This week, we learned about the importance of editing, practice, and feedback in creating effective communications. The editing process might involve organizing your content in the most effective way, cutting irrelevant content, or checking grammar and spelling. Rehearsing is an important part of the editing process, and rehearsing a presentation could including practicing in front of mirror, practicing in front of another person, or recording yourself. Finally, asking for constructive criticism helps you gain insight into how your communication will be perceived by another person.
Make a brief speech to your work team, the whole department, or the whole organization, about how to solve the organizational problem discussed in Week Three (attached). If that problem is unappealing, you may select some other organizational situation for which you will present your ideas or review ideas.
I have done the formatting so that questions will be boldface in answers and normal type throughout. Please check your work for paragraphs, topic sentences, grammar (everyone is allowed a few typos!), and white space.
What is the theme of thesis of this speech, stated in a complete sentence? If you can word it like a LEDE, all the better.
If you have two or three main points that might be written out as sentences, that would add a lot to our understanding. No more than three main points, please.
Who is the audience: the work team, the department, the whole organization?
Briefly describe demographic and psychographic factors you will take into account. For example, if your audience is six people with whom you work in a casual atmosphere, the speech is likely to be more casual than if you are addressing several hundred people, including the organization’s CEO.
What would you focus on during the editing process to improve the reception of your speech by the intended audience? Metcalfe (2022) gives us specific editing and revision topics. Please reflect that in this answer.
How could you go about getting constructive feedback on your presentation?
Give us a specific person you would ask, why you selected that person, and write out the language you use like a little script for asking for that feedback.
During the presentation, you notice several members of the audience starting to look bored and drifting off to sleep. What could you do to reengage your audience in the presentation?
