Preface

I love making presentations. Equally, I recognise public speaking is a challenge that can make many people very nervous. In fact, it can be downright terrifying.

This has led me to spend hours discussing what it takes to present successfully with numerous colleagues and friends. We’ve hung our heads after the horrors, when it all went terribly wrong: those were the times to make an honest assessment of what we could have improved. We’ve also celebrated together when it’s gone well, yet still hunted for those polishings and sharpenings that could make it even better next time.

Over the last twenty years, I’ve coached hundreds of people and get a huge kick out of seeing them improve their presentations skills. I love seeing the kick they get out of it for themselves too.

In this book, I’m very happy to share the essentials of how to prepare, deliver and follow up on a great presentation. And finally you’ll find yourself perfectly capable of giving a complete presentation in just three minutes.
