“Dear Mr. Najera: Eloquence and speech are not the same. Expressing one’s ideas is easy; expressing them with style requires forethought. Your insight shared during Ameritech Cellular’s Advocacy Panel summit did not go unnoticed. On the contrary, your discerning vision left me with a well-founded reference point. Congratulations on being recognized for your expertise. Your eloquence is rare and admirable; it reflects the confidence and knowledge reserved for people with a winning attitude.”
Maria Verduzco, Ameritech Cellular
The Human Element – Audiences aren’t buying so much into the speaker’s information or knowledge; they are buying into a story. Their Story! A speech should not be a series of points accented by stories. It should be a series of stories the audience can relate to accented by relevant points.
Heart – This is about passion. It’s hard to define and it’s hard to tell someone how to get it, but you can tell the ones that have it — the ones who are in the moment and who, with every fiber of their being, tell you that they believe in what they are saying. They are the ones telling you what’s in their heart.
Humility – The ability to take yourself off of the pedestal and be real. Did we tell you that Gabriel Najera is a former seasonal farm worker? He has not lost that connection to his humble beginnings and the grass-roots workforce!
Humanity – This is about serving the audience. The speaker is there to serve the audience. It’s not about the speaker. It’s about the audience.
Uniqueness – This might be the most important because it’s about telling the story the speaker was meant to tell.
Humor – Audiences love to laugh and over time they may forget the speaker’s points but they will never forget that the speaker made them laugh.
K.I.S.P. Them – Keep It Simple Please! The speaker should always look for a simple way to present and to elaborate points that would explain in detail how it affects the audience. Gabriel does just that.
“Gabriel, I hope all has been well with you. I want to thank you yet again for coming and speaking to us for our Cinco de Mayo luncheon. The board has got together last week and we were all commenting on how wonderful your talk was, but more importantly the buzz that it’s created. We’ve seen more folks come “out of the woods” and want to get more involved. I would like to think that it was the work of our board but quite frankly, a lot had to do with your motivational speech. Thanks again!”
