Figure 7-4.–The three purposes of public speaking. Informative  Speeches Informative  speeches  are  meant  to  give  the audience new or additional information on a relative subject.  Sea  Power  presentations  would  qualify  for informative  speeches.  A  speech  to  local  educators on  educational  opportunities  in  the  Navy  would  be another  example  of  an  informative  speech. Entertaining  Speeches Entertaining  speeches  are  meant  to  amuse  the audience  and  provide  enjoyment.  Rarely  is  this purpose   used   alone. In   the   area   of   recruiting, entertainment will be secondary to one of the other purposes  of  public  speaking.  Acknowledging  it  as  a secondary purpose to your speech can have obvious benefits.  People  normally  will  pay  closer  attention to  a  speech  that  also  provides  some  enjoyment. FACTORS TO CONSIDER - PREPARATION Before setting pen to paper to start your speech preparation,  there  are  several  considerations  you will  want  to  make.  Your  point  of  contact  should  be able  to  provide  information  as  to  type  of  speech expected,  your  audience  composition,  and  physical surroundings. Know Your Audience It  is  important  to  know  a  little  bit  about  the people  who  will  be  listening  to  your  speech.  What are their needs and interests? What is their current knowledge   and   experience   level? Background information can be very helpful when preparing the speech.  You  want  to  prepare  your  speech  on  their level and be able to relate your topic to things they already understand   or are interested   in. Personalization   is a key ingredient to public-speaking  success. Physical Surroundings It is also important to know what your physical surrounding will entail. If at all possible, you should make a visit beforehand to the room where you will be speaking. Note lighting conditions, acoustics, the size  of  the  space,  and  available  equipment.  Taking this  time  to  ensure  the  surroundings  will  be adequate  can  prevent  some  embarrassing  surprises later. KEY POINT OUTLINE Now you are ready to develop your speech. The easiest way to organize a speech is with a key point outline, which includes the parts of a short speech: the  introduction,  the  body  or  presentation,  and  the conclusion   or   close. By  writing  only  a  key  point outline, you avoid the tendency to read your speech. You appear to speak almost extemporaneously, but in  reality  your  outline  makes  it  seem  that  you  are well  prepared. Introduction The    introduction should   start   with   an appropriate  greeting  to  your  audience.  You  should then introduce yourself and your topic. Give a brief history of your background to credentialize yourself. To complete the introduction, you need an attention getter  of  some  sort.  Some  people  like  to  use  a  joke or   humorous   anecdote   that   correlates   with   their topic.   You   may   just   want   to   let   them   know why  the  topic  is  important  to  them. Another attention-getting  technique  is  to  ask  a  rhetorical question that you will answer in your presentation. Body  or  Presentation This is the part of your speech that delivers the information  you  have  planned  for  the  audience  to 7-16
