Examples are drawn from real attorneys, Hollywood movie lawyers, and politicians to show how persuasive statements can be strengthened or weakened through story structure and delivery. This 60-minute course provides a solid overview of what a great opening or closing looks like … and what can happen when it goes wrong.
