Speaking before a group is one of the most daunting experiences that we ever have to face. And yet we have all the skills necessary to present, brilliantly, through our experience of conversations. The Natural Presenter tells you how to harness this conversational energy and fluidity when making a presentation. It covers:

  • Structuring material so that it is easy and natural to present
  • Visual aids, graphs, pictures, visual reasoning, and the use and misuse of PowerPoint
  • The power of analogies, examples, demonstrations and anecdotes to bridge the gap between speaker and audience, and to make your talk interesting and memorable
  • Application of principles to all presentation scenarios

This is the first complete presentation guide. It debunks many of the myths of public speaking, and lays out a clear and practical path for anyone who needs to present.
