HotTips for Speakers: 25 Surefire Ways To Engage and Captivate Any Group or Audience.
Abernathy, Rob; Reardon, Mark
From managing stage fright to keeping the audience hanging on their every word, experienced public speakers have the techniques to make every presentation memorable. This book contains a collection of 25 strategies for public speaking that have already worked for many people. Each "HotTip" (strategy) has been tested and used with audiences of all ages and all levels of experience--they add value to the orchestration and delivery of your information. The book advises, once key questions and priorities are identified to look for the tips that meet the most immediate needs and to practice them first. Not a textbook, but rather a "brain-friendly" workbook, the book takes the reader beyond knowledge to application. Throughout the book, there is plenty of room to record practice and insights. For each tip, the reader will find an affirmation that builds confidence and cements the essence in memory; a guided practice activity helps the reader master the strategy, while a rating system and reflection questions guide the reader to full implementation. A list of related resources is included. (NKA)
