CC10 – Inspire Your Audience

The last project in the Competent Communication Manual is number 10, “Inspire Your Audience”

10. Inspire Your Audience
An inspirational speech motivates an audience to improve personally, emotionally, professionally, or spiritually and relies heavily on emotional appeal. It brings the audience together in a mood of fellowship and shared desire, builds the audience’s enthusiasm, then proposes a change or plan and appeals to the audience to adopt this change or plan.
This speech will last longer than your previous talks, so make arrangements in advance with your VP Education and meeting Toastmaster for extra time.
8 – 10 minutes
To inspire the audience by appealing to noble motives and challenging the audience to achieve a higher level of beliefs or achievement.
