Speech evaluation on CC # 4
Smile at the speaker. TM Priscilla, Congratulations.
You have achieved your speech objective. You have communicate your ideas clearly, accurately and vividly by applying the golden rule of Keep It Simple and Short
(Sweet) throughout your entire speech. You used lots of descriptive words that created mental image and there is no jargon being used. Well done. TM
I like your speech title, "The Quest For One". You not only raised my curiousity to find what is the One you are talking about, but also keep me in
suspense before you told me the question that you hated to answer- "What are you going to study?" I can't imagine that how it can bother you so much until
you told me that you even ran to hide in a corner. That really fascinated me to visualise your feeling at that particular situation.
To make it more impactful, perhaps you may throw us question such as "How many of you have questions that you hate to answer?" I believe everyone has, right?
Follow by telling us that you too feel the same way in your speech.
I also noticed that you have good story telling skills where you are able to describe very well your emotion at that particular situation and time. Well done and give her another round of applause.
Perhaps , another point which you may add to your speech is about your facial expression when you hear the hated question of what are you going to study? by raising your tone. These will generate much greater gravity in term of magnitude.
Your eye contacts are good, though not balance. You had been more inclined to build eye contacts with the audiences at your left hand side. To complete and have a wider coverage, perhaps you should make full use of your stage and build eye contacts with your audience at right hand side especially when you raised those questions in your speech.
One last and important point is that you have good voice projection, loud and clear and I believe you should capitalise on your gift.
Well done, TM Priscilla and I look forward to your next speech. Give HER another round of well deserved applause.
