“watching the South African sun set with the music of Handel or Tchaikovsky playing” but we all know// that building a better future for the children of the world is what gives this extraordinary man the most pleasure.

During his 89 years spent on this planet, Mr. Mandela has // and still has // many goals.

· Do not continue a sentence from one page to another

· Do not staple manuscript
· Number your pages

Speech to Entertain

...Speech to Entertain: An Overview The primary purpose of a speech to entertain is to have the audience relax, smile and enjoy the occasion. The speech should have a central theme or a focus. A series of jokes will NOT work well for this type of speech. Good speeches to entertain typically mix humor with more serious morals, lessons learned, or experiences. In other words, they have a real point to make… they are not just silly, slapstick humor. You can tell a lighthearted, personal story that reveals a life lesson you’ve learned or examine a familiar subject from a different and unexpected viewpoint or take a lighthearted look at a particular issue. Example: Summer jobs: “Summer jobs for high schoolers: The daily diary of the American Nightmare.” Additional suggestions for the composition and delivery of after dinner speeches are as follows: 1. Carefully select an interesting, timely, and appropriate topic. Having something familiar in the talk that the audience can relate to will enhance listener interest. 2. Build your speech around a central theme, moral, or idea. 3. Support your main point or central theme with colorful stories, narrative and examples. 4. Be imaginative and creative when delivering your talk. Few speeches demand more imagination and creativity than the speech to entertain. 5. Be positive and good-natured when delivering your talk—irony and sarcasm are acceptable but not bitterness. 6. Be optimistic and modest when speaking and......

Tesco Manuscript

...Tesco Speech Thank you, please be seated, it is an honor for me to speak here for you today at the London School of Economics. As you may know my name is Tom Johnson and I am the PR assistant for Tesco, which is one of the largest retailers in the world, and that title have some expectations committed to it. I am here today to give a speech for you about Tesco’s current situation, and how we plan to deal with it, as one of the largest retailers. With the changing consumer behavior in kept in mind. If you come up with any questions during the show, you will have to remember them till the end, where I will be answering all your answers. Our last twelve-month have not been pretty, especially not on the bottom line. The past years Tesco have been called the British stock market darling, and been criticized for being too successful. Our shares have fallen with almost 20%, and analysts have halved their prices on our shares. Our plan to take on USA has not been as successful as we have hoped. We launched our whole new concept, to take on the American market just before the financial crisis. Which were not suitable for launching our new store. That is a part of the reason why it has not been a success, and it has also effected why our stocks has fallen so drastically. To get the wheels going again, we need to change, nothing good comes to those who just sit and wait. Therefore we have created a six-point plan at Tesco: * Service and staff * Stores......

...that was when I was a freshman in high school. I am certainly the person I am today because of this committee. As a member I learned how to become a leader, travel throughout the states, and become friends with amazing people. Leadership is what I learned as I enjoyed my four years of being a committee member for The Renaissance Program. Some people see leadership as simply someone who people follow, or as someone who guides or directs others. Well I see leadership as organizing a group of people to achieve a common goal. Leadership is also a social influence enlisted by a person to support others in an accomplishment. As the Renaissance Program grew I was one of the main members, making me feel welcoming. As the four years went on I became more and more of a leader due to the actions I was making on the committee. These actions include getting students and teachers involved in the committee and outside the committee. I was in charge of different Rallies throughout the years to help promote our Program. Rallies would involve teachers and students and different activities that were performed in front of the whole school. We taught our school how to accomplishment different goals as students and rewarded them. One of the best parts of being part of the Renaissance Program was traveling. Every year the Program was invited to the big Renaissance Convention in a different state. Every convention was planned in the summertime and brought every Renaissance committee together......

...mingle, as it can be to stand in front of a crowd and give a speech. The art of mingling can be very difficult to understand and execute. To feel more at ease at the event, prepare ahead of time, with full stomach, the right attitude and the right business tools, which I will give you throughout this course. 3. One thing every culture has in common is the initial contact. The first handshake and word is important, no matter which crowd or individual you choose to mingle with. When meeting and greeting in a professional context; make eye contact, smile, shake hands and say hello. Introduce yourself with your first and last name. This signals confidence, and that’s a signal you would like to show when presenting yourself as it gives you credibility. Approach people standing on their own or groups. When approaching a group of two you may be interrupting a private conversation and it could become awkward or uncomfortable, and in these situations its good to have considered your face wants, which is a technique I will explain in a little while. If you are seated when someone approaches you, show respect and interest by standing up when greeting them and shake their hand. It’s also important to show a high degree of politeness due to the situation. Some general principles for being polite within a particular culture are being tactful, generous, modest and sympathetic towards others. When approaching and making small talk, it’s important to consider politeness......

...Speech 1 “A Time for Choosing” by Ronald Reagan 1. Ronald Reagan gained the audience attention by his opening statement “ I’ve been permitted to choose my own words and ideas” 2. The topic was A Time for Choosing, it was a presidential candidate speech concerning the upcoming election which was going to be held in a few week. It explained his standpoint and views on the hot topics such as the war and the economy 3. Ronald Regan stated that he once was a democrat but felt that the issues facing the nation required him to cross the line. He is quoted as saying” those who have the most have did the least to prevent it from happening”. He stated that freedom is fragile. The government doesn’t control things without controlling people. 4. Ronald Regan was an excellent speaker. His speech flowed well. There were times he used jokes to lighten the mood as well as a way to relate to the listeners. When he was making appoint his voice became more stern and serious. 5. He transitioned into his conclusion by quoting Alexander Hamilton 6. I feel he did well by using stories; for example, the story about the Cuban who said that he had a place to go for freedom, but we as Americans have no place else to go for peace 7. The only improvements I think should have been made would have been not using the names of people for joke examples Speech 2 “Acres of Diamonds” by Russell H Conwell 1. The speaker got the audience attention by the tone of speech and he......

...The Longest Day, the Shortest Speech "The troops, the air and the Navy did all that Bravery and devotion to duty could do." Address by Dwight D. Eisenhower Written in case of failure of D-Day Invasion, Normandy, France on June 6, 1944 In my analysis of this speech, I have found that the speech fails to adhere to the guidelines of informative speech. Although it meets a few of the guidelines, the speech overall is unsuccessful in the essence of providing the vital information needed to make it a worthy informative speech. In it’s opening sentence, the speech violates the guideline “Don’t be too technical”. The speaker’s use of words such as “landings” and “foothold” are technical jargons that the ordinary audience would not be able to fully comprehend. His speech is more directed towards the military savvy audience than the common citizen and leaves a lot to be desired. The speaker could have improved his speech by using less specialized words. Although sometimes, it becomes difficult to put military terms in easy to understand language, the speaker could have used words such as “attack” in lieu of “landings” and “control” instead of “foothold”. This would have made it much easier for the audience to understand and relate to the scene. Also, in the opening sentence, the speaker violates another guideline “Don’t overestimate what the audience knows” about the topic. He refers to......

Manuscript Tesco

...Tesco Dear London School of Economics. My name is Jacob Breinholm and I am the PR manager for Tesco. I have been working for Tesco for four years now, and it have been four good years. On behalf of Tesco, I am here to tell you about our firm and our problems after the fall in the shares back in January 2012. In this speech, you will hear about the grocery store, Tesco. I will tell you about the downturn we have had in 2012, the problems we had, and which efforts we used to get back on track. The 12 months in 2012 have been terrible for Tesco. We have experienced a huge fall in our economics. Previously it went really well for Tesco, and we had a higher sale than we have today. Investors once called Tesco a darling of the U.K. stock market, until January where everything went down for us. The shares has fallen by 20 percent. After this fall in market shares, my boss the longstanding chief Terry Leahy who have been CEO for Tesco for 14 years, have just gone off. The new CEO for Tesco is Philip Clarke, and it was not a nice sight he met the first couple of weeks. Experts have said that Mr. Clarke need to reconnect with customers and change the business’ culture. We did also launch the Fresh and Easy at the worst time possible, just one year into the financial crisis in 2008. We did also make some obvious mistakes though. We had no coffee in the store, as the first thing in the morning, there was no frozen food as Americans like and so on. That is why investors have called...

Speech Preparation

...Speech Preparation Reflection Alicia Ramos COM/110 April 25, 2016 Linda Price Speech Preparation Reflection The best way to prepare for a presentation, one must consider the best method, the type of presentation and the audience for a given topic. There are four different types of presentation methods they are; Impromptu, Extemporaneous Speaking, Using a Manuscript, and Memorization. Each of the four methods is appropriate in certain situations. Impromptu is a speech that frequently involves no preparation time and forces you to think on your feet. With no opportunity to prepare, you must rely on what you know. Extemporaneous is a speech that involves preparation and practice. This form of delivery has many advantages. Specifically, speakers can maintain a personal connection with their listeners and respond to their feedback. Manuscript is a speech where everything is written out. The speaker reads the manuscript word for word. Memorized is a speech that has been committed to memory. This method may be useful when you know you will be receiving an award or recognition so you make sure you thank the right people. An informative speech is one that informs the audience. This week our assignment was to do an informative presentation. I know when doing an informative presentation I must inform my audience strictly with facts. I decided to do the presentation about my company and services we provide because I wanted to inform my audience about social services......

...Brittney Chandler Dr. Teri Maddox SPEECH 1010-06 31 January 2012 “Listening is a 10 Part Skill.” Listening to another person speak can be very difficult sometimes. A lot of students might find sitting still and listening to someone lecture or saying a speech can be quiet boring. All audience should be content and pay attention. Some students tend to get distracted though. There are times when I am like that and can get distracted by my own thoughts. Good listeners focus on central ideas. Poor listeners concetrate too much on trying to commit too many facts to memory too fast. Being flexible in note taking is a very important skill. If you write too much on your notes you could easily get misplaced in your speech and things can get very unorganized. To have nice prepared notes you should write main topics and highlight the main details to keep the speeker on track. Also if a speeker over writes too much on their notes they tend to sound like reading aloud instead of saying a speech. Another problem is a lack of eye contact. Keeping your head and mind open and clear will help you be an attenative listener. A lot of students may get distracted and let their mind wonder while there is a speaker making a speech for the class. For example, students will think about what they might be doing the coming up weekend. The listener should be full focused on the speaker. They should be making eye contact and sitting up. If the listener is sitting up and leaning forward......

Ceremonial Speech

...Ceremonial Speech Manuscript I would to thank all the RAZZIE members for selecting my film as the worst in 2010. I didn’t think that making an eighth installment of the Police Academy series was a good idea, but the studio made me an offer that was hard to turn down (especially after my wife saw all those zeros). The studio started me off with a decent script, but every other day a different executive would visit the set and make a “suggestion” that isn’t really a suggestion, but rather since I am here I need to look important and pretend that I am earning my paycheck. Despite all my protesting, executives don’t like to be told no, even if they have never written, directed or produced a movie. They took what could have been a decent movie and turned it into a wild sequence of special effects and explosions. How bad did it go? Well here are a few quotes from some of the movie critics: * “Utterly preposterous, just when you thought the series might get revived.” * “Where to begin counting the misdemeanors of this miserable, soulless travesty?” * “Abysmal...a serious miscalculation.” * “Apparently, somebody thought it was time for a series reboot. Clearly, somebody was dead wrong.” * “Exciting and exhilarating, the series is coming back” (I pretty sure this was meant for a different movie). While the film was not a complete waste, I have to thank all the actors and actresses for not giving up half-way through the movie. Despite all the......

This paper presents an overview of speech synthesis approach, its applications and advancements towards modern technology. It begins with a description of how such systems work, examines the use of text-to-speech software and try to apply this technology to the DMCS project for evidence of benefits of text to speech applications for people engaged in different fields and the level of accuracy that can be expected. Applications of speech synthesis technology in various fields are then explored. The document concludes with potential uses of speech to text in various fields, likely main uses of the technology in the future. TEXT TO SPEECH – INTRODUCTION A Text-To-Speech (TTS) synthesis is a widely used technology that should be able to read any text aloud, whether it was directly introduced in the computer by an operator or scanned and submitted to an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) system. Let it be more precise, systems that simply concatenate isolated words or parts of sentences, denoted as Voice Response Systems, are only applicable when a limited vocabulary is required (typically a few one hundreds of words), and when the sentences......
