Speechwriting

A tip for speechwriting.

Avoid writing in paragraphs!

They're a pig to edit and even tougher to internalise as a flow.

I suggest one sentence (or phrase) per line.

Preferably double or 1.5 spaced.

Easier to edit.

Easier to internalise.

You'll be prompted to write in shorter sentences too.

May look like poetry as a result.

But that's a good sign.

 I was recently promoted into a role where public speaking and inspiring people has become more central to my ability to be effective. I was amazed by how effective just one session was. I heard indirectly that my presentation had been particularly inspirational - one person even contacted the Director of my organisation to say how impressed he had been. Without any exaggeration, I give all this credit to Simon.
