So, you got a talk and you need the content. Importantly a script.
Many people work on check points to deliver a talk.
That’s fine if you know your content well. But if you don’t;
Then follow what I am saying.
Let’s assume I chose the talk title –
Why you should choose your life partner?
Here are some check points of script.
- Arranged marriage has its own merits.
(Who doesn’t like choosing a partner before marriage? My uncle
hates love marriage. How can I find out what percentage of people don’t like arrange marriage at all?)
- Marriage is all about fight
If it is arranged, fight is less. If it is love marriage fights are big.
How a couple call them using funny names?
Adding some humor for the audience here.
(When husband call his wife- Shona,Cutto,Sweetu, Jaanu, Baby,Kucchi,Darlo,Bae,etc
When a wife calls her husband –
A ji, Suno ji, Suniya, Suno na, Ji sunte ho, Or first name, Or name remixed with personality like – Baabu, Gonu, Baccha,Lovey,etc.)
- People need to enjoy their life with harmony…no matter arranged or love marriage
(Has any ever killed anyone even after worst fights? Are there
Cases wives beating men ? Death by arranged marriage? Why does love marriage has better
relationship and bonding? )
- Arranged marriage is sort of like a smooth chocolate.
(What happens if you try to marry a girl who had a boyfriend? Can’t be good.
Must find out.)
- To learn how to behave after marriage is to learn about communication and relationships.
(This sounds over caution. When did people start saying “I love you” and they really mean it. Love each other in real or a formality these days?)
- What about early divorce?
(no. of divorce cases in India, why divorce is the only solution why not compromise with the circumstance, kids suffer.)
- What about pending legal cases of substance and verbal abuse?
(system and laws should be reconsidered. amendment of laws ,etc)
That’s it for you to understand,what I mean by a structure.
In Addition include – anecdotes, incidents, storytelling
Top up – invite audience to the stage, prop, quotes, visuals if necessary.
Hey!! Now you have a rough sketch ready.
Show or talk to your potential audience members and ask if they can tell you how to make it better or hire a public speaking coach to assist you professionally.
If it’s a short talk, refine as much as you can and for long talk its already long.
Revise or add more questions and ideas. Try to make it interesting, that’s where you differentiate yourself with a normal presenter or a fellow speaker.
5 points are brilliant, 7-10 is excellent and 15 -20 will make you a rockstar. Use it wisely as per the plan or sometimes in sync audiences taste. Remember, Public speaking is a skill.
I suggest be well prepared, chances of forgetting are always there . Move out for a stroll of a drink. Refresh. Smoke.Romance. Listen music. Idea is to do something unrelated to the script, this helps you gain more access.
Script ready. (:
