What do we expect from a speaker, as we sit in an audience waiting for them to start?
We want them to know their subject, to be well prepared and we want them to be excited about communicating that to us.
But above all we want them to deliver it in a way that makes us feel we have some part in the proceedings. We dont want to be talked at. We dont want to be sold to.
We want them to have a conversation with us and when we see a speaker who does that, we listen. And we not only listen, we remember what theyve said.
So how can we learn to connect with our audience, every time?
How should we best structure a talk and prepare our notes? How should we deal with nerves?
In this book, we will look at all aspects of spoken communication, from structure right through to delivery.
The tone of voice, the choice of words we use and the structure of our message all make a huge difference to how a message is perceived.
Our message must be crystal clear so our audience is left in no doubt as to what were saying.
And we should deliver it all with energy, clarity and humanity.
In this book we will learn how we can tread that fine line between confidence and arrogance; how we can be physically dynamic, yet still open and relaxed. Ill suggest specific exercises to control the mind and body.
