41 Movie Speeches to Inspire, Dissect, and Discuss

Lynn Meade


There are so many helpful videos and activities that I want to share with you so I decided to create this overflow section.  Whether you are a student wanting to know more, a business person looking for insights, or a teacher looking for classroom ideas, these extra activities and resources are here for you.



I have sent out calls on social media for people to give me speeches they like and any replied with movie speeches. Since I found them inspirational, I thought I would share them here. Watch them and be inspired, dissect them as a public speaking exercise. Think deeply about the hows and whys of speech, but most of all, allow yourself to be transformed. I believe that ultimately that is what all speech is about–transformation.
