What Speakers Can Learn from Paul Harvey’s Successful Formula

with Dr. Bill Lampton

Why did so many millions listen to him for so many years?

What can every speaker learn from Paul Harvey’s success?

a. He did not let criticism distract or discourage him.

b. He stuck to his unique style.

c. He used suspense with the skill of a mystery novelist.

d. He featured everyday people, not just internationally known leaders.

Summary: Paul Harvey succeeded for an extraordinarily long time, in a very tough business, not because of any success secret hidden from the public and from his competition. He did what we can do to become superlative speakers; overcome criticism, stick to your preferred style, create suspense, and spotlight what’s commonplace that listeners would relate to quite easily. We may not attract millions of listeners, but those that do hear us will welcome our homespun creativity.
