Description

To deliver a good persuasive argument, you have to go beyond words. Communication means using every means at your disposal, which includes body language as well as voice tone and texture.

Use emphasis in words and body language to draw attention to key points. Put emotion into your voice.

You can also make good use of props in your delivery, utilizing images and simple artifacts, from cups to cupboards. Use props with drama, synchronizing them with key points of speech. Dramatically bring them out from a hidden place and return them when they are no long of relevance.

Discussion

By one study at least, words can make up a small proportion of a face-to-face communication. And by any chalk, much of personal communication occurs through visual and auditory channels (and sometimes tactile ones too).

In the original Latin text, this is 'actio' and 'pronuntatio'.
