Anyone can craft an engaging speech.
You have to start with something that drives you.
Whether you’re speaking to one person or a thousand, once you find your big idea you can continue with a few key steps that will guarantee to keep your audience wanting more.

Say what the consequences will be if they don’t accept your offer.
And what the reward will be if they join your movement.
