It’s no secret that Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies are becoming increasingly popular and powerful tools to help people with a variety of tasks. But when it comes to writing a speech, using AI may not be as straightforward as it seems. While AI can provide assistance in terms of researching and organizing content, it still requires a significant amount of work and effort to craft a speech that stands out. In this blog, we’ll explore how I used AI technologies to attempt to write a persuasive, engaging speech.

I started by asking my AI app “How do you use AI to write a public speaking script?”

This was the response.

When it comes to public speaking, crafting the perfect script can be a daunting task. From finding the right words to memorizing your lines, it can be difficult to stay organized and present yourself in the best light. Fortunately, artificial intelligence (AI) can help you create an impactful public speaking script with ease.

AI-powered tools can help you craft a speech that resonates with your audience. By understanding your audience’s interests and passions, AI-powered tools can suggest topic ideas and provide you with hints and tips on how to improve your presentation. Additionally, AI can analyze your writing to identify any areas that need improvement, such as structure, grammar, and flow.

When it comes to writing your script, AI can help you edit your work quickly and efficiently. By utilizing natural language processing (NLP) algorithms, AI can detect and correct any spelling and grammar mistakes, as well as suggest better word choices. AI can also help you create a more engaging script by providing you with suggestions on how to capture your audience’s attention with storytelling elements and emotion.

To make sure your script is error-free and professional, AI can also help you with the proofreading process. By using machine learning algorithms, AI can scan your script for any typos, grammar errors, and inconsistencies. Additionally, AI can provide you with real-time feedback on how to improve your script and make it more impactful.

Finally, AI can also help you rehearse your presentation. By using text-to-speech (TTS) technology, AI can read your script out loud, so you can get a better understanding of how your words flow and sound. Additionally, you can use AI-powered virtual reality (VR) systems to practice your public speaking in a simulated environment, so you can get a better feel for the performance and craft a more engaging presentation.

That’s not too bad! It’s a bit repetitive in places, but it’s easy to understand. So, the next thing was to ask the app to “write a speech on the benefits of having an executive coach.” This was the response:

Good morning everyone, Today, I’m here to talk to you about the pros and cons of executive coaching.

Let me begin by telling you a story. A few years ago, I was a young executive working in a large corporate environment. I had a lot of responsibility, but I was feeling overwhelmed and uncertain of my capabilities. I was struggling to stay on top of my tasks, and I was feeling like a failure. That’s when I decided to try executive coaching. I had heard that it could help executives become more successful, so I decided to give it a try.

At first, I was hesitant. I wasn’t sure if I was ready for the commitment and I didn’t know what kind of guidance I could expect.

But I was determined to make a change, so I decided to go ahead with it. The results were amazing.

With the help of my executive coach, I was able to develop a strategy to better manage my workload, delegate tasks and stay on top of my responsibilities.

I was also provided with tools to help me stay focused and motivated. The experience changed my life. I felt more organized and confident in my abilities, and I was able to make a successful transition into leadership roles.

But executive coaching isn’t always the right choice for everyone. There are a few potential drawbacks that you should be aware of before making the decision to take part in executive coaching.

The first is the cost. Executive coaching can be expensive, so you should make sure you’re willing to invest the money and have enough resources to get the most out of the experience.

Another potential downside is the time commitment. Executive coaching requires a significant time commitment from both the coach and the executive, so make sure you’re willing to dedicate the necessary time and energy to get the most out of the experience.

Finally, you should be aware that executive coaching isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Every executive has unique needs, so you’ll need to find a coach that’s the right fit for you and has the experience to help you reach your goals.

To sum it up, executive coaching can be a great way to help executives become more successful, but there are some potential drawbacks that you should consider before making the decision to take part in executive coaching. Thank you for your time and attention.

Ok, so a bit vanilla and could do with some more emotive language. But there is a good foundation and concepts that can be used to construct a more captivating narrative.

Next I used the AI to generate a more interesting story. I prompted the app with ” my executive coach helped me deal with a debilitating condition I had kept secret. include a detailed example.” This is the result:

I had kept a debilitating condition a secret from everyone—including my family, friends and colleagues—for a long time. I suffered from crippling anxiety and panic attacks, which made it difficult for me to engage in social situations and everyday activities. I felt ashamed and embarrassed, so I kept my condition hidden from the world. Then, I decided to work with an executive coach. At first, I was hesitant to open up about my condition, but eventually, I mustered the courage to reveal my struggles. My coach was incredibly understanding and compassionate. She provided me with support, guidance, and strategies to help me manage my anxiety. For example, my coach taught me techniques to help reduce my anxiety in the moment. She encouraged me to practice deep breathing and mindfulness, which helped me to stay grounded during stressful situations. Additionally, my coach provided me with long-term strategies to help me build my resilience. She taught me how to identify my triggers and develop effective coping mechanisms. My coach also helped me to create a plan to disclose my condition to my family, friends, and colleagues. She provided me with resources to educate myself and my loved ones about anxiety and panic attacks. She also helped me to craft a script so that I could explain my condition in a way that felt comfortable to me. Thanks to the support and guidance of my executive coach, I was able to take steps to address and manage my condition. I felt empowered to take control of my mental health and take ownership of my condition. I was finally able to be honest with the people around me and accept the help and support they offered.

This story is a bit more interesting but still lacks personality.

My key takeaways from this activity:

  1. If you put in garbage, you’ll get garbage out. If you’re not precise with your commands for the AI, the result will be uninspiring. Give thought to what you exactly want.
  2. Verify each line of the output. The content can be incorrect, redundant, or dull.
  3. AI is a huge timesaver. It can be used to generate ideas, outlines and content and break through writer’s block.
  4. AI can offer valuable prompts on topics you may have not considered.

Overall, Artificial Intelligence is an indispensable tool in any toolbox.
