SIX WAYS TO OPEN AND THREE WAYS TO CLOSE
Our research shows us that opening and closing is what speakers at all levels of business find the most difficult. They are also the most important parts of the pitch, because the opening is when you set your stall out and the close is when they applaud (sometimes).
This is a truly unique journey and even your most accomplished speakers will learn a shed-load of stuff. We use the opening and close from some of the biggest political pitches in history to elucidate, then give you a chance to go for it in less than a minute.

Deconstructing ConstructionDeconstructing Construction
What you choose to say and how you choose to say it always matters: and it matters more when a cast of many are listening to every word and critically appraising every slide. Barack Obama’s seminal speech on race, A More Perfect Union, will be used as an exemplar.
