Al Gore Connected Articles

Indexed - Falling in Love

And to close…

For speech inspiration, here’s an index card gem from Jessica Hagy.

Use contrasts in your speeches. Contrasts, as we see here between “falling in love” and “marriage of convenience,” are a classic speechwriting element. You can use contrasting concepts as the base for your speech, or you can use contrast as an effective technique to make your points clearer to the audience.

Jessica’s book Indexed is an inexpensive, but rich source of speech inspiration.
