In the last post, we mentioned that the first error in oratory is the lack of preparation, overconfidence. Some think that they can manage to transmit their speech without the need of previous preparation, but what exactly does this previous preparation mean?
Not only is it enough to be aware of all the details of the event and the resources you need for setting up your speech, but the previous preparation also begins with many important steps, the development of the theme, the organization of ideas. Without these steps everything else it would not make sense.
Before you start you should consider the objectives of your speech and the time spawn you want to dictate it. The objectives will determine what information to include and what strategy to use, while the time limit gives you an idea about how much information to give and what strategy would be appropriate according to the chosen time spawn.
|Objetive 1||Topic 1||v 1||Resources||X minutes|
|Objetive 1||SubtTopic 1||Strategy 2||Resources||X minutes|
|Objetive 2||Topic 2||Strategy 3||Resources||X minutes|
|Objetive 2||SubTopic 2||Strategy 4||Resources||X minutes|
|Objetive 3||Topic 3||Strategy 5||Resources||X minutes|
|Objetive 3||SubtTopic 3||Strategy 6||Resources||X minutes|
This type of planning applied to the development of speeches is the most complex of all the methods to outline the ideas, the only disadvantage is that it takes some time to elaborate it. But its utility lies in the multiple advantages i.e. it is detailed, it relates everything, each step is analyzed, allows multiple options to adapt it to different circumstances, it also allows to evaluate the result to improve the next presentation.
Include the content of the speech fully, word by word, or partially indicating extracts of the ideas that the lecturer will use.
