Fire it Up! the Power of Public Speaking

This is a great little story from that tremendous orator, Barack Obama. Shortly before the US presidential election, he delivered this speech and it serves two great purposes for us: it is a masterclass in using storytelling in your speech.

Watch his use of body language, vocal variation and timing particularly. If that isn’t enough for you, look for his masterful use of narrative to hold the attention of his audience throughout and deliver a powerful message by using the tricolon technique.
