What can we learn from political speeches to apply to our own presentations?

Quite a bit!

For this episode, we watched speeches given by former First Lady Michelle Obama, Senator and Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren, and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (known as AOC).

I’m joined by one of our speaking coaches Diane Diaz as we talk about the similarities and differences in their speeches, including:

  • Understanding who their real audience is
  • Using certain stories and historical references to relate to their audience
  • The impact of visual imagery when telling a story
  • Repetition of key phrases
  • The change in tone and content between Michelle Obama’s 2008 and 2016 DNC speeches – and why
  • The role authenticity plays
  • Stereotypes that women leaders have to overcome
  • The generational differences we see with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s speaking style

This episode is part of our Storytelling series, episodes 137-140.
