Book – Relational Presentation

I have been reading this book:  Relational Presentation by Robert A. Lane and Chantal Bosse

What a bad move that was!

Because this is a book to do, not a book to read.

If you want to move beyond bullet points, then this is where you can start.  This is the “how-to”.  The tone of the book is constantly  encouraging and it will give you the practical details at the level you need, whether you are a beginner, or already a user.  I enjoyed the detail on creating effects –  the information is there for you to use powerpoint to create stunning rich media effects.

The Six-Figure Speaker: Formula for a Six-Figure Income As a Professional Speaker

 

by Cathleen Fillmore

This book is not for beginners. It’s not filled with tips on how to be an effective speaker. It has nothing to do with how to project your voice, how to organize a speech, or how to overcome shyness. This book is for the public speaker ready to take it to the next level, the speaker who is ready to go out and speak professionally to organizations and make large sums of money, starting at $2,500. If you’re that person, read this book. If you’re shy, read another book first. If you’re still learning to be a public speaker, but you’re passionate about it, read this book so you can take your career to the next level. This is the book every public speaker should use as a roadmap toward career success.

How to Make a Fortune in Public Speaking

 

At the price this is a real bargain–despite its age. This book tells you in great detail how to make money by public speaking, and makes some great points. The strategy on how to get started is only one of many possible approaches.  There is also a section on how to get engagements even if you are an unknown. Dr Anthony is very honest about the work that may be involved, but the value of the books is the fine detail.

 

 

 

 If you are sure that you want to do public speaking for a living, this book would be a good place to start.  Because it is now out of date, you will need to update the information, for example add in some internet marketing techniques to the suggested “make a booklet, a newsletter and related literature.”    

 

In The SpotLight, Overcome Your Fear of Public Speaking and Performing

In the spotlight

Author:  Janet E. Esposito

From the Reviews:

Why is she so effective? First, she’s been there. You can totally relate to her as she describes her experiences. Second, Janet resolved to overcome her problem and tried many different approaches to do so. Her book focuses on the most effective methods that attack the problem from several directions. It is practical and helpful, with shortcuts to use, and modeling yourself on people who have overcome a similar problem not only makes the process faster, but also gives the comfort of knowing that you’re not alone– “If you suffer from performance anxiety, do yourself a big favor and read this book.”
