The Sir Winston Method. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 18 years ago. From someone who conducts 75+ public speaking presentations per year and teaches public speaking for a major university, let me say that this is the single best, most concise book ever written about public speaking "do's and don'ts". It's simply shameful that such a helpful book is out of print. If you can find a copy, snag it up as quickly as you can. Excellent for creating confident, interesting speakers.

Draw a picture in the listener's mind

Impress your audience with an opening zinger. Draw a picture in the listener's mind. Transform dry abstractions into powerful pictures. Express feeling from the heart when you cap your speech.

In The Sir Winston Method, James C. Humes explains Winston Churchill's aversion to such phrases. Churchill once told an associate, "I never say, ‘It gives me great pleasure,’ to speak to any audience because there are only a few activities from which I derive intense pleasure and speaking is not one of them. You may think you need to open with an acknowledgement or praise of your hosts. The Seven Strategies of Master Presenters.

Great book
I thought I was reading another book on public speaking / speech writing, but when I read James C. Humes, "The Sir Winston Method: the Five Secrets of the Language of Leadership" I discovered public speaking for a leader necessitates the language of leadership.

Humes claimed on the opening pages that this is not another speech book, this is a leadership book. Good use of language, I thought. Then I read the book, he convinced me that the Sir Winston method is an opportunity to get better in the language of leadership. Whether it be the big talk or simply the opening introduction, you need to know the language of leadership. Whether it be a planned presentation or preparing for a meeting, you need to know the language of leadership.

n his book, Humes quickly covers Churchill's 5 secrets:

Secret 1: Begin strongly: Impress your audience with an opening zinger.

Secret 2: Focus on one theme: A speech is like a symphony. It can have three movements, but it must have one dominant melody.

Secret 3: Use simple language: Toss out the beat-around-the-bush jargon of bureaucrats and pick up your pace with personal, colorful language.

Secret 4: Draw a picture in the listener's mind: Transform dry abstractions like "private enterprise" into a powerful picture like "the sturdy horse pulling along the cart of democracy," as Churchill did.

Secret 5: End with an emotion: Express feeling from the heart when you cap your speech.

Some of the secrets I learned over the years, such as the power of a strong introduction and focus on one theme what many call "the big idea". Where Hume helped me is in the chapters that talked about drawing a picture, especially in the use of language. Churchill wrote speeches with more of a poetic flare than with an emphasis on prose. The book challenged me to look at how I use language in a speech, and how to use more of a rhythmic style.

The take away that intrigues me from this book that I have yet to try is one that Humes says both Churchill and Reagan mastered, the snapshot/snatch plan. Typically when I speak I have written out the manuscript but know it well enough to just use words and phrases as trigger points to tell the story/illustration I have developed. The snapshot/snatch plan is to write a great speech and then read it. Typically that's done according to Hume by those who give either poor speeches or great speeches. The difference (besides the quality of what is written) is the delivery. Poor speech readers never pause, never look up, they just read. Great speech readers, like Reagan and Churchill, look down, grab a snatch. They then look up pause, then deliver the snatch/the line and pause again.
