From the Back Cover

A practical, readable guide to delivering superior presentations

Speakers bear the responsibility for communicating effectively with their audience: presenting a clear message, supporting it with well–structured explanations and examples, and delivering it with ease, grace, and good visuals. Unfortunately, this rarely happens, as anyone who has endured a substandard presentation knows only too well. The key for developing sound presentation skills need not, however, remain hidden. The Short Road to Great Presentations demystifies the art of public speaking as it shows you how to master the critical principles to make this skill an invaluable asset of your life and career.

Drawing on twenty years of experience in helping engineers, scientists, and business people develop powerful communication skills, PERC Communications founders Peter and Cheryl Reimold present an easy–to–follow program for crafting winning presentations. They focus on two principles: 1) find a message that is clearly meaningful and accessible to your audience, and 2) connect strongly with your audience throughout your presentation. In applying these principles to a series of step–by–step preparations and on–stage actions, the authors help speakers focus on their most vital content, strengthen their structure and delivery, and perhaps, most important eliminate stress and aggravation. Chapter topics in this reader–friendly guide include:

  • Structuring your message for maximum effect
  • Preparing effective visuals
  • Understanding and using body language and eye contact
  • Handling tough questions and surprises
  • Making smart use of slide shows and presentation software
  • Conducting Web presentations and Web meetings

Timeless speaking tips are combined with up–to–date primers on the latest technology throughout. The Short Road to Great Presentations is a one–stop resource for learning and practicing superior professional communication.

This is a COMPLETE guide to effective public speaking 9 Aug. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
From preparation to final delivery, from overcoming stage fright to managing Power Point, this wonderfully engaging and easy-to-read book takes you through every aspect of giving a presentation -- and makes it easy! By the time I had finished it, I felt able to give just about any presentation to any size or type of group. I went out and did it, using the Reimolds' methods, and it worked. I got my message across, and I think I did it persuasively. Anyone who has to give a presentation must take "The Short Road" to success.
