Public speakers of all descriptions ask, “how long should your speech be?” Well, it really does depend on what your audience is prepared to accommodate. And, of course, how long you can physically stand up and speak. Because it takes a toll.
Sometimes you just know what not to say in your speech. But then, there are others who seem blindly oblivious to the words they use in their speech. President Duterte of the Philippines certainly has form in this area. As does, Fikile Mbalula, South Africa’s Police Minister who has a firm grip on the matter in hand, yet seems oblivious to the reach of his words.
Most political party conferences are marked by their conference leadership speech. Dramatic and rhetorical, they inspire the party faithful and speak to the rest of the country. Your main conference speech can achieve the same results.
