Speak in Bits


The Proficient Explainer's Pantry


That speaking programs have a beginning, a middle, and an end, is a fact.  The best speakers I know deliver programs as a sequence of bits, each a mini-speech making its point with a beginning, a middle and an end.  Mine are named: First Love, Best Love, Nov19/1986, Mrs. Eckert...


Each bit lasts five to ten minutes which means I can readily form a speech of any length by creating an opening and closing to enclose the bits.  Also, as a Toastmaster, I can give this new bit as a manual speech.


My Bit Creation Process:  I write an idea in short form [twenty five words or less], create a one minute core speech which I record, play and refiine until it is exactly what I want, then I expand it to be a completed bit.


What's yours?  This is an idea to consider, not a direction to follow.
