    Universal Counsel; Ageless Advice

    I am a communication professional with a Fortune 500 company. You should not only make this book a necessary tool in your communication toolbox, you should make it your primary one. With it I have helped transform many of our senior executives from slide-dependent quasi-entertainers into dynamic speakers with messages that stand on their own merit. For anyone trying to improve face-to-face communications within his or her organization, start here.
