Being able to see your success in the future can be extremely motivating for many. Throughout your life, including but not limited to your career, you may come across a variety of situations where formal information delivery can occur. For example, situations such as boardrooms, investor meetings, interviews, as well as formal events such as weddings, funerals, or commencement ceremonies.
At Full Sail University, for example, we have our Hall of Fame event. This event honors graduates who have stood out in their industry for at least 10 years. Similar to the idea of Homecoming, Hall of Fame is a week-long event with Industry Professionals, Speeches, Panel Discussions, and concludes with a formal award ceremony acknowledging the year’s inductees for their impact on their industry.
Last week we focused on how to communicate to an informal audience, this week we will be focusing on how to communicate with a formal audience.
The best way to begin any presentation is to understand your audience. Utilizing the principles of oral communication discussed throughout the month (Vocal Toolbox, H.A.I.L., Verbal and Non-Verbal Communication, Audience), create a formal presentation using the prompt below.
You have been invited to introduce one of the Full Sail University Hall of Fame Inductee’s at the Hall of Fame Induction ceremony. Your speech should not only introduce the inductee but engage and inspire your audience by sharing the inductee’s background and achievements.

Now, it’s time to plan your speech. With formal presentations, it is important to practice, practice, practice! After all, your audience is looking to you to provide a speech that is clear, engaging, and informative.
