And here at Black Tie Events located in Melbourne, we’ve come up with a ‘how-to’ guide when it comes to writing speeches for special birthdays.

To begin writing your speech, it’s important to keep in mind the occasion and keep it personal. This can be done by touching on a special story shared between yourself and the birthday girl/boy. Making a toast or including a simple congratulations on their milestone.

You also want to remember to keep it engaging, so you might want to use humour, for example, to keep everyone on their toes wanting to hear more.

When it comes to keeping eye contact, as a quick reminder don’t forget the rest of the attending guests as well as up keeping eye contact with the person who is celebrating their milestone.

It’s also important to keep your speech brief too and not to have it rather lengthy. Perhaps try to keep it to a maximum of 3-5 minutes.

As you are thinking of writing your speech, think of it similar to how you would write a story; in the sense that you want to have a beginning which contains your introduction – this one doesn’t need to be long at all.

Then you will have the majority of your content in the middle section of your speech.

Lastly, you want your ending to be your conclusion as you wrap up your speech.
