How to Write an Original Oratory
With Thanks to Delose Connor
I. Why Oratory?
Never underestimate the power of a persuasive speaker. Wars have been started, fought and
won over the power of a powerful speech. Elections are not won by good politicians, but the best orators. Being able to speak persuasively will help you to get what you want, whether it is the car keys from your parents, a good grade from a teacher, a date from the most popular person in school, or even atrophy at a tournament. Speaking persuasively will empower you to get what you want. Long after the tournament is over you always have the power to speak persuasively, professionally, and powerfully.
