You know what an "average" speech looks like. You've seen tens, maybe hundreds of them in your lifetime. Chances are, you've given a few of them yourself. They're good, and they're useful, but they're not awe-inspiring.
You might also know what an amazing speech looks like -- one that's engrossing, captivating, and inspires action. These speeches grab your attention from the very beginning and imprint us with something memorable by the end. Sometimes, they feel like magic.
While a lot of credit should go to a person's oratory skills, there are elements of great, memorable speeches we can bring into our own practice.
