What is it that makes a speech great? Why do we need speeches at all? Informed by Philip Collins’s own experiences as a speech writer, When They Go Low, We Go High (Fourth Estate, 2017) is a passionate defence of the power of good public speaking to propagate and protect democracy and an urgent reminder of how words can change the world.
In a book launch at the Blavatnik School, Philip Collins will present his publication, with a Q&A to follow. The event will be moderated by Chris Deerin, political columnist and journalist. The book will be on sale at the event.
