Some of us prepare meticulously for every speech and presentation we give. We deliver our speech.
Others just know their key points, and improvise around them. We make the speech as we go.
Just like learning styles, neither style is wrong, and they often stem from our personality type and past experience of speaking in public.
This post is here simply to highlight the difference between the two.
Speech deliverer versus speech maker.
If we don’t understand which we are, we’re probably trying to make certain text-book ways of writing and giving speeches work for us, when our core speaking style isn’t designed for this.
If we know whether we are a speech deliverer or a speech maker, then we know how best to write, how best to rehearse and how best to deliver our presentations.
