If you?re petrified of public speaking, the last thing you want is a lecture. And there lies the brilliance of this unique book?s genuinely innovative approach to the issue. Dee Clayton makes the process of overcoming those negative voices in your head to become an effective public speaker lighthearted and fun. A godsend for anyone who?s ever suffered that dread, her refreshingly simple yet amazingly effective multi-award-winning approach has already helped thousands overcome their fears and become effective and confident public speakers. Significantly, the author is keenly aware that for most of us, effective public speaking isn?t necessarily an end in itself, but a means to other ends. Clayton has helped company directors to persuade more successfully, doctors to win more funding, mediators to influence international decisions, and all kinds of business people to fulfill their potential. What?s more, this is a genuinely practical guide. Unlike most self-help books on the topic, this one doesn?t just tell you what to do. In her chatty, good-humored style, she explains exactly how to be an effective public speaker, sharing her own experiences and coaxing the reader through a programme that doesn?t just work, it even makes public speaking enjoyable.
