BOTH these Books are MUST READS for. . .

I am a Speaker, a Coach, and an Author.
I’m also a Reader!

By reading great books on Public Speaking and Presentation Skills, I’ve immensely increased my knowledge of my craft, and improved my presentations!

I’ve placed brief reviews of two recent tomes in this Post. They both helped me. Reading them will benefit you, also!


Fear of Public Speaking? What’s it Costing. . .

I have coached a number of people who, because of the Fear of Public Speaking, have passed on Speaking Opportunities. They watched others, who took those opportunities, receive recognition, promotions, and salary increases. Many felt they did better work and were more qualified, but the “Speaker” received the leadership opportunity.

If you’ve been in this situation, you’re not alone. Many people have a Fear of Public Speaking.


The Fear of Public Speaking – KSDK Interviews. . .

It could be a wedding toast or a class assignment in high school or college. Most of us get anxious when we’re asked to talk to an audience.

It’s the number one phobia, called glossophobia. When it comes to talking the talk, many people would rather get a root canal or an IRS audit than make a speech.


The Magic Pill that Makes You a Great Presenter!

There’s no easy way to get rid of the Fear of Public Speaking and become a Great Presenter.

Don’t despair! Public Speaking/Delivering Presentations is a skill that can be learned.

Think about it: You learned how to ride a bike, drive a car, use a computer. and many other things. You weren’t born knowing how to do any of those activities, correct?

Public Speaking is learned the same way those skills were learned. You study them, then apply what you learned.
