2: My chooesed original speech person subject:Jack Ma’s Original Sales Pitch in 1999

   Instructor: Jack Ma   
Jack Ma is a Chinese business magnate, investor, and philanthropist. He is the co-founder and former executive chairman of the multinational technology conglomerate Alibaba Group. In 1999, he and his entrepreneurial partner returned to Hangzhou to start planning their business. The purpose of Ma’s speech is to explain to his entrepreneurial partners that his entrepreneurial purpose is to make Alibaba an international company. Alibaba’s vision is to go out of China and become an Internet company with international influence.   This speech is important because it is an excellent example of how to inspire and motivate people to follow their dreams, even against all odds. At the time, only a few people in China embraced the promise of the new Internet, and Mr. Ma still needed to determine whether his company would survive. The second important reason is that Ma Yun’s family background is not an official or a business tycoon, his graduation school is far from first-class in China, and his academic performance could be better than his contemporaries. However, this speech showed his excellent oral expression ability and high confidence, and his international vision was far beyond that of Chinese business people at that time. At the time, no one was optimistic about the Internet in the Chinese business world.  Moreover, the last reason that is very important is that now he is an entrepreneur with international reach, and he is now a business magnate with world political reach. In his speech at that time, he was a fledgling young man who did not have any advantages compared with people of the same age who joined the company after graduating from university. However, he developed Alibaba into an Internet e-commerce giant with international influence in his later life, which indicated that his promising outlook on the Internet was a successful investment.  The target audience for this talk can be anyone who dreams about starting a business regardless of their country, ethnicity or age, or social status. The audience should have an essential background in the Internet, business, and technology. However, the grammar of this speech could be more academic, and an adult can understand the general meaning of the content with an elementary level of English who has been to junior high school or above.
