Event description

Description

The Australian Institute for Progress invites you to hear the Hon John Howard launch his latest book The Art of Persuasion, Selected Speeches 1995 to 2016 over lunch in Brisbane.

As Australia's second longest serving prime minister, he knew how to run a good government, but he also knew how to deliver a good speech.

"The essence of a good speech is that the speaker should have something to say which he is resolved to convey to his listeners in the simplest, most intelligible, and most persuasive language." Sir Robert Menzies, Australia's longest serving prime minister.

"If you want to govern a free people successfully for four terms, here's how." John O'Sullivan, former speech writer to Margaret Thatcher, Britain's longest serving 20th Century prime minister.

John Howard could convey more in a single speech than lesser politicians articulate in a lifetime. Through tragedy, discord and triumph, he addressed the mood of the nation with uncommon good sense. This selection is a reminder of the values and conviction that made our second longest serving prime minister such a persuasive orator.
