Most college books are lots of theory and returned at the end of the class. This is definitely NOT one of those books! This is the same book I use when I coach busy executives how to deliver powerful presentations. You'll find numerous clear examples and proven strategies to make this sometimes dreaded chore easy and even enjoyable!
Whether you are talking to a large group, at a small meeting or with just one person, the proven, time-saving, step-by-step formulas in this book will teach you the most effective methods to prepare, practice and deliver any presentation.
