How to Give a Motivational Speech

Giving a motivational speech | BCBusiness

1. Rely on extremes. You dropped out of school or you were top of your class at Yale; in your business’s first year you almost went bankrupt. Or you made millions.
2. Let your hands do as much talking as your mouth.
3. Always use a wireless mic. Taping a handheld to your face is better than encumbering your moneymakers (see tip number 2).
4. Rhetorical questions are your friend. Do you want to succeed at this or not?
5. Don’t be afraid to get cosy with the crowd.
6. Content isn’t nearly as important as drama and stage presence.
