Effective Conclusion

Effective Conclusion

Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14

SUMMARY: In your final remarks, appeal to your listeners to accept and apply what they have learned.


  • Connect your conclusion to your overall topic. Restate or rephrase your main points and theme.

  • Motivate your listeners. Show your listeners what to do, and give sound reasons for doing so. Speak earnestly and with conviction.

  • Keep your conclusion simple and brief. Do not introduce new main points. Using as few words as are needed, make a final appeal for action.
