Leaders are constantly being called upon to speak in public. The speech could be to inform, to motivate, to honor someone, to address concerns, and a myriad of other reasons. As important and ubiquitous as giving speeches is in the daily life of leaders and managers, there is little if any formal training on how to become an influential, impactful and legendary speaker. This book is the ideal starting point to learn discrete skills for creating speeches, getting stage fright under control, and learning to use your body, voice and words for the greatest effect.
