When passion boils over- why the ‘p’ word is irrelevant for most speakers

Further to my previous posts on the irrelevance of passion for most corporate speakers, here’s a man who is on the very edge of insanity (Where passion without empathy, balance and distance, leads).  The speaker seems so full of emotion- anger and indignation mostly- that it’s affecting his ability to think, speak and connect with the unseen audience.

What do you imagine it was like to be sat in this audience, covered in spit fleck, being lambasted by this guy?  And what was he trying to achieve?  Do you think he made the point that he wanted to make?

It’s fabulous piece of video –

I got the piece from a post by Tony Coll, speechwriter, maker and trainer. See his blog for more good stuff.
