Here is a good speech writing tip that will easily make your speeches and presentations higher quality. Your audience will likely notice a difference immediately.  

Most people do not use this speaking tip and thus miss out on the power.

Here it is:

Be ready to give your speech 4 days before the actual date.

In other words if you are speaking on Saturday, you want to be ready to give it on Tuesday. Have your notes ready and speech practiced. Will it take lots of self-discipline? Sure, but don’t overlook the power of this good speech writing technique.

Do you just ignore the speech during those four days? No. Glance through it a couple times and even do some editing. You’ll have some amazing tweaks come to mind during those four days. Your presentation will be more apt to captivate the crowd.

There are several benefits:

  • We rarely get our best work done with a deadline looming. Sure speechwriting deadlines motivates, but the quality may not be the best.
  • A presentation becomes much less stressful because we are adequately prepared. 
  • We unlock the power of the subconscious mind. As your presentation bounces around in the back of your subconscious mind for a few days, brilliant thoughts and ideas will flash into your brain. Capture these and tweak the speech.
  •  You’ll deliver an A+ presentation. Last minute speeches often sound like last minute speeches.

You may be thinking,  “This sounds great, but I could never do this.”

Yes you can. Move your deadline for having you speech done to four days before your speech. At first you may not always meet the deadline, but at least it will help you get more done.

Apply this good speech writing tip and you’ll take your presentations to a whole new level. It is actually one of the best presentation tips I can give you.
