Read an Excerpt

Too many presentations are disappointing. The audience members’ expectations aren’t met, nor do they take anything away.

If you adopt my techniques in putting together your presentation, you will present it comfortably and your audience will comprehend it entirely. This is a secret to making your presentation amazing.

Most presenters believe that getting people to learn is simply a matter of passing along information that they can parrot back. The Rule the Room concept is dramatically different.

I believe that when you have taught something successfully, you will achieve a change in behavior. If you have made your points to the people in your audience and convinced them of your message, they will take action as a result. Once you adopt this mind-changing perspective, you will reexamine every aspect of your presentation, from creating it to marketing it.

In the first chapter, I helped you identify the takeaways you will offer the audience, explain why they will be of value, and deliver the hooks that suggest how you will help your listeners master them. To create the actual presentation, your challenge is to use your expertise to do what you have promised in an exciting and comprehensive way.
