Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Informative and Insightful"
    If you could sum up Speak: So Your Audience Will Listen in three words, what would they be?

    Will listen again!


    What does Robin Kermode bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Worth listening to!"

    The information was excellent, organized and delivered well. He covered not only what a person would expect on a book on speaking, bit very helpful behind the scenes info. I want to purchase the hard copy so I can physically reread certain sections.

    "Great listen... Gives insight into how to manage y"
    Would you listen to Speak: So Your Audience Will Listen again? Why?

    Certainly would listen again and probably a few times more. The lessons given need to become second nature, they work and cover things you would not expect that really do help.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Speak: So Your Audience Will Listen?

    Learning about posture, hand control and stance to help speak in a better toe with more clarity


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Section on how to open a presentation


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Speaking from your core

    "Logical, helpful, superb"
    What did you like most about Speak: So Your Audience Will Listen?

    At last a self-help book on public speaking that does just what it says on the cover. A methodical approach yet entertaining and certainly very useful. I've listened on audiobooks twice already, and each time another point sinks in. This really works. Take it slowly and then put into good use.

    "Excellent content and brilliant presentation"

    I thought this talking book does everything it says on the cover and is so easy to listen to. I have learned a lot from this and would recommend to all.
    This is the first time I have ever recommended anything but thought it deserves it.

    "Great for speakers or even online presentations"

    A good listen!
    I don't do much public speaking, but do send daily emails to a large list with info, tips and obviously marketing. This book has managed to give some great tips to cover both sides.
    Helpful from - hoe to prepare for a talk, removing dry mouth, shortness of breath etc, to how to stand/ move for confidence and clarity.

    Equally good ways to open talks:speeches , ending, how to structure information and deal with "troublesome questions" etc

    A good listen
