9780134193861: A Novice's Guide to Speaking in Public: 10 Steps to Help You Succeed in Your Next Presentation... Without Years of Training!

This book has one simple goal: to help you succeed in your next presentation or speech.

 

You don’t need decades of training to achieve this goal. You don’t need the eloquence of Lincoln or Churchill or Martin Luther King. You just need to learn and practice 10 simple rules...and we mean simple.

 

Michael Lawrence Faulkner helps you apply basic truths about human nature and nonverbal communication to get your audience on your side, and keep them there–from the moment you walk on stage to the moment you leave. You’ll learn how to prepare well, enter with confidence, own your space, and deliver a message that is clear and powerful.

 

Nervous?  Of course you are! Everyone is. But Faulkner shows how to make your fears serve you, not immobilize you.


Imagining the worst?  Everyone does. But, as Faulkner shows you, those disasters just won’t happen.


Made a mistake?  Everyone will. But you can move right past it, like it never happened.

 

Other public speaking books aim to make you brilliant...and they fail. This book aims to make you very good: better than most speakers. That’s a goal you can achieve–and with Faulkner’s help and a little practice, you will.

 

Practical, simple ways to

  • Keep your language simple
  • Make your fears work for you
  • Prepare a conversation, not a speech
  • Walk with purpose and confidence
  • Make and keep eye contact
  • Own your speaking and your space
  • Ignore your mistakes and keep going
  • Stop worrying about worst-case scenarios
  • Finish strong
  • Know when to ignore the rules

From the Back Cover:

“This is a remarkably insightful guide to giving successful presentations or speeches—something we all need help with, no matter our level of familiarity. Given Dr. Faulkner’s 40+ years of presentation experience to C-level executives, I only wish that he had written this book first in his prolific career because I needed this advice ten years ago! So, don’t hesitate to perfect your whole presentation now—read it today!”
Kevin Noonan, Sr. Consultant, NBCUniversal
