USE THE MEMORY OF RECENTLY ACCEPTING A JOB AND MOVING TO FLORIDA (I AM A FEMALE)
Week 2 Assignment
No matter where your life takes you, at some point you’ll engage in conversation with a stranger, a business partner, or a customer about a previous job, an unusual experience or even your family. It will be your opportunity to “wow” them with a good story.
Storytelling is a great skill to use in speeches. For this assignment, let’s pretend you want to WOW us with a good story! This speech is simply a well told memoir from your life. It should be interesting, it can be entertaining – but ultimately, I want you want to tell us something that you know we’ll enjoy.
Practice this speech before you record. Consider your audience and what we’ll need to know about the story to understand it! You will want your story to unfold smoothly and draw us (your audience) in.
A few parameters:
1. Your speech should be 2-4 mins in length.
2. Your speech should have a beginning, middle and an end. Introduce us to your situation, elaborate within the body, and conclude your tale
3. Show enthusiasm and have fun with this assignment! Choose a story about an event that was TRULY memorable.
4. Be prepared. You may certainly write out your speech, but rehearse it so that you’re not reading your speech. Your eyes will indicate whether you’re talking to us or reading to us.
