The Inspirational

 Duration 2 Minutes                                             Lights: Green 1:00, Amber 1:30, Red 2:00, Buzzer 2:30


The object is to ‘inspire’ by leaving everyone with something to think about, to bring the audience to a realisation of a truth or to create within each person a deep-seated acceptance of your thoughts and the desire to live out the principle(s) you place before them.

 When preparing

  • Devise a mini-speech that develops an introduction to capture interest, a body that establishes and consolidates your message, and a conclusion that reaffirms this.
  • Source material can be from anywhere, perhaps your own experiences or maybe things you’ve read, the life of someone famous or of someone you know, a fable or piece of received wisdom.
  • As with all assignments, prepare and rehearse to ensure correct timing.

 Before the meeting begins:

Inform Chairman of your title, and how you would like him/her to introduce you.

 During your assignment

  • This assignment enjoys maximum impact when done with minimal use of notes, which signals greater internal conviction in what you are saying. This implies significant preparation.
  • Deliver the mini speech with due regard to pausing for impact, and to give people a chance to dwell on the significance of what you have said.

When you are finished, hand back to Chairman.
