1. Oral Presentation:
Introduction: Welcome to country.
First and foremost, I will acknowledgement the traditional owners Brisbane and Keppel, the Darumbul people, the Woppaburra and the Turrbal people. Then go on to say how proud, humbled and honoured I am to be here and thank the people in my electorate that voted Labor.
Overview of where Keppel is.

Shoalwater, Weerriba, Stockyard, Byfield, Canal Creek, Maryvale, Woodbury, Greenlake, Lake Mary, Barmoya, Farnborough, Yeppoon, Sandringham, Mulara, Cawarral, Emu Park, Mount Chalmers, Koskeligh, Nankin, Thompson Point, Normal Gardens, Frenchville, Mout Archer, Koongal and Lakes Creek.
To create interest and context I shall use the rhetorical device- anecdote (Literary Devices 2016).
Growing up on a small property in Central Queensland, my family and I would often drive to Yeppoon to visit family. When I was young and still to this day, Saturday morning is a special event for my family and I. The early birds of the family, that being my mum, my nan, my pop and myself woke up just after sunrise, to go down to the local showground’s and get the the best produce at the markets.
Key Message #1. Support local businesses.
What happens when you suppourt local businesses. Graph / research.Environmental impact of supporting local businesses.Not just good for the community, but good for the environment.
Key Message #2.
Environmental Conservation. (Following on from previous slide, talk about how supporting local businesses conserves the environment).
Key Message #3.
Holding audience’s attention is a fundamental challenge that all public speakers face (Lawrence 2015). Due to nature of this speech, some audiences may lose interest so in this slide I aim to embed another rhetorical device that I am yet to establish to hold the audience’s attention.
Summary of key points via use of rhetorical device – repetition.
I found this task productive as it is essentially scaffolding the final assessment. Although the slide produced is very basic and nowhere near as detailed as I would like, this week really helped in getting my thoughts organised for the content of the speech.
