Bas Andeweg & Jaap de Jong

In May 2004, Bas Andeweg and Jaap de Jong defended their dissertation “De eerste minuten. Attentum, benevolum en docilem parare”. In this research project, Andeweg and De Jong addressed three questions about the introduction of speeches: Which techniques are speakers advised to use in the introduction of their speech? Which techniques do they actually use when giving a speech? And what are the effects of the techniques used in the introduction on the audience? An English summary of their research can be found here.
