9780195300758: Lend Me Your Ears: All You Need to Know about Making Speeches and Presentations

The room darkens and grows hushed, all eyes to the front as the screen comes to life. Eagerly the audience starts to thumb the pages of their handouts, following along breathlessly as the slides go by one after the other...
We're not sure what the expected outcome was when PowerPoint first emerged as the industry standard model of presentation, but reality has shown few positive results. Research reveals that there is much about this format that audiences positively dislike, and that the old school rules of classical rhetoric are still as effective as they ever were for maximizing impact. Renowned communications researcher, consultant, and speech coach Max Atkinson presents these findings and more in a groundbreaking and refreshing approach that highlights the secrets of successful communication, and shows how anyone can put these into practice and become an effective speaker or presenter.
Topics Include:
· How to win and hold the attention of audiences;
· Using visual aids and PowerPoint more effectively;
· Getting your message across and winning applause;
· Inspiring audiences;
· How to prepare quickly;
· Fact and fiction about body language and non-verbal communication.

Review:


"No one surpasses Atkinson in the rigor and clarity with which he spells out how to move audiences to applause, get quoted in the media and become known as the most brilliant presence on any podium."--Clark Judge, speechwriter for Ronald Reagan


"Neither politicians nor business leaders can lead today without the ability to communicate effectively with audiences of all sizes or compositions. They have two choices: (1) be born with the ability, or (2) read Max Atkinson's books and learn."--Michael Sheehan, speech coach to Bill Clinton
