You’re about to discover not only how to confidently speak in front of a group of people, but how to influence and persuade them. I’ve been communication coaching for more than 15 years and have helped hundreds of people just like you.

Speaking effectively is a key ingredient to success in any profession. This audiobook is an odyssey of self-improvement. Through this guide, you will witness your nervousness melt away while watching yourself progress from a novice to a polished and confident communicator! The course is designed so that anyone can follow along at their own pace - even if they don’t have much time or are not very tech-savvy. You’ll learn how to eliminate those niggling unwanted thoughts and behaviors that can affect your presentation, helping you to become a confident public speaker and increase your overall communication skills. Build your speaker presence to engage your audiences and achieve impact when you speak. You don’t have to be a natural to give a talk that impresses.

You can build your speaking capability with practice and support from an expert public-speaking coach. Because:

  • If you’re a professional services expert, then your next promotion will depend on your ability to influence others.
  • If you’re keen to progress in your public sector role, then your ability to develop meaningful partnerships with a range of stakeholders is mission critical.
  • If you work in business development, then credibility and visibility are your only currency.
  • If you own a business, then you already know how important it is to be visible in the networks where your clients are to be found. 

Understand how to sharpen and improve your speaking.

Whether you’re presenting to a formal meeting or speaking to 500 people from a stage, you’ll find out how to sharpen your presenting skills and pitch to whomever your audience may be, specifically through improvisation and storytelling. You’ll also learn what to do when things go wrong and will learn how to tackle difficult and controversial questions as well as how to manage challenging audience behavior. Finally, you’ll apply what you have learned in theory and put it into practice, and you will share and discuss your thoughts and fears with other learners.

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

Win your audience

Learning to speak effectively is a skill that isn't always taught to you. Some people are more natural speakers than others. If you are like me and not a natural speaker, this is a great book to learn how to become more confident in speaking. The book also talks about non verbal communication and how you can use it to command the audience while you speak.

Good book but too long and repetitive

Found the book very informative covering most aspects of communication well. It was however too long and repetitive.
