How to make a motivational speech?

Let’s take a hypothetical situation.  Few colleagues of yours are participating in the marathon, and you are the appointed person in-charge. Keeping in with your role, you have to make a speech to motivate your team for the marathon. This is how you can do it:

You: Good morning, team. How are we doing this lovely September morning? Are we ready for the marathon?

Team: Yes!

You: Louder! I want to hear your excitement!

Team: Yay! Yes!

You: Remember, today we are running for the benefit of underprivileged and blind kids. Let us do our best to show our solidarity and care. Having said that, it is also important that we win the cup! We have to bring that cup and display it in our office proudly. So are we going to get it or not?

Team: Yes, we will.

You: Amazing. I have full confidence in my team that we will do our very best. Here are a few things to remember – stay together, stay hydrated and stay ahead. Together we will bring that golden cup home! So are we ready?

Team: Of course!

You: That’s the spirit! Here are your tee-shirts with your registration numbers. Now pull up your socks and tie up your laces, team. Let’s get going.

So this is how you can deliver an effective and amazing motivational speech. However, there are a few things you should remember along with the speech.

· Make sure your voice carries the same excitement and confidence you are preaching through your speech.

· Do not sound too pushy, rather you should sound inspiring.

· When delivering the speech, make eye contact with every member of the team to engage the whole team.

Using your fluent English speaking skills and the tips listed above, you can easily deliver an exemplary speech and become the star of your office!
