Deb Gottesman and Buzz Mauro are the directors of Center Stage Communications, a Washington D.C.-based consulting firm specializing in the application of acting techniques to the business world. They are the authors of The Interview Rehearsal Book.From Booklist:
Fear of public speaking is so well documented that comedian Jerry Seinfeld once remarked that most would rather be in the casket than delivering the eulogy. The standard remedy is to rehearse, which, to most nonprofessional public speakers, is akin to jumping from the proverbial frying pan. Yet there is a new and considerably improved solution, as eloquently explained by Gottesman and Mauro: think like the theatrical world, both playwright and actor. Deliberately and thoughtfully, they lead readers through every stage of speechifying: destroying the "you gotta have talent" myth, defining objectives, choosing actions, exploring dramatic possibilities, connecting to the audience, practicing warm-ups, and final rehearsals. Exercises are supported by quotes from some of the best in the dramatic biz, from Alfred Hitchcock to Meryl Streep. Barbara Jacobs
