Do presentations make you anxious? Do you wish you could deliver your message in a truly confident and more persuasive way?
For most people, presentations are one of the most difficult parts of their job. Whether it’s speaking to a roomful of people, explaining your budget to the CEO, pitching to a potential client, leading a departmental meeting, or presenting remotely via the Internet, otherwise effective and valuable employees struggle to drive home their message and persuade their audience. Even experienced presenters can fall flat on their faces when the stakes are high.
Rambling, nervousness, excessive detail, over reliance on slides, lack of focus on the audience: These are all common problems —and all easily corrected with Well Said!, the complete how-to-do-it guide to delivering targeted, memorable presentations that get results in every business situation.
The key to truly great presentations is to understand your audience’s point of view and to tell them what’s in it for them.

Packed with tried-and-true tips, tricks, and techniques based on the author’s extensive experience, industry research, and client surveys, the book shows you how to:
