Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anyone who gets anxious about speaking in public has no doubt been given the same tiresome advice again and again. "Just open with a joke," or "just picture your audience in their underwear." If you've ever tried these suggestions, you've no doubt noticed that they are both ineffective and rather disturbing.

Nothing will help you feel more confident than having a carefully planned, thoughtfully written and well-rehearsed presentation. Speak Smart is your roadmap to a winning performance, as this guide shows you how to:
  • Write and prepare captivating presentations
  • Decide whether to ad-lib, prepare an outline or follow a script
  • Set your jitters aside
  • Skillfully use visual aids
  • Be aware of your body language
  • Keep control of question/answer sessions

    Included in the book are detailed lessons on:
  • Speech and nonverbal communication
  • Writing great presentations
  • Choosing a presentation format
  • Choosing visual aids
  • Preparing for the big speech
  • Adapting to speaking environments
  • Fielding questions
  • Speaking through the media
  • Diaphragmatic exercises

  • Synopsis:

    Nothing will help you feel more confident than having a carefully planned, thoughtfully written, and well rehearsed presentation. Whether you are planning a marketing presentation, trying to persuade a local zoning board, or making an acceptance speech at an awards banquet, Speak Smart is your roadmap to a winning performance and we'll show you how!
