5.0 out of 5 stars Turning a good speech into a brilliant one, 16 May 2011
As a business speaker I know how much preparation and practice is required to deliver a business keynote that energises, amuses and stimulates an audience.

and "Death Came Third" gives both professional and novice speakers hundreds of tips and ideas that make the preparation and delivery that turns a good talk into a brilliant one.

I recommend this book without question.

5.0 out of 5 stars Executive Presence, 22 Oct. 2010
I've spent the past decade mentoring executives and I know that one of the most important aspects to success for an executive is the perception that people have of you, your reputation and your ability to communicate.

The book "Executive Presence" deserves to be considered part of the Bible for helping people control their executive career.

The importance and actions that need to be taken for personal branding, reputation, how to work with the media and great communication are all brilliantly explained. I particularly liked the sections on shortcuts to (creating) influence and how to hold conversations nobody wants to have.

On all my future seminars to executives I will be waving this book as a "Must own". Actually, I will propose that owning two copies is essential. One locked in the top draw of the office desk, to avoid it being stolen, and the other on the bedside table.


How to Get a Job You'll Love 2011-2012 Edition
How to Get a Job You'll Love 2011-2012 Edition
by John Lees
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy in this economic climate, 20 Sept. 2010
Here's a novelty - a book about career planning that has something new to say.

John Lees begins by tackling the agonising debate that one has with oneself over the dissatisfaction with the current job.Then chapter by chapter he walks you through not just "The dream job!" but the practicalities of how much one must earn, what skills and personality one brings to the table for a potential employer.

The primary value in this book is that it's not a comfortable "get rich quick book". The exercises and thought processes that John takes you through are superbly designed to make you think through your options and your marketability to an employer clearly and truthfully.

The chapter (11) on creative job search strategies is particularly useful as it debunks many of the job hunting myths that persist. Other chapters deal with CV creation, using social media to find a job, attending interviews and even changing career.

As a coach and mentor that integrates senior executives into a new job I will be recommending this book as a "Must buy and read"
