One difference between speeches written to be given publicly and presentations written to be viewed online is that the former is given before a live audience at specified time and place. The later may be shared, viewed, and reviewed at the reader's convenience.

A speech given live has other significant differences from an online presentation. First, with a live speech you need to think about establishing a positive relationship with the audience while you do your speech writing. Plus, your physical presence (your appearance, posture, etc.) makes a difference with a public speech. Also, you may need to work in breaks for your audience and a question and answer session.

The steps for writing a speech for public speaking are for similar to the steps for writing a presentation in general. However, at each stage of the writing process you need to keep your audience in mind.

Research Your Audience
Whenever you do any type of writing you need to consider who you are trying to reach with your writing. Speech writing is no different. In general, the more you know about your target audience the more effective your writing will be in reaching them.

Once you've defined your audience, you can gear your speech towards them. To do this, ask yourself questions like:
What does this audience need?
What problem can I solve for them?
Is there anything else I need to consider about my listeners?

While it's always a good idea to keep a speech focused, this will be especially important for a short speech.
If I were writing the public speaking speech for the scenario we're working with, I'd narrow the topic down like this:
Create a list of the strengths for the areas I need to address
Compare the lists.
Focus my presentation on my strengths to meet weaknesses.
