A practical and empowering guide to public speaking and becoming a more effective, persuasive communicator in all areas of life.Even for the most accomplished, public speaking can be a nerve-racking ordeal. Yet whether it’s speaking to a large audience, within a group, or in a one-on-one conversation, the way in which we communicate ideas, as much as the ideas themselves, can determine success or failure.     With a client roster that includes NestlÉ, Cisco Systems, Hewlett Packard, ING, and PG&E, Peter Meyers—a former actor and theater director and the founder of Stand & Deliver consulting group—has honed a comprehensive approach for tackling the underlying obstacles that almost everyone experiences when faced with speaking in public. At the core of As We Speak lies a simple, three-step approach that addresses content, delivery, and state of mind and takes readers through every fundamental aspect of public speaking, including structuring a presentation, making eye contact, eliminating anxiety, and how best to utilize body, voice, eyes, and hands. The book also offers advanced exercises to help readers gain true and lasting confidence as well as realize their own unique values and goals at work and at home. These principles and techniques can also be used to improve communication and relationships among family, friends, coworkers and peers, especially when it comes to the most important and difficult conversations.     Forthright, supportive, and laden with extras—including tips on communicating by email or other electronic means—As We Speak helps readers find their voice, and make it heard.
