How to Craft a Winning Speech
Ladies and gentlemen, Imagine for a moment that we are in a different time and place. The year is 1995, and instead of being here on a corporate campus in west St. Louis County, we are in the Grand Ballroom at the Washington D.C. Hilton for an elegant black-
tie dinner party. Tonight's dinner is a celebration and the highlight will occur in just a few minutes when the CEO of one of America's best-known companies takes the stage to receive the highest award for achievement in the aerospace industry - one that has been given in years past to
Orville Wright, Chuck Yaeger and Neil Armstrong. The CEO will then give a short speech.
