MEDIA ADVISORY / INTERVIEW OPPORTUNITY: NATIONAL Public Relations Experts Available for Analysis of Trump Republican National Convention Keynote Speech

TORONTO, July 21, 2016 /CNW/ - Tonight Republican Party presidential candidate Donald Trump will deliver one of the most hotly anticipated political speeches in recent years to delegates of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio.

What he says, and how he says it, has the potential to make or break the Grand Ol' Party's chances to wrestle away the White House from the Democrats.

The pressure will be on the controversial businessman, author, reality TV star and, most recently, politician.

Experts from NATIONAL Public Relations, Canada's leading public relations firm, are available to provide analysis of "The Donald's" performance, including:

  • Body Language – Actions speak louder than words. What did Trump's actions and gestures say about the accompanying message?
  • Message – What topics did Trump focus on during this historic speech and how has his message evolved over time?
  • Words – Did his words stir up the right emotions and evoke passion or did he leave the audience uninspired? Does it matter who he alienated? Will Trump's fiery brand of populist rhetoric have an impact on Canada/U.S. relations...whether or not he wins?
  • Tone – Did Trump set the proper tone for the night and for his campaign going forward or did the audience go away questioning his commitment?

Available NATIONAL Experts Include:

  • Kim West – As Chief Client Officer and Partner at NATIONAL Public Relations, Kim leads the Toronto office consulting team of 100 professionals, and has advised some of Canada's leading organizations and corporations.
  • Ronald Alepian – As Senior Vice-President and General Manager, Ronald leads the firm's Corporate, Financial and Investor advisory practice.
