Now comes the most daunting part of the evening.

Whether at the golf club, a work conference, a family re-union, or a local association, many people who are not practised public speakers are sometimes called upon to make an after-dinner speech.

If it is not something you do regularly, it can be a daunting experience.

But banish all fear.

‘The Instant After-Dinner Speech’ is an invaluable guide to how to deliver an oration that mixes erudition, wit, and inspiration in perfectly judged quantities. With a range of tips and tricks and a template to work from, it will help you create a speech so brilliant it will be remembered for years.
