By the end of the guide, you‘ll be able to:

  • Overcome your nerves and anxiety
  • Deal with difficult questions and interruptions
  • Engage your audience
  • Moderate your volume, pitch, and tone for maximum impact
  • Reflect on your own presenting style identifying aspects where you feel you excel as well as where you need to improve

I'm well on my way to being a fantastic public speaker, and I owe it all to the advice in this book. When it came to speaking in public, I used to be quite apprehensive and dreaded 'my turn to speak.' This book did a fantastic job of making me feel at ease and confident.

I think this book is the best book of the topic.

This book assisted me in ensuring that my workshop is structured in the proper order to educate rather of flitting from one topic to the next, never smoothly going toward the end objective.

Simple instruction and easy to follow audible!

Excellent content. Isn't your typical self-help book with the same old advice; instead, this author focuses on motivation, overcoming fear, producing ideas, and a slew of other excellent suggestions that I haven't seen in any other book. I wholeheartedly recommend it!

Good audio book for anybody

This is fantastic. I particularly enjoyed how simple it was to read. I'm still reading it, but the ideas are simple to understand and, more importantly, apply. This book has a wealth of information that you may benefit from, but you must first read it and analyze it before applying the ideas.
