What do Promoters, Politicians and Poets have in common?

They woo you to buy their products, to vote for them, and to enter into their world of beauty and emotions, with the powerful use of three words, three phrases or three sentences. Sometimes it could just be a repetition of the same word, said three times.

The use of such three’s in English is called TRIADS, or sometimes known as the 'Rule of Three'. This is one of the most common forms of rhetorical devices in communication.
This technique in oral communication (and writing) is so powerful, it is capable of moving the hearts, minds and souls of many people throughout history, even to this day.

When you are presenting a Toastmasters speech or doing a business presentation,
  1. Would you like to fixate your audience’s attention at the outset of your speech?
  2. Then rivet them throughout your speech as you bring them your personal and awesome message?
  3. And finally to nail them into agreement with your idea or proposal?

If so, you need to ignite your speech or presentation with the Power of 3.

Whether you are speaking to inform, persuade or motivate, do you want your audience to understand, agree and be inspired by what you are saying?

If so, you need to ignite your speech or presentation with the Power of 3.
