Overview

After the speech has been written, the practice has been done, all that is left is for you to actually present your speech to the audience. It goes without saying that this can be one of life's biggest challenges!

What You'll Find Inside:

  • I WANT TO PRESENT JUST LIKE STEVE JOBS
  • TOP 9 BAD HABITS OF TECHNICAL PRESENTERS
  • PUBLIC SPEAKING PROBLEM: TOO MANY QUESTIONS (FROM ONE PERSON)!
  • 4 THINGS A PUBLIC SPEAKER NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT WEBCONFERENCING

It turns out that it really should not be. Assuming that you've been able to collect your thoughts, write them down, and have had the time to practice what you want to say, then everything should go ok.

However, I suspect that you'd like to do better than "ok". As long as you are taking the time to create and practice a speech, you sure want the speech to make an impact on your audience. You want to be able to deliver a great speech.

It turns out that you can do this, you just need to know how to go about doing it. That's exactly what this book is going to do. I'm going to show you what you need to know in order to make sure that your next speech is one that your audience will remember long after you are done speaking.

In order to make this happen we're going to have to talk about how Steve Jobs used to give speeches. We're going to have to talk about your body language and what it may be telling your audience.

It turns out that your posture is also important and so we should talk about that. Finally, not every speech is the same. We'll talk about how you can get ready for speeches that you give in unique situations.

In the end, you'll have a very good insight into how you can make your next presentation the best that you've ever given. Ultimately the impact of your speech will be determined by the quality of your presentation.

Meet the Author

Creating and delivering speeches that connect with an audience and cause change to happen is not luck, it's a science. Nobody knows more about the science of public speaking than Dr. Jim Anderson.

"I don't embrace speakers who give me excuses about why their speeches don't work, I embrace solutions."

Over the last 25 years, Dr. Anderson has transformed failing public speakers worldwide. Dr. Anderson will turn these ineffective talkers into powerful communicators.

Dr. Jim Anderson believes that great business skills are no substitute for poor presentation skills. All too often some of a company's best innovations and problem solving skills are locked up within its staff.

They struggle to communicate their ideas using overloaded PowerPoint slides, rambling speeches, and confusing jargon. No matter if it's the entry level programmer or the CEO, poor communication skills mean that their talent & ideas will remain untapped.

What if there was someone who could speak their language? What if there was someone who could help them build on the technical skills that they already have and teach them how to reach out to both technical and non-technical audiences in order to capture their minds and imaginations?

In his books on public speaking, Dr. Jim Anderson shares the knowledge that he has gained while working with individual speakers and audiences for over 25 years. His refreshing sense of humor, deep technical knowledge about how we communicate, and his superb communication skills drive what you'll find in each book.
