In this section, you'll find a variety of sample speeches for different occasions. These speeches are meant to serve as models for how you might clearly and effectively organize and present ideas and information in speeches with specific purposes. You'll find that, as they were written for the sake of demonstration, most of them are somewhat generic and relatively short. When writing your own speeches, you usually will want to make them longer and include more details and specific information related to your own particular aim, audience, occasion, and venue. However, you can certainly use the speeches here to provide you with ideas and examples.
