Before I got married I convinced my then boyfriend and now husband- so that together we apuntásemos a cooking course. Something simple, to save us from having to feed on precooked almost every day. The course was fun and we learned to lose the fear of the stove. However, the advice that caught my attention (and today still remember laughing) was that "a good dessert manages a mediocre meal and a bad one spoils a great feast". The funny thing is that, thereafter, I have observed that this maxim is perfectly applicable to other arts very different, including the "art of public speaking".
The end of the speech is actually more strategic element among all that a good speaker should know how to use. The last thing you say is what is most likely to be in the public's memory.
At first you start speaking in public is easy to hear an end of speaking the type: "Good, this is all I had to tell you about this topic, so you better finish already "or note that the speaker repeats over and over again, in a vicious circle, what he said, not knowing how to get out. In both cases the impression that is left is terrible, because the speech has been truncated. We've run out of dessert.
How do you get a really shocking end? Clearly, quietly preparing in advance. Even the most experienced speakers write and rehearse the end of his speech several times. It is not to memorize the words; ideas but is intended to convey to successfully place the icing on the cake.
I propose several suggestions that you can include to finish your speech:
1. Briefly summarizes and repeats the points raised. It's easy to fall into the mistake of believing that, as the points are clear to me, should be equally clear to listeners. While he has matured is transmitting ideas for hours of preparation, the public is the first time you hear. Therefore it is necessary to take the time to prepare a bright and brief summary setting out the three main ideas which has broadcast his speech.
2. Sincerely flatters the audience. For this closure to be effective, has to be a sincere compliment and done with honesty based on intuitive feelings that you received during your talk. If false, the public will detect and reject. Therefore, the praise should always be customized to the audience that receives. You can prepare several versions and use that is most relevant to the kind of public.
3. Use your sense of humor. If you ease it in your personal life, is fantastic that you dare to use it on a dais. If you are not a candidate for future comedy club, How do? There is no specific recipe for this. Find your way to get; but always being true to your personality and charisma. Strive to find a closure that makes them smile funny. Comedians stand-up spend hours preparing the joke not only to raise the public end of the seat but the mirror practicing how to say.
4. Read a paragraph from a book. Find a paragraph or a quote from a book that goes in line with the content of your talk. Get the book and slowly read your proposal. No doubt enhance and beautify your speech.
I once read that in some African tribes the speaker is allowed to speak as long as you can stay on one foot. When the big toe of the other foot touches the ground, must withdraw. So finish your conference ever before what the public wants. Baltasar Gracian said that "good, You breve, twice as good ".
If you want to include some of these proposals in your locks, your audience certainly will leave the room with excellent taste and having enjoyed a delicious dessert that will value the rest of the meal. Enjoy your meal!
