Blow Your Own Horn: Successful Powerful Presenting
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Communicating is arguably the most important skill in life. Making a presentation is one of the most powerful ways of engaging with other human beings, yet often challenging and frequently nerve wracking. Too many over rely on Powerpoint to get their message across, and utterly fail to engage or connect with their audience.
This book shows you how to fulfil the 3 duties of any presenter - to be interesting and engaging, to get your message across and to be authentic. It also gives you a rock solid structure for almost any talk - and a way of cutting your preparation time by up to 90%. In a recent survey from the USA, 720 out of 1200 Chief Executives reckoned their ability to present well was the Number 1 reason for their success. Michael Trigg has spent over 20 years researching some of the best, most powerful, most useful and pragmatic presentation techniques on the planet. This book is a distillation of what he found.
These techniques work time and again and in almost any context. Whether you are an experienced presenter giving a keynote speech to your company, or talking to 600 tribesmen in Africa or pitching to a client - these ideas work. They could be the difference that makes the difference. Your message needs to stand out from the crowd - so learn how to blow your own horn with charisma, eloquence and power.
I found this book when I was preparing for a very specific presentation: the promotion.
I found it, quite simply, the best book on the topic today.
Let me tell you why.
This book is:
Filled with quick win hints and tips, case studies and examples.
The section on magic notes using colours and images is so effective that you can remember whole sections of your presentation by looking at a simple drawing. I think it's unlikely I will be using another system again.
This book helped me plan and deliver my presentation very effectively. I got the promotion!
A huge thank you to the author. You have created a real game changer.
