Career management expert Martin Yate and finance whiz Peter Sander have assembled a dandy handbook on making effective presentations. After pointing out the value of developing this key career skill, they focus on how to prepare a good speech. They go from identifying your audience, to determining how best to deliver information, to being ready to be hot stuff at the podium. Similar books have explained these steps before, but the authors couldn¿t offer their meatier advice without beginning with the basics. Familiar instructions include researching your audience and topic, being yourself and using effective communications techniques. The more distinctive information covers turning your talk into a kind of conversation with the audience, employing audio visual aids effectively and adopting proper stage dress and manners. Though the material is familiar, we from getAbstract appreciate this well-organized, clear presentation and suggests that beginning speakers might want to walk this way before stepping up to the microphone.Was this review helpful?
