Speeches

A witty and deeply rewarding book that will embolden even the most tremulous of speakers

"Where I come from, where modesty is a sin, Flintoff 's book would be called 'The Indispensable Guide to Giving an Unforgettable Speech'."Jay Heinrichs, New York Times bestselling author

Most of us dread public speaking. But at some point we find ourselves forced to make a speech. And we worry: Will my jokes fall flat? What if I freeze? Is it okay to read notes? What if people walk out?

This book won't magically transform you into a fast-talking corporate hotshot. But it will show you how to think about public speaking in a new way, and with a spot of luck, you will achieve adequacy. Or better!

Drawing on ancient principles of rhetoric and his own entertaining successes and failures on the speech-giving circuit, John-Paul Flintoff provides simple but effective techniques to help you to speak with confidence to any crowd, whether it's a work presentation or a best friend's wedding.

Humble but motivating, this is a guide to finding your voice, even if it's a bit croaky at first, and a reassuring affirmation that we all have something to say.
