Your voice matters, especially as a leader.
Every day, you have an opportunity to use your voice to have a positive impact--at work or in your community. You can inspire and persuade your audience--or you can distract and put them to sleep.
Nervous, rambling robotic--these presentation styles can ruin a talk on even the most critical topics. And with each weak performance, career prospects dim.
To get ahead and make an impact, you need to deliver well-crafted messages with confidence and authenticity. You must sound as capable as you are.
Public speaking is a skill, not a talent. With the right guidance, anyone can be a powerful speaker.

This book has been a game-changer for me. When you think of public speaking as anytime you talk to one or more people with a purpose, you realize that we speak publicly more than we think. “Speak with Impact” not only gives insightful tips on how to speak more effectively, but also helps to reduce the fear of public speaking. It is written in a manner that is interesting and easy to read. I am a dentist, and have found this material useful in my daily interactions with patients, as well as with addressing larger groups. I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t benefit from reading this. I have both the hardcover and the audiobook version, which is actually read by the author. This is a resource that I will come back to repeatedly.
