there
