Two of the world's most sought-after consultants present a revolutionary, empowering guide to public speaking and becoming a more effective, persuasive communicator in all areas of life.

Even for the most accomplished, public speaking can be a nerve-racking ordeal. Whether it's speaking to a large audience, within a group, or in a one-on-one conversation, the way in which we communicate ideas, as much as the ideas themselves, can determine success or failure.

With a client roster that includes NestlÉ, Cisco Systems, Hewlett Packard, ING, and PG&E, Peter Meyers--a former actor and theater director and the founder of Stand & Deliver consulting group--and former radio host Shann Nix have honed a comprehensive approach for tackling the underlying obstacles that almost everyone experiences when faced with speaking in public. At the core of As We Speak lies a simple, three-step approach that addresses content, delivery, and state of mind. Meyers and Nix take readers through every aspect of high-performance communication, from using your hands, eyes, voice, and body effectively to creating a clear structure of ideas that gives listeners a memorable experience. They also reveal how their principles can be used to improve communication with family and friends, even when it comes to important or awkward conversations. Forthright, supportive, and laden with extras--from tips to communicating by email to downloadable audio exercises-- As We Speak will help readers find their voice, and make it heard.
