” We’ve known some presenters who will even add a notation to their notes to “start clapping” and “shake speakers hand” or “give speaker a hug” depending on the circumstances of the speech. Now that we’ve walked through the basic parts of an introductory speech, let’s see one outlined: Specific Purpose: To entertain the audience while preparing them for Janice Wright’s speech on rituals. Introduction: Mention some common rituals people in the United States engage in (Christmas, sporting events, legal proceedings). Main Points: 1. Explain that the topic was selected because understanding how cultures use ritual is an important part of understanding what it means to be human. 2. Janice Wright is a cultural anthropologist who studies the impact that everyday rituals have on communities. 3. All of us engage in rituals, and we often don’t take the time to determine how these rituals were started and how they impact our daily routines. Conclusion: I had the opportunity to listen to Dr. Wright at the regional conference in Springfield last month, and I am excited that I get to share her with all of you tonight. Please join me in welcoming Dr. Wright (start clapping, shake speaker’s hand, exit stage). 505

Speeches of Presentation The second type of common ceremonial speech is the speech of presentation. A speech of presentation is a brief speech given to accompany a prize or honor. Speeches of presentation can be as simple as saying, “This year’s recipient of the Schuman Public Speaking prize is Wilhelmina Jeffers,” or could last up to five minutes as the speaker explains why the honoree was chosen for the award. When preparing a speech of presentation, it’s always important to ask how long the speech should be. Once you know the time limit, then you can set out to create the speech itself. First, you should explain what the award or honor is and why the presentation is important. Second, you can explain what the recipient has accomplished in order for the award to be bestowed. Did the person win a race? Did the person write an important piece of literature? Did the person mediate conflict? Whatever the recipient has done, you need to clearly highlight his or her work. Lastly, if the race or competition was conducted in a public forum and numerous people didn’t win, you may want to recognize those people for their efforts as well. While you don’t want to steal the show away from winner (as Kanye West did to Taylor Swift during the 2009 MTV Music Video Awards, for example . mtv. com/videos/misc/435995/taylor-swift-wins- best-female-video. jhtml#id=1620605 ), you may want to highlight the work of the other competitors or nominees. Speeches of Acceptance The complement to a speech of presentation is the speech of acceptance. The speech of acceptance is a speech given by the recipient of a prize or honor. For example, in the above video clip from the 2009 MTV Music Video Awards, Taylor Swift starts by expressing her appreciation, gets interrupted by Kanye West, and ends by saying, “I would like to thank the fans
