    2. Speeches to Entertain • Designed to be entertaining and ceremonial • Entertaining doesn’t mean it’s humorous • Make the audience feel an emotion or have an emotional connection • LIFE: club meetings, dinners, parties, graduations, awards ceremonies, holiday, ribbon cuttings, etc. • Most common: Introductory Speech, Master of Ceremonies, Toasts • Key element in public and personal life

    3. Characteristics • Usually much shorter than informative or persuasive speeches • More personal • Creative use of language (figurative language) • Must play to the audience Audience, Occasion, Purpose

    4. Develop a Clear Theme • Main purpose is to entertain • Optimistic • Uncomplicated • Anecdotes • Have one serious idea • Too much fluff • Anchors the theme

    5. Point and Proof Method • Your speech is made up of a central idea supported by a series of examples, anecdotes, or amusing stories • Makes it easy for your audience to remember • Open with an anecdote • Explain the point of the anecdote • Illustrate your point with additional anecdotes • Close by restating your central point and a last story

    6. Gathering Material Supporting material adds glitter to a solid frame! • Anecdotes, details, examples, jokes, current events, pop culture, etc. Brainstorming • What do you share with the audience or guest of honor? • Common events or experiences • Your own experiences (wedding, awards, etc.)

    7. You-Attitude • “You Attitude” means look at events from the audience’s perspective • What would you like to hear? • What would you not want to hear? • Don’t make the speech about you! • Focus on the theme
