Effective Speech Writing

It is obvious that making speeches is one of the most common but undervalued activities of chief executive officers, both in the private and public sectors. CEOs make speeches at AGMs, at board meetings, at company events, at dinners, and many times at invitations from outside. Frequently, these speeches are focused on the company or organization or institution.

Introduction

It is obvious that making speeches is one of the most common but undervalued activities of chief executive officers, both in the private and public sectors. CEOs make speeches at AGMs, at board meetings, at company events, at dinners, and many times at invitations from outside. Frequently, these speeches are focused on the company or organization or institution. At other times, the subject matter is anything from social to political issues. For politicians, the occasions for making speeches are even more, and frequently, more momentous. As in a recent case where a Minister was seriously embarrassed by the poor quality of the draft, it is clear that more than the ability to put sentences together is required for a speech to be worth listening to.

“I am a 100-level student of Information Science and Media Studies (ISMS) School of Media and Communication, Pan-Atlantic University. I want to become a professional graphics designer after school.

They came to my school Graceland College but at the time I did not show much interest. It was when I had gone to study for an A' Levels programme at Qaardan Educational Foundation that Dr. Okafor told me that I am good at graphics and some other IT related subjects and that she would like for me to study here. So I decided to take a look at it, then I applied and got a scholarship eventually.

I am excited about the forthcoming matriculation ceremony though I will be attending alone. This is because my family resides in the east. It will not be easy to have them all come from the east.

At SMC I have met nice teachers, tough subjects, very good labs so I get to learn a lot of things. There are very good computers in the lab so I get to practice a lot especially with the Mac. There are also good drawing pads. The school's facilty is very welcoming and very nice." –  Okoye Gabriel Ikechukwu 100 level student of Information Science and Media Studies (ISMS).
