Publisher's Summary

Does the idea of talking in public speaking fill you with dread? What are you going to say? How are you going to say it? Will you stumble over your words? Will the audience understand and what if they don't like you?

Whether it's standing up in a meeting at work, making a speech at a wedding or just talking normally while others listen - public speaking is the most common fear and the majority of people will try to get out of it or "get it over with" as quickly as possible.

Even if you don't mind public speaking, there will be times when you are in unfamiliar circumstances, have to present an unpopular message or get put on the spot and you need a little bit of help.

Over 20 years, Ed Percival, leading Trainer and Coach, has helped some of the most successful people in business, entertainment and sport to become great presenters, regardless of their levels of nerves. And now you can learn his secrets to delivering with precision and confidence and mostly importantly enjoy making an impact.

Through simple, easy to follow and proven instructions, you will learn the key principles to public speaking and presenting in any context. In this two part audio book, Ed will show you how to:

  • Stand in front of any size audience and connect with them almost instantly
  • Develop your own voice so it becomes an 'instrument' not an 'accident'
  • Make your message clearer and more powerful
  • Use your time effectively to structure your presentation, so that your audience understands and remembers your message
  • Be confident as yourself and communicate authentically with any size audience, from small meetings to large conferences
  • Make your messages clear and memorable, so you don't need to rely on PowerPoint or a script
  • Be flexible and deal with questioning, losing your train of thought, difficult situations, or being put on the spot
  • Actually enjoy being in the 'spot light'

    Ed Percival is an NLP master trainer and learned...

      "Concentrated, POWERFUL, WOW!"

      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 results have been great"

      I've now listened to all three in the series and as well as helping me overcome my fear of public speaking. I have some really interesting strategies for helping me engage more with my team when I present - the results have been fantastic
