"The Treasures of Rhetoric

Duration: 2 days

Persuasion is an art. You will discover the secrets following in the footsteps

of the grand masters of ancient Greece and Rome.

You will leave this course fully equipped for each stage in the production of

a persuasive speech.

I organize my thoughts

The first requirement of a persuasive speech is to know your subject. You will practice choosing the contents that are appropriate to the constraints of the situation, the time available and the type of auditorium.

I organize my speech

You will then need to learn how to include a strategy into the delivery of your presentation. To achieve this, you will familiarise yourself with the meaning of each part of your speech. You will also learn how to guide your audience by manipulating rhythm and tone.

I work my style

Style is the foundation stone of public speaking. It is style that can truly create an event and surpass a merely informative rendition to unite, enthuse or galvanise your audience into action. You will become accustomed to using figures of speech that have been tried and tested.

I exercise my memory

Above all, efficient communication requires a detachment from the text in order to dedicate oneself to the auditorium. You will practice delivering longer and longer speeches with less and notes.

When ?   To be determined
