Overview

Corporations and associations spend millions each year on professional speakers who can move people from where they are to where they could be. Through motivational speeches, speakers reinforce audience values by addressing peoples' emotions. To persuade, a speaker must also add logic and evidence. Narrative, humor, metaphor, poetry, and even music help speakers achieve their goals. This book offers a recipe for creating speeches that connect with audiences, motivating and persuading and remain in the audience's hearts and minds. "Speak to the heart," says author Hanoch McCarty. "Find what is at the core of your audience's concerns. Keep your eyes and ears tuned to finding out those central, most important feelings, concerns, issues, or values and speak to them directly. That is the key, the foundation, the secret to the art of motivational speaking."
