Season 7 of “Game of Thrones” is off to an epic start with plenty of foreshadowing. My favorite was Sansa’s quip that she learned a lot from Cersei.
Still, I can’t see Cercei holding the Iron Throne to the end, and Daenerys Targaryen seems too obvious. Might Tyrion navigate his way to last imp standing? We’ll see.
Regardless, this seems like the perfect time to revisit our SlideShare deck on persuasive language that borrows a “Game of Thrones” scene from season 5, episode 8. This is the scene where Tyrion either wins over Daenerys and lands her chief counselor gig or ends up in the fighting pit for an unhappy ending, at least from his perspective.
Tyrion’s performance puts TED Talks to shame.
Just little old Tyrion commanding the stage with guile, strength of conviction and language with the gravitational pull of a magnet over ore.
