Conceptually Yours...

Fellow speaker,

Author Jeremy Donovan's in depth study of World Champion speakers suggests personifying your concept.  For example, if you are talking about the concept of "love," create a "love" character with specific qualities (e.g., describe love as a beautiful person who has problems with their sight).  Similarly, personify the opponent to your concept as well (e.g., create a "hate" character who works against the interests of the "love" character).
