A message that has the power to change lives for the better, if only in a small way.
Images and stories, words and phrases that are both evocative and provocative.
A connection with the audience that communicates understanding, respect, and a desire to be of service.
A delivery that brings the message to life.
One of the most important elements of a speech is often missing: the person of the speaker.
Who you are as a person determines the audience’s interpretation of what you say, whether and to what extent they trust your message.
Who you are as a person shapes their response: their willingness to support, endorse, or implement your proposal.
Who you are as a person influences their engagement: their emotional and intellectual investment in your presentation.
