“According to most studies, people's number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy.” Jerry Seinfeld How do you feel when asked to speak in public? Excited and inspired, or nervous and apprehensive? By understanding where nerves originate and planning effectively you can deliver a presentation that; captures the audience and is unique to them, is inspirational, increases your professional standing, contains a pivotal mix of media and has everyone talking about you for the right reasons. This book covers; audience, content, presentation, use of visual and auditory aids, 'hook' introductions and common presenter 'fears'. In order to gain maximum benefit, there are exercises and practice spaces in order that you can see which elements discussed suit your style and presentation best. By the end you will have practiced and gained; insight, tips, skills and techniques and will be well on your way to designing and delivering a polished, confident and competent presentation.
