Top Tips

Don’t overpower your audience – no more than 3 linking messages
Look at your audience, or at the tops of their heads
Don’t take yourself to seriously
Say the same thing but in different ways to get your message across
Don’t speak for too long
Ask rhetorical questions
Relax and breath – it’s your stage so set the tone and pace
Be Yourself – your audience can tell if you’re not comfortable and they want you to succeed

Don’t Rush

Prior Preparation

Engage Your Audience

Practise, Practice & Practice

What Would Alistair do? – Persuasive Speaking

Have belief in what you’re saying

Be authentic

Get out your key points and objectives- build your speech around these

Define your central argument

Be aware you’ll not get every on your side, but you may make them think of something new/different


Watch the next video and note down what techniques and themes you
notice that work well……

Project Scope
Choose one of your priorities and write a scope
Now team up and swap scopes and see how you could improve upon it
What do you want to achieve, as a group and individually?
The Big Budget Challenge
Individually you will need to read the instructions and construct your own financial priorities
Now in 2 groups you will need to take your plans and merge then into one that is agreed by all 4 of your.
Finally you will come together as the executive team and produce one budget to please all, good luck!
