Camilla Wilson reviews the book for all our readers who have businesses, make presentations or just practice how to speak right and deliver your message:
The Leader's guide to creating Powerful Speeches and Presentations By Michael Gladkoff
Michael has been writing and delivering inspiring speeches and presentations for over 30 years. He has been invited to speak at some very exciting and exclusive events. He has worked with a broad range of people from all walks of life, teaching them how to capitalise on their strengths to improve and communicate in even a far greater capacity, speaking to business men, and leaders both in education and government.
I thought this book was fantastically written. I was challenged and inspired to implement some of Michael’s strategies to influence, educate and inform every time I find myself in a situation where I need to speak, share ideas and motivate others. I have learned a great deal from Michael's writings.
Michael Gladkoff is obviously very passionate about his subject matter.He is very experienced in this field and definitely a leader in creating memorable speeches and teaching the important skills of communication and delivering engaging speeches and presentations.
It is well understood that there is a real art to writing, delivering and presenting powerful effective speeches, however what is not well known is how to achieve this challenging goal. Michael breaks down for us this often difficult task, taking his readers on a journey that engages the mind and stretches the parameters of some of the more timid speakers. He touches on topics such as stage presence, engaging the audience and developing a rapport with them. How and when to use humour to lighten the mood, teaching the important factors to consider when doing this such as considering who your target audience is, what are the goals your trying to achieve and most importantly the essence of timing.
This book includes everything you need to know regarding developing clear, interesting messages that are relevant to your audience, creating ice breakers that will be instant attention grabbers. How to build a rapport with your listeners so they will feel comfortable with you and trust what you are communicating.
I highly recommend Michael Gladkoff’s book Speech Power to educate and challenge all who are involved in public speaking in any capacity you will not be disappointed.
