How to Organize Your Speech, Part 3

How to Organize Your Speech, Part 3

On October 22, 2013, I was one of three panelists sharing information about public speaking at the Western Museums Association’s 2012 Annual Meeting in Palm Springs, California. In this excerpt from my part of the presentation, I talk about the conclusion of the speech.

In summary, the conclusion of the speech is where you wrap things up and give the audience something to do with the information you just provided.

One way to conclude a speech is to call back to the opening and summarize what you talked about. You can also end with a story that sums up the points of your presentation. But the most important piece of a speech conclusion is your call to action. You need to tell the audience what you expect them to do with the information you just provided.

Here is a picture of the slide used in this part of the presentation:
