|Interesting speech topics guide, including seven ways to find, and refine and precise some good subjects in the speechwriter’s process.
The most asked question I get almost every day from students is this:
What makes a topic interesting?
Well, the answer is simple. You have to like it yourself, the subject has to be appropriate to the rules of the assignment, to the audience and the setting of the meeting:
1 – Look in magazines, journals, and newspapers for events.
Current or historical, that does not matter at this point, both are okay – and recent engaging and exciting facts, and perhaps valuable information that attracts the attention.
Articles about subjects that interests you and that are comfortable for you to talk about are good indications.
2 – Jot down any possible idea that comes up for interesting speech topics. I always draft a short list for myself of candidate issues if I am contracted for a public speaking engagement.
And then I skip the ones that are too difficult and too complex to prepare and master in 8 to 10 minutes time.
3 – Review some online books on the subject for more detailed current information about your topic. Or go to a library and ask for books and reference articles about your subject.
Without exception all librarians I know will help you sorting out the speechwriter subject with their advice and recommendations. For example you choose for an alluring pleasure physical activity or farming and and countryside topic.
Try to understand how the author has covered it. What’s his structure? What points, information or arguments are the strongest? What examples and illustrations has she or he used?
4 – Peerless reliable statistics and new discoveries can help writing and refining.
Look for controversies, rare and strange opinions. What do you think of it? What do you want your audience to think of it?
5 – Think about related engaging interpretive hints hints to talk about. When you view your rough list, try to find new points, different angles of view or just turn your thoughts up side down. Look at the special aspects that surprise the listeners.
>>> For example try these 2 more detailed summary outlines with main points and subpoints. Use my sample structure to add or otherwise wipe steps and stages you do not need.
>>> In addition to these patterns, you find more ideas for outlined main points in my Minute Section (in the navigation menu bar right on your left of this portal page). Or move straight to sixty plus lineups for speechwriters.
That can be very enlighting for enhancing public discernment. They also can see, feel, or even taste and smell what you try to explain or demonstrate in a couple of minutes.
|6 – Look for supporting and also for opposing opinions, plus interesting speech topics statements. Add visual aids where you want to emphasize or to give some prominence to an unimaginable point in your interesting topic idea.|
7 – Watch news shows, history documentaries and debating programs – for example the morning shows and the evening news. They are especially helpful for developing a rough list of wheedling brainstorms.
