This is a brilliant example of using persuasion tactics in a presentation to accomplish your goals. Obviously, it is a movie, but when I teach my presentation skills courses, these are some of the critical things we discuss.

  1. Know your goal
  2. Know who your audience is, their background and more
  3. Know your audience’s motivations and emotional needs
  4. Know your material and be confident in your knowledge
  5. Use passion wherever you can
  6. Speak to your audience
  7. Remember it is all about them, your audience and not you

All in all a pitch perfect presentation and persuasion example. I am adding this to my curriculum.

Great movie too, by the way. Now available on HBO.
