I Want Them To Remember My Speech!

Updated: 4 days ago


Proven ways to get your points across and for the audience to remember your message.

Primacy and Recency

People will better remember the first and last things you say.

This is why it is so important to have a strong opening and strong closing to your speech.


Repeat – Repeat – Repeat

The more often we hear something the more likely we’ll remember it.

Constant and consistent reinforcement is important.

Something Unusual

If it’s out of the ordinary, we’re more likely to recall it.

Example: I once saw someone give a speech about management and labor.

The speaker wore a two brimmed baseball cap, with one brim white (management) and the other brim blue (labor). When he was speaking as the manager, he had the white brim facing forward. When speaking as the labor person, the blue brim faced forward.

This speech was probably 25 years ago, but I still remember it because the speaker used – Something Unusual!


Pausing is a key component of presenting.

FRED All very important speech tips. Strong Opening Strong Closing Do unique things. Or do things uniquely. Which has become my. trademark. Also have a mix of strong openings and closings integrated in the presentation.
