Winning speeches

  1. 1. By: Joha Rahman
  2. 2.  The higher you ascend the corporate ladder, the more you need to use the winning speeches.  The US president, Obama, displayed his exceptional ability to drive points by his mesmerizing keynote.
  3. 3.  Give them hope. This can be done if you yourself believe and remain hopeful. When the going gets tough, people are facing uncertainty, not sure of the future, you have to come strong and provide the reason why optimism is the right course. Despite the problem US is facing, both locally and on international fronts, Obama brought the message of hope.
  4. 4.  People want winners and not a loser. A act with confident whatever the challenges you are facing. Put yourself as positive and healthy.  Obama delivered a speech full of optimism that rally his supporters behind him. This was what he said.. "we know the battle ahead will be long. but always remember, no matter what obstacles stand in the way, nothing can stand on the way of millions of voices calling for change.."
  5. 5.  Help your audience to create the mental pictures through your selected words  Use the five senses of virtual, auditory, kinesthetic, smell and taste images.  Example: In 2004, Obama painted a picture of the hope, when he said..." it is the hope of slaves sitting around a fire singing freedom song, the hope of a young naval lieutenant bravely patrolling the Mekong Delta...”
  6. 6.  Use metaphor to create a memory on your important points.  The metaphor will strengthen your drive, and give a new meaning to your words. The like of the cold war, when Churchill created the term “ the iron curtain" to describe the Russian. When the communist took over China, the term “bamboo curtain” was created.
  7. 7.  When Armstrong landed on the moon in 1969, he said,.. "one small step for man, one giant step for mankind". The method was used by Obama when he said.. "tomorrow you will be able to choose a policy that invest in middle class and create jobs that this economy will grow so that everybody has a chance to succeed. Not just CEO, but secretary and the janitor...".
  8. 8.  Anaphora is the use of repetition of the same word or phases at the beginning of the sentences. The best example that is widely acknowledged was the speech made by Dr Martin Luther King..."I have a dream..". It has the effect to reinforce the idea over and over again.
  9. 9.  It is the opposite of anaphora, when words or phases are being repeated at the end of the sentences. Obama use it in his speech when he said..."it was whispered by the slaves as they blazed through the darkness of the night,... yes we can. It was sung by immigrants as they pushed against unforgiving wildness,... yes we can.
