Speak for Yourself

Book Description


If you think that talking is easy, think again!


Why? Because, whether at a meeting at work or a dinner party at home, what you’re saying and how you’re saying it matters. It can open doors - or close them; it can make you friends - or lose them; it can get you noticed - or forgotten.


Wish you were a raconteur? Or a brilliant public speaker? Maybe you just want to be more confident, clever, persuasive or provocative in everyday conversations. Whatever you want, with some simple, fun and effective techniques Speak for Yourself will help you master:


Your voice – make an impact and be heard by changing how you breathe and speak

Your words – grab and hold attention with the power of storytelling and active listening

Your style – get the most from conversations, presentations and meetings


Speak for Yourself is packed with winning ways to help you walk, talk and interact with others while exuding confidence and calm. It’ll get you noticed and leave them wanting more.
