Evaluating Speeches


To be successful, a speech must be interesting to listen to; it must be able to keep the listener's attention throughout. The listener should feel she/he has enjoyed the experience and benefited. Listeners need to be held by content and delivery. The delivery should enhance the content but no overwhelm it.
