You can give on politics and the hot topic is who will become a prime minister, rather who should become a prime minister

Dear Harsh
The topic you would like to deliver speech must have relevancy with the audience. If the audience are your colleagues, and if you give speech on who will become prime minister or beauty tips then it will not have any use.
Rather you can select the general subject of Goal Setting, Public speaking, Personality Development, Motivation, etc., which will be useful for any type of audience.
But if you give such speech to your Management Team then select the subject of your specialisation and practice it before delivery, so that you can answer for any question being raised by your managerial team members.

You have asked a random subject without clarity, without your background.
What is the scope of this 2 minute speech?
What is the purpose?
Who are the audience?
What are the subject area?
Then only somebody can help you over here

Dear Mr Harsh,
Refer to the above by Mr. Bhaskar & Mr. Govind.
Whatever are you going to give the speech and presentation you have to clear about self of the object of the same.
That should be relevant to your subject and requirement of the audience as well as organization.

First of all thanks for replying, sorry for not putting my question in detail.
I 'm in a public speaking course where everyone needs to prepare for a two minute speech and that should be approx. 2mins.
Since all like friends we are concentrating on something motivational, inspiration and so on.
This is not a presentation, its just a speech in front of everyone.
So if possible could you please give me some handy speech.
Just like to add I was thinking of Arvind kejriwal however I have very less time to prepare so if anyone got some
speeches please provide, it would be really kindful.

Dear Harsh

Please do not speak what others have given you in writing. First of all you must learn what is public speaking. It is not the subject what you have to speak. It is the subject what you have to learn.

1. You should not have fear in your mind by seeing the crowd or audience.

2. You must have the confidence on the subject what you have selected to speak.

3. First and foremost thing you have to do is to seek permission from your instructor before speaking. This is the good manners.

4. Before start speaking to public just have a look on the eyes of the audience with confident and give the salutation, i.e., Very Good Morning Friends, or whatsoever it may be.

5. The start with the small story on the subject you have taken (the story can be for 30 to 45 minutes).

6. As this is the public speaking, do not use any class room tools like writing board, chart display or any other tools.

7. While finishing the speech close with some punch statement or moral of the speech.

Wish you all the best.

Thanks boss2966, however most of the tips you shared are known to me and some were really new and I thank you once again for that.
Here I 'm just asking you all people to suggest me a good topic which might be a story based on motivation, inspiration and so on.
It is just a 2mins speech, in short it should be so effective that people should remember for their lifetime.
I was asking for something in handy just because I have really short time to prepare, I hope you all understand.
I really appreciate any help provided !!

You may choose following topic
1. Who is a professional? How just having larger experience in a job role means not a professional and why a professional never lose touch base of the job
2. Difference between doing a work by setting a definite figure to get something and doing work passionately.
3. Why one need to upgrade their skills everyday and not just should focus on the job they are handling
4. How you brought positive changes in yours and others life- 2-3such examples

Dear Harsh288,

I have followed this thread with interest. Usually, I do not respond to questions such as yours, which do not give enough details of the person raising it and/or the reason for asking the question. Responding to such questions wastes a lot of time in providing general answers rather than give precise solutions.

People have given you a lot of ideas. You say you have not much time and, hence, you are looking for a ready made speech for 2 mins. We all have 24 hours per day and 7 days per week and how we use it determines how effective we are in Time Management. You can take this as the topic, if you wish. A topic that you choose should be one that you feel very passionate about. I feel passionate about this topic and have given a presentation to managers once.

I also feel passionate about Plagiarism and, hence, I have got involved at CiteHR. Another topic that I feel passionate about is explaining the difference between "Qualified" and "Educated". Many people of my parents generation were not qualified, but were highly educated. We have a number of Qualified people now as there are many colleges and universities awarding Diplomas and Post-graduate degrees. However, it is sad to say that some of the products from these can be classified as uneducated from their behaviour and actions.

So, I suggest that you kindly pick a topic of your passion, write the speech and post it here and seek feedback to improve it. If you do not like to post it in the general forum, drop a private message and seniors will be willing to give their email ID.

Dear Harsh,
You can the topic " Public Speaking" itself..You can put your point that what is public speaking.How one can execute it..What are the phobias when a person is speaking in Public and how one can overpower it..In the end you can say that Its just your observations and views.I may not be perfect but yes I have understood that Public speaking is an art some get it by birth and some have to yearn it.You find yourself lucky that You could speak in front of a very educated and expert Public..
Its just my Input to your query...If I would have been on your place I would have done something like this..
Seniors, Please correct me If I am wrong.
Good Luck Harsh !!!!
