Great example of a 5 Minute Speech to Inform

I love to play Scrabble. I love to play Scramble on Facebook, even though I have a bad habit of getting crushed there. Heck, I even read a book about Scrabble.

The video below is about how to win at Scrabble, but I’m posting it because it is an outstanding example of how to give a five minute speech to inform.

Why is it good?

  • This speech uses humor, but the speaker doesn’t tell jokes.
  • It informs but never preaches.
  • The speaker never reads a slide.
  • Demonstrates a commanding knowledge of the subject.
  • Demonstrates early on that the speech will have something for everyone.

  1. I had no idea you were a Scrabble fan! We will have to play sometime. Particularly if we can get my brother to join us. He is rediculously good at it. Although first, we will have to agree on which dictionary to use. I presume you have most of the 2-letter approved words memorized? 😉

  2. This is exactly the kind of pleyar that I’m training myself to go up against. I’d probably lose if I played Mehal TODAY, but give me a year. I WILL memorize most of the good words. Keep in mind that Scrabble is not a game of infinite possibilities word-wise. And in my online Scrabble playing trends have already started to emerge. And I’ll know if the other person is lying about their word choice.
