Discussions from Media and Communications

Absolutely in agreement with Bill. In speeches or conversations, "I" is the more stilted word to be used, however when it comes to personal mistake or setback, it's the most appropriate word to use manifesting humility. The word "We" is to be used when accomplishment or achievement is involved. For criticism, it's "They" to used to appear more authentic.

Important aspects you bring attention too. Distractions can make one lose the audience and cause loss of impact. Also reminds me how Sir Winston Churchill used this to his advantage by a hat pin in his cigar trick while in parliament to distract his colleagues during speeches by his opposition.

Thanks Dr. Najib - I think he handled it well by having Jay Carney relay his apology, rather than issuing a statement or addressing it directly in an interview - which is not to say that the question won't be asked in a future interview. The subject matter is a minefield, of course, so he has to appear to be taking it seriously while not making too much of it.

Bill, I agree that overall presentation really matters, but for men wearing make up, can it harm them to be mistakenly taken as an artificial cover up than realistic ?
