Despite heavy criticism of Ukip and of their leader, Nigel Farage seems to be gaining in both momentum and popularity. So what is it that makes him appealing? To many he may seem repellent in his beliefs and his manner, but others are drawn to him. If you put politics to one side and simply analyse his communication style you can begin to understand why.
I've been influenced by a number of speakers and thought-leaders over the past 5 years, but for me the individual who consistently hits the right tone on the topic of communication skills is Dr Nick Morgan. A former teacher of public speaking at The University of Virginia and Princeton in the USA, he now works with corporations and individuals to help them truly 'connect' with their audience.
