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

Product Description:

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.
