Using your review tools to finish your speech is one of the key to success. When you are not writing your speech your mind is relaxed and will ponder on thoughts that could prove helpful. Review those thoughts to see if anything comes out that can fit into your speech.
The week you are to give the speech is at what time you will require to conduct an overall review. This will deepen your understanding, as well as bring your concepts together. You can also add or delete areas if the light comes on during this review. Sometimes we fail to see things at the time we are writing.

The checklist should incorporate the details you want to add to the speech, as well as incorporate the main points you want to bring out in the speech. You should also include the items you want to bring to the speech area in the checklist, such as what you will wear, what you want from the speech and more.
Flash cards are handy reviewing tools that you can take to the speech area. Flash cards have two sides often in which you can write questions on one side of the cards and answers on the other side. You can add notes to the flash cards during the writing of your speech as you move along to bring back the associating points.
Mind maps come from memory, which could prove advantageous since you may see things you didnâ€™t see before. Since the brain works from association it has information stored which could spill out as you relate words.
Even by checking your keywords in the speech you can create mind maps. Keywords are associating words that link to a complete topic. Use these keywords to the fullest as you move along, since it will keep the mind sharp also.
