Great attention getter, it links very well into the lessons he would like to share with us in the rest of the speech. The speech is well organized and has a nice flow.

The speaker shows much enthusiasm and attracted my attention from the beginning. Though, after a bit the enthusiasm felt like he was giving a holiday sermon in shull, as appose to a casual speech on reaching for the sky.

In all I was you kept my attention every moment to your next words and I feel it was a great speech, especially for an impromptu.

like i have said before, ill say it again, content and oraganization is superb. your speech is informative full of examples, follows a three topic evidence structure yet like before i have to criticize your delivery. Volume and pitch was good, but your posture needs improvement. you have a tendency to sway back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. I dont know about the aduience but your swaying took away concentration from your actual speech making you less interesting. Don't forget about your time limit. I have said it, the prof said it, random people in the comment section said it, you spoke for way too long. We live in a day and age where if we expect a 4 min speech and its longer than 1 min our minds already start to wander. keep it short (not that short) and keep your posture, then you'll be perfect.

I find it interesting that 90% of the criticism on here thus far is about the length of the speech. I should hope that there is more to talk about with these speeches than just how long they spoke. (Although I myself am guilty of criticizing someone about the length of their speech- I did at least give a reason as to what I felt made it too long).

At any rate- to get to this speech, I thought you did an excellent job. The one thing that struck me as unnecessary was the way you stretched out the start of your speech. I mean- I'm not sure what the first several sentences really added to your speech... You bumped you head, realized where you were, spoke to a stewardess??? I mean- you did have an interesting opening statement but I feel you probably should have jumped straight to the " Sky is the limit" motto

woah, no one commented yet.......where is everyone?! Dovid Rotblat you on vacation or something?! ok so i might as well get the ball rolling.....so Mark your speech was good but way toooo long. Its supposed to be a 4 to 5 minute speech, not 8 min. You were the last speech of the day, no one wants to sit through such a long speech, especially after a fast.

Alrighty guys the rest is up to you! I crave feedback!
