1. Conversational

Conversational style is commonly termed as conversational as it is designed to sound just like a normal conversational voice tone.

Mostly done by TED talk and some Toastmasters speakers.

In addition, online teachers record their videos in a conversational tone for their students.

This style of delivery is best implemented in online courses and tutorials.

2. Poetic

Poetic style of delivery is mostly done by politicians where they speak like they are reciting a poem.

This style of delivery is full of emotion and rhyming words and sentences to captivate the audience’s attention in a way that they can relate.

The speaker can use this style to impress the audience with his oratorical skills and sweet rhyming words.

This style of delivery is best implemented in debates, oratorical speech contests, and stage productions.

3. Bombastic

Bombastic style of delivery is mostly done by preachers and persuasive speakers wherein they persuade their audience to believe what they are saying.

A bombastic style is very effective in persuading the audience to do something or act on something that could benefit the community and is geared towards a cause.

Strong provocative words are used and the speaker’s volume is also higher compared to the conversational and poetic.

This style of delivery is best implemented in persuasive speeches, speech contests, churches, political campaigns and old school debates.

Every speaker has his or her own unique style of speech delivery. Know your capabilities and shine in your own chosen style.
