Making Successful Presentations: A Self-teaching Guide
Courses in how to give presentations cost hundreds of dollars--maybe more; yet few provide the comprehensive coverage found in this book, which is designed to show you how to eliminate your fears, gain recognition as a good speaker, and have fun doing it. It takes you through all of these phases, from the initial planning and organization to the development and actual delivery of your presentation. Chapters follow a logical sequence starting with giving a talk and ending with how to handle questions and answers. New to this edition is an entire chapter devoted to the personal computer and how to use it most effectively. Updated information, charts, slides, viewgraphs, room setups and more complete this step-by-step handbook, which you'll refer to again and again for successful speaking.
