Clare Willis, Senior Consultant, Speak First Training, London.


Speaking is one of the most powerful ways of influencing others at work and in life. And yet for many of us, speaking in front of large or small groups of people is one of our greatest fears. Speaking Persuasively shows you how to convert anxiety into effective communication.


Using real examples, Speaking Persuasively shows you how to hone your speaking skills in business and politics, in the classroom and in the community. It explains how to order your material, attract the audience's attention (and keep it), control your voice and adapt your techniques for different situations. It also includes practical advice on making a successful business pitch, communicating across cultures and handling the media.

Speaking Persuasively is for anyone who wants to become a more persuasive and more impressive public speaker.

Valuable information that will make the first-timer more comfortable and the gifted public speaker more persuasive.
Shari Armistead, Senior Media Advisor to Queensland Minister for Education

Strips away the mystery of the mass media performance. A useful guide for those on both sides of the microphone.
Ellen Fanning, television and radio presenter
