A Narrow topic?

Paul Evans in his DYNAMIC and tested book Instant Speaking Success recommends a narrow topic. Why? Because narrow persuasive speech topics enable pin-point accuracy and creates a memorable message. Imagine the applause ... when your audience has a clear "take home" message, one that is readily understood.

Paul's proven formula (I know because I use it!) ...

Narrow Topic + Head + Heart = Bull's Eye Speaking

Aim for the Bull's Eye with YOUR narrow persuasive speech topics.

Paul then expertly demonstrates how to recognise, find or create YOUR narrow persuasive speech topics. He continues to explore 'What do you want people to think'(Head) and to feel? (Heart).

This then identifies YOUR purpose, outcome or destination. You cannot commence a journey without a destination, otherwise you simply wander. All of Paul's ideas work , an excellent resource for success, and well worth a look.
