Speak Up: 11th Edition

In this Edition:

“A speech, a speech, my kingdom for a speech”
Following the article in our last newsletter about preparing for a conference, Alastair Grant looks at the art of speech writing. The key point about speeches is that you are writing for the ear, not the eye. Guiding you through the use of English language: clarity, tense, imagery, similes, metaphors, personification, climatics and anti-climatics. This article has it all!

“Figures of speech – the debate continues”
The debate is in full swing and we would love to hear some more of your views. We are keeping this running for another edition and have come up with some Christmas figures of speech to keep you going over the holiday period.
