• Formal speech A formal speech is usually carefully prepared and delivered on some formal or official occasion. It could be for the inauguration of the activities of associations, the lane of foundation stores, the launching of new projects, meetings of shareholders, press conferences, etc.


What care should be taken to write and deliver a speech effectively: Have a close look at the surroundings.  Prepare the speech in a written form.
 One should be properly dressed up and should take care about the

language which is to be used during the speech.
 The speaker should understand the crowd properly and should also

know about the venue and the guest during the occasion.  The speaker should practice the speech before delivering it to the audience.  The tone and style of ones speech is determined by the occasion.  The language of the speech is determined by the educational level of the audience.  It is important that the speaker should take care of the time allotted to him/her and should come on time to avoid the inconvenience to the audience.  The speaker should be familiar with the names of the important persons like the organizers, the name of the chairman, and the head or the president of the occasion.  The speaker should not cover all the points, only the important points should be mentioned and emphasize on them.  The voice should be loud and clear enough to be heard and understand by the audience.  Do not contradict your own point.  The speaker should modulate its voice to avoid boredom.


 The speaker should create humor in the speech so that the audience

becomes more attentive and the speech also becomes interesting.
 Address the audience as friends or ladies and gentlemen by taking the

occasion in mind. If it’s a party or a non official speech then start with friends and if its official and social then start with ladies and gentlemen or colleagues.
 The speaker should build a connection between himself and the

audience.  The conclusion should leave clear message. It should not be abrupt but understandable.
 The speaker should have a good posture, well dressed and should have

a confident look.  Too much movement and walking of the speaker may distract the audience.
 Pauses: - The speech should be delivered at a comfortable speed, a

short silence before making an important point helps to emphasis it.
