I purchased this book for a Masters course in Organizational Leadership. Working in the training field I didn't believe it would add much value, but I was wrong. This book is more than great tips, it also provides a number of simple tools that can be used as is or customized for specific presentations. Whether you need help getting started, developing delivery methods, overcoming anxiety, or handling difficult Q&A, this book can help. I've sold back many textbooks when finished with the course, but not this one!
