Publisher's Summary

We all need to speak, write and communicate more effectively. Dave Bartlett shares his decades of experience as a strategic communications consultant in an accessible, easy to apply guide to help anybody - students, business people, public speakers, or politicans - improve their speaking and presenting skills.

The tricks are as old as Aristotle and as new as The Daily Show: know how to appeal to each specific audience through research and thoughtful planning, and then use appropriate content and style. Bartlett's advice is common sense backed by dozens of real-world examples.

  • How to devise a simple strategic goal for every interview, meeting, or speech
  • How to give your audience your message, but in the way they will be the most receptive to
  • How to make messages positive, concrete, and empathetic
  • How to use blogs, podcasts, and YouTube to promote your message
  • How to reach your audience one person at a time

    More of a book for Public Relation

    I brought this audio in expectation on providing practical tips on delivering impactful massages. Sure enough the early part of the book gives alot of practical advices on presentations and planning key messages to audience. The later half deal mainly with handling and taking advantage of public media to drive the point. Good for managing public relations but not what I am looking for in enhancing communication at a personal level.
