Do you hate attending networking events? Do you hide at the back of the room when you have the opportunity to present your business? Are you uncomfortable approaching people you don't know? Does the thought of speaking in public fill you with dread? If so, then you share anxieties in common with almost everyone who has ever worked and had to present themselves in a formal setting. In 1984 a New York Times Survey on Social Anxiety placed death third in the list of people's biggest fears. The top two responses were walking into a room full of strangers and speaking in public. Winning Presentation In A Day will help you overcome your fears and deliver a powerful message, every time.

Understanding how to give a winning presentation is an absolute necessity in today's world. Sooner or later, everyone has to give a presentation, whether at work (a sales call, a briefing to the boss, participating in a seminar) or in personal life (a class report, speaking at a community organization). Yet the idea of getting up in front of others is absolutely terrifying for many people. This handy guide shows readers how to overcome their fear and create a great presentation quickly and easily. This book covers all the most important aspects of developing and delivering a successful presentation, including content; organizing an effective message; delivery techniques, including pacing, humour, statistics, and storytelling; handouts, graphs, charts, and other tools; managing the Q&A; making a good impression; and conquering stage fright. Also included are equipment tips and techniques for videoconferences and teleconferences.
