A COMPLETE OVERVIEW OF RHETORIC

Putting the jigsaw together

 

Once you can break rhetoric down to its component parts, it becomes much easier to put it together in the way that gives your speech the maximum impact.

 

Structure is the saviour of the speechwriter and speaker. It enables you to deliver your speech based on what your audience needs. It provides the scaffolding for influence and persuasion.

POWERFULLY PERSUASIVE TOOLS & TECHNIQUES

The Science of Persuasion

 

We are hard-wired to respond to spoken communication. There are chemical changes that happen when our minds are stimulated by thought brought about by spoken suggestion. This is why storytelling is so powerful.

 

​Rhetoric has been built around this science from the days of the Sophists, to Aristotle, Cicero and up to the modern day. Persuasive speaking leverages the science.
