Communications in British Party Politics

This seminar will examine the factors that make a speech effective

A Showing of 'Speeches that shook the world'.

  • What makes a good speech?
  • Why do some political communicatiors resonate, whilst others seem to fade into the background?
  • How do you recognise a game-changing speech when we hear it?

This documentary examines these issues and others, by deconstructing the components of an effective speech, those who deliver them and the communicative devices that are employed.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion and debate with: Kevin Theakston, Tim Heppell, David Seawright, Richard Hayton and Andrew S. Crines.

All are welcome!
