Oprah's presentation technique

  1. Start with a story: It illustrates shared values.
  2. Be personal and vulnerable.
  3. Give credit to others: Sharing appreciation is not just a nice component of your speech, it is table stakes for taking the stage.
  4. Speak about important topics.
  5. Keep it short: Short speeches can also be more memorable.
  6. Cast a vision: No matter what you’re talking about, make sure your message is positive and future-focused

What makes Obama's speeches memorable
  1. Transcendence. By using concrete and tangible language, he can transport audiences to another place and actually paint a portrait that they can see in their minds’ eye.
  2. Repetition. Used artfully, it helps to clearly emphasize one idea and make it memorable.  
  3. Gestures and voice. He uses gestures to punctuate nearly every sentence. He also uses his voice effectively: He slows it down, lowers his volume, and pauses for impact.
