In less competent hands, a lesson in the numerous components of good speaking would be overwhelming and impossible to comprehend, let alone implement. But this author, in a breezy and action-oriented class, covers all the major issues--the head work, the physiological pieces, and all the behavioral challenges that speakers have to master. Self-assessment and preparation are key, so you have to know what you're starting with for your audience to see you as genuine. The sections on expressing inner purpose and organizing content are priceless as Wilder walks you through the details with warmth and clarity. An essential resource whether you're overcoming hang-ups or striving for greatness. T.W. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, MaineFrom Library Journal:
Wilder, a professional consultant, shares her program to help even the most reluctant speaker gain confidence in making presentations. She focuses on two basic areas: technique and personality. The technical skills deal with discovering one's "authentic voice"Dthe voice that the speaker can use for extended periods and that offers variety, conviction, and resonance. In terms of making eye contact, she recommends talking to one person in the audience, achieving a reaction, and using this as a catalyst toward further interplay with the group. Wilder demonstrates through story and example why companies, and those they train to speak, need to find the fit between the speaker and the message. The steps she recommends offer very specific, time-tested methods for helping speakers find not only their authentic physical voice but their genuine connection with the message they wish to convey. If you buy only one audio program to help improve communication skills, this title should be considered. Highly recommended for public, academic, and corporate libraries.DKathleen A.
