I am an NLP trainer, I also am a past member of Toastmasters (CTM). This being said, I have found that Ed Percival's two short audios on speaking contain what are now some of the most powerful "tools" in my arsenal for connecting with my audience, getting my point across and creating results (sales) for my business. You are probably already aware of the fact that you can listen to many full-length books on speaking and maybe get only one or two tips you can use. Mr.Percival gives you the pure, distilled knowledge. You will finish listening to these short, power-packed audios with a toolkit can use NOW.
I highly recommend these audios.
The information is valuable. I recommend the book to anyone searching for answers about life.
Someone who does not sound arrogant and bossy. It was a constant exercise to put my annoyance at her demeanor aside.
I still recommend this book, just be warned of the grating performance. Some of my colleagues feel the same, others are fine with it.
I recommend this audio for anyone who is fascinated by how the mind/body connection works from a scientifically mystic viewpoint. The author is highly informative and also humorous. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will listen to it again. I will be adding some of this material to my presentations about NLP.
Written by the subscriber's wife: This amazing book speaks to my soul. Mark Gafni is a true spiritual genius in our own time. I would be surprised if your life is not transformed by the depth and understanding that Mark gives us in plain language, and in the language of delightful story. This will truly touch your heart and soul.
When I purchased abridged audio books in the past, they simply cut down on the amount of content for each idea. This book cuts down on the content itself. That is unacceptable. I will from now on make sure and find out just what "abridged" means from now on. I purchase audio books at a higher price than hard copy books because the content is there, not so I have to purchase the hard copy book later. That is a distasteful attempt at selling the book in a place that should not sink to such depths. Audible, in my opinion has had only the finest of quality in their products. This format has me on guard now. I certainly hope that this type of "abridgment" will be discouraged in the future in order to maintain the sense of quality and excellence that Audible has built over the years.
That being said, the content that Ms.Jeffers does provides is helpful, such as replacing "I hope" with "I wonder if..." and making the idea of death your friend.
From listening to this audio I found that my "stage fright" had been neutralized.
Do you want results? Turn off the cell phone, move away from the computer screen and focus completely on this powerful audio. The author, Ed Percival, shares profoundly effective NLP techniques to "vaporize" fears of presenting. It is a fun and helpful listen. Highly recommended for speakers and anyone who has to make presentations!
My wife is an NLP trainer, she says "This is an excellent book for those just delving into the subject of NLP and experienced practitioners. Richard Bandler's brilliant NLP techniques can change your life. The audio version is missing the list of submodalities, which you can easily find on the internet by searching for "submodalities." Do you want quick change? Listen to this book by the co-founder himself."
I like a powerful message, none of the fluff, and I want it quickly. What other writers take hours to do (if at all), the author gives you in a half hour. Do you want to make an impact for your meeting tomorrow? Have a listen. These tips are very effective.
