Someone said that the brain starts working before you are even born, and stops the moment you get up to give a speech. That’s why most people avoid it at all costs. At the same time, it is the ability to speak that sets candidates apart in the interview process. This ability to communicate in public is also the common denominator among business people who rise to the top of their profession. Speaking well is an ability that will serve you in every area of life. Looking to overcome your fear and learn a life-changing skill? This book can help. You will be led through the steps of choosing a topic, organizing your ideas, finding support material, starting and ending the speech with a bang, and developing a delivery style that sparkles. J. Mark Fox has taught nearly 3000 students how to overcome their fear of giving a speech and put the art of public speaking to work for them. He can do the same for you!
