Every speech, talk and presentation you do will be different, so it’s impossible to give an actual script that you can use for every occasion. Sometimes you’re searching your brain for that “little something” that will spark you to start off or finish a thought.
Assembled here is the next best thing! A collection of lines, phrases and words that you can use to slot in to any script! So, whatever it is you are writing, you will find snippets that can be used for …
At the bottom I’ve also listed a collection of Powerful Words. Use these to beef up any presentation you are writing. I know you will find plenty of useful material. Treat this as an ideas source rather than a finished script. Like a buffet meal, select little bits from each section and put them together like a Jig Saw Puzzle!
