My speech of explanation was about three key stages of grief when a loved one died unexpectedly. I think I had a creative idea for this speech and went about the topic in a different way than most would. One of my strengths of this speech was the emotion I brought to it. It was a very personal subject so this was easy to do.
A weakness of my speech was that I should have incorporated more of the billboard slides into my speech. I should have created a new slide for each of the different stages ans elaborated further from a visual aspect.
