POP QUIZ!

Do you struggle creating an engaging message? Test your knowledge with these questions and learn how to craft content that best connects with your audience.

TRUE OR FALSE?
To start my speech, it’s important to introduce myself.
FALSE!
It’s more effective to hook your audience with a story, quote, interesting fact, rhetorical question, etc. The emcee should introduce you, or you introduce yourself after the hook in your introduction to establish credibility.
TRUE OR FALSE?
Signposts happen naturally in a speech.
FALSE!
Speakers need to be intentional about signposting throughout their speech. Signposts are verbal indications or signs of where you’re going in your speech. Examples include, “First, second, third,” “Most importantly,” “Above all else.”
TRUE OR FALSE?
You should end your speech with “Thank you,” so the audience knows you’ve completed your speech.
FALSE!
You should be clear by ending your speech with a poignant thought. The audience should be thanking you for giving the speech.
