This book is designed as a ready reference for writing and delivering a platform speech, presiding over meetings, introducing speakers, presenting awards, accepting awards, giving committee reports, and making extemporaneous speeches. The book is unique, in that it approaches the topic unlike any book on public speaking currently on the market. It is based entirely upon the Authors' experiences in conducting "Communications Training" across the United States and abroad and the lead author's past association with Toastmaster's International.
