Here are my two speeches:
I think that out of my two speeches, the 3-minute speech was done better. This is because, my voice was projected better, and I also had eye-contact. Since the impromptu speech was made-up, and I did not prepare for it, I often paused, and used filler words, such as “um” and “er.” In my 3-minute speech, I thought that my structure was good. I had strong points to persuade the audience, and I also changed the tone of my voice. I made sure I used modulation. I think my volume was good, because it remained consistent throughout my speech. Also, I added emphasis on important words, because I wanted the audience to remember certain parts. However, I need to work on the physical side. I need to put some more expression into my face, to deliver my speech, and make it more convincing, and persuasive. My use of palm cards were good. I did not wave them around, and distract the audience. I made sure they were quite small, so I would not get distracted by them as well. I also numbered them, so I would not get confused.
So I think that you can see that my three-minute speech was better presented because I used more modulation, and overall, I think I was more confident.
My Persuasive techniques were good. I made sure my points were logical, and that they were structured, and put into a good order, which is easy for the audience to comprehend.
I really liked Kenneth Macleod’s speech, because the topic was interesting (it applied to many people) and he added some humor to it, which got my attention. He also varied the tone of his voice, so that was very good. His time was good as well, and it wasn’t too short or too long. I think that mine was a tad too short, so that is also another part in which I should improve on.
