His introduction captured the audience attention by playing his pianoand jokingly giving examples of how an eight, nine and ten years old kidplay the piano, argument that lead to the main subject of his speech.Letting the audience know that the purpose of his presentation was toprove the audience with an experiment that everybody can understandand love classical music
• He kept the entire audience engaged withconstant interaction using real life situations asexamples as well as keeping a strong sense ofhumor throughout his speech to successfullyvindicate his point of view.
• He used a piece by one of the greatest piano composers of all times (FredericChopin - Prelude in E-minor)
•Then proceeded to break it down explaining the audience its basic elements,structure, and the relationship between chords and notes making the crowd feelunderstand and relate with the musical composition.
In my humble opinion Benjamin Zander’s speech isabsolutely dynamic in terms of energy, audienceinteraction and comprehension.
I would give the speaker a 5 in terms of dynamism. Ishard for me to think a way it could have been moredynamic, I feel the audience was fully captivated and sowas I watching it.
Tips used from Nancy Duarte Benjamin Zander’s speech was presented in a very narrative compelling way; the human element is very well presented with his interaction and story framework. All those elements make his speech meaningful and memorable.
I’ve learned that speech deliveryis more fun interesting andcompelling when humor andinteraction are included.
If I were to compare Benjamin Zander’sspeech with Sir Ken Robinson’s I wouldsay the most comparable characteristic isthe sense of humor .
Though Sir Ken Robinson’s humor iscleverer is a clear element in bothspeeches.
