Speech conclusions

These are the three things you should try to do in your speech’s conclusion:

1 Summarize your main points

2 Stimulate a response or action

3 Provide a sense of closure


And here’s an example:

[Conclusion for a speech about good things to eat and fun things to do in three night markets in Taipei]

[1] As you can see, there’s good eating and good fun in these three Taipei night markets. [2] So the next time you find yourself with a free evening, take your pick and go with a friend. You can try some of the food and entertainment options I’ve described. [3] If you do follow my suggestions, and find them to your liking, well, you know who to thank. And if you don’t find them to your liking? I say “to each his own”! Night markets are full of choices and I’m sure you’ll find something delicious and entertaining… Thank you very much.
