Six steps to presenting an excellent speech
Recently I found an interesting PowerPoint slide about the speech preparation process titled Teaching Communication Preparation Circular Model on a web page covering My Teaching Speech Class Tips for Instructors at Jim Peterson‘s Speech Topics Help website. He illustrated the following five steps using arrows in partial circles:
I liked that Jim showed a meandering series of steps rather than the usual bullet point list or boxes linked by straight arrows. I disliked that he forgot to include Rehearsing as a necessary step before Delivering.
So, as is shown above, I redrew his slide with that missing step included, and an even more meandering path from Selecting (a topic) to Delivering (the speech).
