101 Ways to Captivate a Business Audience

Book Description

Captivating a business audience doesn't come naturally to most business speakers. But they can learn to do it and have fun -- with minimum stress and plenty of charisma. This handy little book shares the author's highly successful "sizzle-steak" method. It features 101 audience-tested anecdotes, experiences, quotes, and insights designed to help every speaker "turn up the creative heat." Readers will learn how they can: • customize their message to the audience • generate ideas fast • organize material for maximum retention • control nervousness • add sizzle every six minutes • look, feel, and act like a million dollars • energize their voices • create exciting visual aids • "bulletproof" their presentations
