You’ve come to the end of what you wanted to say in your presentation. How do you end the speech properly? In this excerpt from a workshop for teens about public speaking, I share some tips on how to develop and organize your speech.

The purpose of a speech’s conclusion is to wrap things up and stop. There are several ways you can do this effectively. Those covered in the video include:

  • Circling to the beginning
  • Summarize what you’ve said
  • A story that illustrates the points in the speech
  • A call to action

The above video was excerpted from two 45-minute workshops I facilitated for a group of teens and young adults. I am available to speak to your group, both in-person and virtually, on a variety of topics. For more information, visit www.carmaspence.com/speaker.
