This week I have a small task for you. I would like you to choose one of the three options below to complete.
Find your favorite piece of music and listen to the piece, write down why you like it. Do you like the tempo, the highs and lows is it the chords that are used or the words? Think about what attracts you to this particular song.
Watch your favorite movie and as above, write down what you like about the story, is it the characters, is it the drama or excitement, how does the story start and end.
Read your favorite book, poem or story and as with the film look at where the story starts, how are the characters described? what words are used and how does the story end.
You may be wondering why I’ve set you this task but over the next few weeks all will be revealed. We’ll be looking at why particular pieces attract us and how we can use similar principles and styles in our public speaking.
Keep speaking – Carrol
