Power words

Power words are action verbs. They are words that you can use to help make your statements stronger. By using action verbs, you can assume an active voice instead of a passive voice as you speak. I suggest you consider using some relevant power words in your presentation so you increase the strength of your message.

Here are some examples of power words. For a full list you might like to go to my website: www.michellebowden.com.au/dontpicturemenaked
