What is the SpeechOutline App?

Follow a Process

The SpeechOutline process guides you step-by-step when preparing a speech or presentation. It was explained in Cam Barber’s book What’s Your Message? on pages 141-165.

Clarify Your Message

Most speakers don’t know their message! It's usually lost in the details. Ask yourself this: Can you state your easily repeatable message right now? Out loud? In the exact words you’ll use in front of your audience? And, will that message get you the results you want?

Structure Your Ideas

The human mind is overwhelmed easily. If you don’t structure/segment/seperate your ideas, they will float right over your listener’s head. The SpeechOutline App helps you create a ‘Chunk Structure’ to highlight memorable points and keep people engaged from start to finish.

How does The SpeechOutline App Work?

Endless Sticky Notes

The SpeechOutline App uses a cool metaphor of Sticky Notes on a template. Drag them from the left and build your Chunk Structure. They're color-coded - yellow for key messages and white for details. Read the FAQ for more information.

Automatic slides

When you're happy with your outline, choose 'export' to download a file that opens instantly in PowerPoint and automatically creates slides which contain your Chunk Structure in a persuasive slide format. (You can also export to text or PDF). Read the FAQ for more information.

Share Your Outlines

OMG this is a great feature!
Not only can you work on outlines together, your  shared outlines will appear in the other users' list of outlines. This is a great way to ensure everybody stays on message! Read the FAQ for more information.
