Making a Short Speech or Toast

Making a Short Speech or Toast

Most people are called upon to make a speech or toast at some point in their lives.


This book will help the inexperienced speaker to stand up with confidence, and deliver a really effective speech or toast that is appropriate for the occasion. It also contains a variety of toasts and quotes to help those with more experience in public speaking.



There are guidelines on how to prepare and deliver a mini speech, including tips on introducing humour and how to avoid embarrassing your audience with inappropriate material. A special section includes interesting quotes and toasts to insert into a wedding speech, whether it’s by the best man or woman, bridegroom or father of the bride.

A workbook section helps the reader with ideas for appropriate beginnings and endings to speeches. There is even an A-Z of sample toasts for all occasions including anniversaries, achievements, and business occasions; and for a range of subjects such as love, life, and friendship.
