This is an episode for: Speakers, speech writers, and anyone in need of a bit of inspiration.
It’s Graduation Season and that means Pomp & Circumstance, free graduation party food and, of course, commencement speeches.
And speeches are a kind of PRESENTATION.
Steve Jobs’ Stanford 2005 Commencement speech is widely regarded as one of the best. But what makes it so powerful? What kind of story devices does he use?
And how did he come up with this stunning Carpe-Diem-esque quote:
“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
Mikey breaks it down and shares how you, too, might make an impact with your next toast speech.
