  • How to Own the Room

    Viv Groskop

    Product Code: BSXDO
    Hardback
    'Inspirational.' Mary Portas 'Indispensable ... written with style and wit.' Mishal Husain Most books about public speaking don't tell you what to do when you open your mouth and nothing comes out. And they don't tell you how to get over the anxiety about performance that most people naturally have. They don't tell you what to do in the moments when you are made, as a woman, to feel small. They don't tell you how to own the room. This book does. From the way Michelle Obama projects `happy high status', and the power of J.K.Rowling's understated speaking style, to Virginia Woolf's leisurely pacing and Oprah Winfrey's mastery of inner conviction, what is it that our heroines do to make us sit up and listen - really listen - to their every word? And how can you achieve that impact in your own life? Here's how.

  • Grace Under Pressure

    Lisa Wentz

    Product Code: BXYJF
    Paperback
    According to most studies, public speaking is the number one fear among professionals. Most suffer from stage fright, lack of basic vocal training and/or lack of delivery technique. Such individuals seek tips and tricks in books, articles, and blogs, and assume that there's a fast and easy way for appearing eloquent and polished in front of an audience. However, these sources often fail to address the underlying issue of stage fright, and the same habitual responses to nervousness continue to plague the speaker. Grace Under Pressure solves this issue by unveiling three areas of training that great speakers use to develop their skills. In the first section, author Lisa Wentz shares techniques that she has developed to help anyone overcome inner obstacles so they can focus on developing their outward presence. The second section outlines how to best develop the physical aspects of speech, including posture, breathing, resonance, and articulation. And the third section centres on delivery: how to use pauses, word stress, and storytelling, among other techniques, to improve your performance from novice to master. This final section offers acting techniques and directorial advice that can be applied to speeches, pitches, presentations and meeting strategies.

  • Presentation Skills for Quivering Wrecks

    Bob Etherington

    Product Code: BPZIY
    Paperback
    Spiders, death, dentists, snakes and flying are in the list of the top ten fears of businesspeople (Book of List). But the top position is held by "public speaking". So great is this fear that most businesspeople have a single objective: to get off the platform as soon as possible. This book, based on a hugely successful course given to thousands of businesspeople, shows how anyone can speak with confidence to an audience of any size. Laced with humour and wit, the author emphasizes that you don't have to be a brilliant orator to be an effective speaker in business. Simply being good is plenty, because 95% of all business presenters are so awful! 10 reasons you must buy this book and avoid "death by slide-show"! 1. Most business audiences have a single objective: to get out of the room. 2. Most business presenters have a single objective: to sit down in the audience again. 3. Most corporate audiences can't remember, 24 hours later, what was presented, the title of the presentation or the presenter's name. 4. Like it or not, 55% of the persuasive power of a presentation is transmitted by the speaker's body language, 38% by the speaker's voice tone and only 7% by the content. 5. 75% of speaker-nerves disappear with correct rehearsal. 6. You can discover how to generate applause when you want it. 7. There is a simple model you can use which will create a terrific presentation for you every time. 8. Bullet points are not what slides are for, and using all capital letters makes long stretches of text very hard to read. 9. Reading words off slides (as most presenters do) puts your audience to sleep in about 30 seconds. 10. Good presenters are very rare. When you become a good presenter you can often negotiate better employment terms, a higher salary, and even get yourself promoted - I did... so can you! [Facsimile reprint edition]
