Even better, props become additional sources of revenue and can provide you with amazing marketing opportunities. Discover why Tim's unique use of toys and props make him one of the most popular and original presenters on the platform today.

      "Low quality phone interview, only for professional speakers"

      This 'audiobook' is a meandering conversation that was conducted on the phone for a podcast. The speaking quality is poor. Only a small portion of the 'book' covers how to use props but only in the context of professional speakers. I was hoping for guidance that I could use in Toastmasters speeches and found very little useful information. A significant part of the conversation revolves around selling props to corporate clients so the audience members can keep them as a reminder of the speech. Usually, interviews of this quality are available for free from the websites of professional speakers (e.g. Judy Carter).
