Everyone wants to convey a specific message while giving a speech. But all too often it happens that as a listener you do not even know what was actually said in the end. This is mostly because many speakers do not properly structure their speech and can not properly weight their content. So how do you set up a speech so that listeners know what you wanted to convey to them?
The solution-oriented structure: You first describe the problem, then its causes, and then focus on the solution offering concrete solutions. This structure is almost universally applicable and is excellently suited to get to the point quickly.
In medias res: It means to start immediately with the most important point. So no long preface, introduction, greeting, etc. This structure immediately focuses about the relevant thing. The advantage is that you do not have to talk very long until the audience knows instantly which position you represent.
Chronological structure: You are telling, little by little, how something has developed, from the past to the present — and how it will develop in the future.
