Speak: So Your Audience Will Listen is an audiobook for anyone who has to deliver a message, tell a story - or speak to another human being.
Most of us are quite relaxed and confident when we're with our friends and family. We can tell a story or even tell a joke. But put us on a platform and we can feel very different. When we speak to an audience, we often put on a public mask; and use a different voice. Why can't we seem to be ourselves when we give a talk?
In this audiobook, we will look at all aspects of spoken communication, from structure right through to delivery. We will learn how to have a conversation with our audience - to be ourselves - so that we connect with them every time we speak. In seven simple steps, you can learn to be a confident and successful public speaker. There are specific exercises at the end of every section for you to practice.
Whether you're a CEO presenting to shareholders, a manager motivating your team, an entrepreneur selling a business, a creative pitching an idea, a charity worker asking for donations, or a parent speaking at your daughter's wedding, this audiobook will help you become a confident and successful public speaker, so that when you speak, your audience will listen.
And, hopefully, you'll enjoy the experience too.

Great book! I used it to calm myself down before a presentation

Informative and Insightful
Will listen again!
Author/narrators are not usually my favourite choice, but Robin Kermode does a lovely job. He has a pleasant voice and does not digress into self congratulatory ramblings.
The explanation for our physiological reactions to stage fright is brilliant. The author then goes on to provide very concrete ways to deal with this phenomenon.
In brushing up on technique to teach public speaking to my 4-H club I picked up this audio book. It was well worth my time and money. Very practical information with examples that are real and make sense.
