Be the Best Bad Presenter Ever
Break the Rules, Make Mistakes, and Win Them OverBook - 2014
" One reason public speaking is such a nightmare for so many people is that they think they have to be "perfect." They drive themselves crazy trying to conform to all sorts of handed-down rules that tie them up in knots and put their audiences to sleep. Karen Hough says you can throw out those rules, relax, be yourself, make "mistakes," and connect with your audience much more effectively than the guy with the impeccable PowerPoint slides. Hough has used her unique presentation approach to take the anxiety out of one of the greatest fears in business. Her book debunks over a dozen myths about presentations to make them more fun and natural for everybody. It's authenticity and passion that win people over, not polish. But you can't be authentic if you're following someone else's rules. Hough shows how you can embrace your own style and communicate your message without worrying constantly about antiquated dos and don'ts. Follow Karen's "bad advice" and you'll be surprised to learn you're actually a naturally skilled presenter"-- Provided by publisher.
