Careers standOur students often do group presentations as part of their course work and we support them with material on our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)’s LRC English, Maths & Study Skills page. On Monday 11 November Simon Armitage presented a fantastic programme on  BBC 4 called Speeches that Shook the World. The programme looked at speeches and speech makers that have had great impact. These included speech writers for Tony Blair when he was prime minister as well as famous speeches like Martin Luther King’s I had a Dream SpeechEarl Spencer’s speech at Prince Diana’s funeral and Emeline Pankhurst.

The programme gives you tips on building a speech to wow your audience. Here’s a taster of material you can borrow from us on public speaking and presenting.
