Own the Room

Research has shown that the most effective presentations are those that combine emotion and intellectual stimulation. This book outlines key principles of persuasive presentations and illustrates how these principles can be put into practice. Chapters are likened to a movie or stage production, focusing on the roles of varying participants in the presentation, the opening, closing, and narrative used. Others talk about how to handle stage fright, moving around during the presentation, and using PowerPoint. This book will be valuable to everyone who wants to improve their communication skills, whether speaking in front of a large audience or simply a small group.
