Books: The testimonial game is so over

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

 Testimonials have become mere window dressing in an era in which we watch our pennies and are short on the time needed to read a book. Those who provide the testimonials also cheapen their brandname.   When books used to be published by the late Christopher Hitchens, no one cared about testimonials. If I am going to pony up 20 bucks for a book, what do I care that a laundry list of brandnames praise it?

Famous Speech Friday: Fannie Lou Hamer's 1964 convention committee testimony

The Eloquent Woman

It's an unflinching testimony. It was feared that the Freedom Democrats would sway other southern states to break ranks and diminish support for Johnson, who went so far as to schedule a last-minute news conference to divert attention from the testimony. Take the listener from the low to the high: As horrifying as her testimony is, Hamer brings it back in that last paragraph to the noble ideals of democracy, a contrast so stark that it's almost like a slap in the face.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

So, the testimonials of 35 women in New York Magazine who contend they were his sexual-assault victims seem to be a little late in the game. The Bill Cosby story has moved on to be a legal one. Female lawyer Monique Pressley could make a big name for herself in criminal law if she keeps him out of prison.

Crisis Communication – Time Heals (Many)Wounds

Matt Eventoff

BP CEO Bob Dudley, who took over for Tony Hayward , spoke earlier today at the Confederation of British Industry. The following lines have gotten the most attention so far: Over 87 days as the oil kept flowing into the ocean, it frequently felt as if we were the only story on the news, 24/7. I have seen figures that in some months fully 30% of the 24-hour news coverage was devoted to the incident.&#

BP Crisis Communication – Lines Litigators Like

Matt Eventoff

BP, after a late start getting out of the “damage control gate&# , developed a fairly effective central message: “We are a responsible party. Our obligation is to deal with the spill, clean it up and make sure the impacts of that spill are compensated. And we are going to do that.&# – BP America CEO Lamar McKay May 11, 2010. However, a number of comments that followed were decidedly off-message.

Famous Speech Friday: Edwidge Danticat's testimony on death in detention

The Eloquent Woman

You can read the full transcript of her testimony here.) Why was Danticat's testimony so effective?

BP – It’s What You Say AND How You Say It!

Matt Eventoff

Message and delivery. Having a message is crucial – delivering that message effectively is just as crucial. The equation for effective communication involves both message and delivery. All too often, companies and individuals in crisis learn this lesson the hard way.

Matt Eventoff

From Bloomberg Businessweek : In his testimony yesterday, Hayward not only failed to convince lawmakers he was committed to making BP safer, he may have deepened suspicion of the company by repeatedly pleading ignorance to events that took place under his command, said Matt Eventoff, a partner at New Jersey communications firm, Princeton Public Speaking. “Mr. Any goodwill that the company bought back yesterday eroded today with his testimony.”.

The Eloquent Woman

There's no video of her testimony, but th e Salt Lake Tribune produced its own transcript of Elizabeth Smart's testimony so you can read her spoken words, which contain a great deal of graphic language and description.
