5 ways to make your speech ending

Table of Contents

    You say your final words. There is applause in the auditorium. Some of them stood up, and the curtains drew.

    What do you think? How did the speech go?

    A decent one. Right? But seeing your stature, a decent one would be unfortunate for you. You would want them to remember you. How would that be possible?

    You have had a perfect beginning, keeping them hooked throughout your speech. Then, at the end, when it's time to conclude your remarks, You simply thank the audience.

    Nothing will happen

    Everyone will clap at the end; you would be just another speaker.

    What can you do to prevent this lukewarm response? Here are five tips that will help you end your speech effectively.

    • A call to action: The best way to end a speech is to provide the audience with a call to action. A speech without a call to action is probably a speech without soul. Show them what to do. Don't assume the audience will do as you say; present instances to them.
    • Memorable quote: Short, appropriate, powerful quotes are effective for opening and closing your speech. Quotes that inspire and help them to act are significant.
    • Close with a story: You tell a brief story with a moral and then tell the audience what the moral is. You can close with a story that illustrates your key points and then link to the key message that you are making with your speech.
    • Ask a Question: Ask open-ended and actionable questions which drive the audience to take action. It's important to end with a question related to the theme that broadens the discussion and gets people thinking.
    • End A Speech With A Summary: Towards the end of your talk, you can start the summary with something like, "Let's briefly revisit these main ideas…". A summary is vital to highlight major points from the speech. This makes them remember an important thing and filter out the rest.

    While every рresenter needs to thіnk аbоut hоw tо сlоse а sрeeсh, the аnswer is nоt аlwаys gоing tо be the sаme. It's а рersоnаl deсisiоn thаt shоuld refleсt yоur рersоnаlity, yоur gоаls, аnd the соntent оf yоur рresentаtiоn. But one thing is decisive that the end is equally important as anything in the speech. You might сhооse оne thаt is strаightfоrwаrd, trаditiоnаl, сreаtive, оr innоvаtive. Anything that you choose should do justice to your identity and character.
