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

Making a presentation or speech? You don’t have to be the world’s greatest orator. You just need to be well-above-average. That’s plenty – and you’ll be amazed how easy it is to get there! In this quick guide, Dr. Michael C. Faulkner shows how to deliver a really good speech or presentation the very next time you need to: one that will delight your audience and pleasantly surprise you.

 

As Faulkner demonstrates, becoming a well-above-average speaker involves 10 simple rules organized into these three common-sense steps:

 

1. Applying some basics about human nature you probably already know

2. Incorporating a few non-verbal communication signals

3. Practicing some simple skills

 

Faulkner shows how to keep it simple (and keep your audience happy); embrace your fear and make it work for you; stay conversational; stride to the podium with purpose; make and keep eye contact; take control of your speaking and space; sail smoothly past your mistakes; finish well; and stop worrying about bad things that won’t happen.

 

You won’t be spectacular. But you’ll be better than 90% of the presenters and speakers you’re likely to hear and compete with: and that’s enough to manage practically any speaking assignment you will ever face.
