Tone denotes the reaction and feeling associated with the content a person presents portrayed via the intonation of the language used. It not only captures what a writer wishes to pass across but also how the message was said (Henry et al., 2012). Using an appropriate tone is very important, considering it informs the audience of the writer’s attitude towards their audience and the subject matter they are sharing with the audience (Henry et al., 2012). My plan will predominantly be presented using a formal and persuasive tone. Doing this is vital since it allows me to relate better to my audience’s needs, interests, and emotions. Once this happens, the audience will feel a more robust engagement with the information I will be sharing, which then creates a better connection between them and me.
