The Best Speech
Topic Of All Time
In this public speaking training article, I'm
going to reveal to you the absolute best speech
topic of all time.
Now, don't panic if you think your speech topic
is different, because I'm going to show you how
to make a slight adjustment to your speech topic
so that it's within the "framework" of the best
speech topic of all time.
Okay, drum roll please... Here's the number one
best speech topic of all time:
Money is without a doubt the hottest topic and
until money disappears from the Earth, which is
not very likely, money will remain the hottest
speech topic until the end of time.
Making money, how to make more money, how to
stop losing money - these are speech topics that
will never, ever get old and people will always
flock to hear.

skills and communication skills.
Again, this is simple: being a better leader
means being able to motivate groups to be more
productive which translates to increase company
profits which translates to raises and promotions
for that leader (or more take home pay for the
owner, if the owner is that leader).
Same thing with communication skills: being a
better communicator can lead to generating more
clients and closing more sales which... yep, means
Being able to tie your existing speech topic
into making more money is the key.
Simply think about the benefits of what your
speech topic offers people, and use the examples
above to stimulate your thinking into how that
ties into being more productive and making more
There's an old saying: "you don't sell the steak,
you sell the sizzle".
So don't just talk about leadership, or massage,
or communication skills - talk about the results
people will get from being a better leader or
more relaxed or a better communicator.
Moreover be sure to tell people about all the
benefits they'll receive. For example, making

it into the best speech topic of all time!
