Synopsis:

A great speech is more than just a slick presentation. It requires interesting ideas, presented in a clear and memorable way. This presentation guide is designed to help people master every aspect of public speaking, from researching and writing the speech to preparing the manuscript, delivering the speech, and handling questions from the audience. Each chapter reproduces excerpts from some of the most eloquent and powerful speeches throughout history.

About the Author:

Richard Dowis (Waleska, GA) recently retired from his position as senior vice president at the PR firm of Manning, Selvage Lee. He now leads several popular business-writing seminars and is the president of the Society for the Preservation of English Language and Literature. He has also won PRSA Phoenix Awards for speech and annual report writing. His books include How to Make Your Writing Reader-Friendly and (as coauthor) The Write Way.
