The quote is an attention-grabber, since it is written in colorful language. The blue section ties the entire speech together with a small twist.

Whatever type of speech you decide to write, you should include certain elements:

  • clever quotes
  • amusing stories with a purpose
  • meaningful transitions
  • a good ending
