I've never been to one of Mr Bradbury's presentations, but I agree that he certainly seems to know his business as far as this book is concerned.
This book makes a really good guide on how to give an effective presentation. The author provides an excellent mix of information about a variety of topics, from designing graphics (charts, graphs and so on), setting up the presentation room, tips on how to deliver your message clearly and how to structure the content of a presentation.
I have been to several seminars on giving good presentations, but they never really seemed to have the information I really needed. This book covers everything from preparing your "script" (in whatever way suits you best), all the way through to the 'Question & Answer' session at the end of a presentation. The chapters are fairly short and concise, so you don't have to read pages and pages of waffle to get at the core information.
I have found this book great to learn from and now days I go back to it for a quick refresher every time I start work on a new presentation.

I am really a specialist and consultant, but I was more and more often getting called upon to make training presentations. After some initial difficulties I began to find that I was actually enjoying the training sessions, and much of my success has been down to this book. I ran across the book quite by chance, and after reading the book, I was so inspired I wanted to read it again to ensure that I didn't miss anything important. Using the guidelines in this book, I’ve been able to design programmes that really involve the participants (the students), and my supervisors really like the design of my programmes. Most importantly, the students/participants loved it so much that I’ve been told that we’re expecting twice as many delegates at the next run of the course. As one of the other instructors put it, if the aim of the programme was to share knowledge in a truly pleasurable fashion, the goal was achieved. Without the information in this book about the various things to think about when you are designing a presentation my programme would not have been the success that it was. I will always be grateful to the author – Andrew Bradbury – for a book that is simple and also inspiring. It has made a big difference to the way I design and deliver my presentations. And I owe it to you. Thank you.

I bought this book, I admit, after some hesitation - not ANOTHER "how to" book on presentations. But Andrew Bradbury is top rate in his approach to the subject. Why? He writes clearly, simply, and with obvious experience about presentations in the workplace, and elsewhere. Andrew stresses the need to understand your audience as the best way to effective presentations and I found the frequent practical examples and short case studies refreshingly relevant. Much of my own work focuses on communication, both inside the company and with our customers, and after going on several seminars I thought I knew most of the tricks of the trade. Bradbury also emphasises the inportance of preparation and rehearsal. I learned some extremely useful tips from Andrew Bradbury, and highly recommend the book.

What I particularly liked about this book was its coverage of the preparation for a presentation, as well as the delivery.
It explained WHAT I needed to do, HOW to do it, and WHY. Well worth the price as far as I'm concerned.

Even though I’ve been in the business of making presentations for a dozen years or more I found this book extremely helpful. I have read 'Successful Presentation Skills' twice already, and I think anyone who makes presentations, from novice speakers to seasoned professionals, can benefit from reading this book, which completely shatters the myth that speaking skills are something you must be born with.
The author, Andrew Bradbury, has an economical and easy going writing style, and coupled with his years of experience as a speaker and trainer I found it was like getting advice from an old friend. I think the breadth of the book, which deals with planning a presentation and designing visual aids, delivering the presentation, handling the Q&A session session afterwards, plus how to prepare yourself, will appeal to the less experienced reader. At the same time the clarity of the writing makes it an excellent reference source for busy managers and those who already have some experience of speaking in public.
I confidently recommend this book for everyone who plans to do any kind of public speaking.
