How to tailor a speech for different lengths

In my last post, I talked about the three types of speeches you need for your business. One of them was the front-of-the-room speech. The thing is, you’ll need that same speech in different lengths. In this video, I give you some advice on how to tailor your presentation into different lengths.

In summary, you take your outline for your longest length and edit it down to fit short lengths. The longer the speech, the more in-depth you can with your topic. The shorter the speech, the fewer details you can share.

Would you like me to speak at your meeting or event? I am available to speak to your group, both in-person and virtually, on a variety of topics. For more information, visit
