Five Parts | Start Here

A useful framework for preparing a speech – or a piece of writing – was first devised by the ancient Greeks. They called it rhetoric. Here are the five parts:

  1. Invention
  2. Arrangement
  3. Style
  4. Memory
  5. Delivery

Please take a look around.

Part 1. Invention: what impact do you want?

Sketched hand on keyboard, with some letters and numbers indicated, others blank
Part 2. Arrangment: choose your material.

Part 3. Style: where you polish it up.

Part 4. Memory: How to keep it all in mind?

Part 5. Delivery: when it all comes together.

Bonus Case Studies: Learn from others.
