Public Speaking

    Kinds or Forms of Speeches: # There are many different occasions that call for some one to address a group of people. Some are more formal than others. You must consider the audience, the occasion and the purpose before determining the tone, language and content. Persuasive speeches will use different tactics than most social occasions often using humour. Announcements have their own distinct formalities to gain gravitas. Informative speeches use a more serious approach.
