My motivation for writing Better Business Speech came from several of my speech clients. They asked all the important questions: “Why do I feel held back at meetings?” “Why do my presentations fall flat?” “Why do I never know what to say at a job interview?” My answers resonated with them and gave them the tools they needed to communicate successfully. I put all of those answers into a book so that every aspiring business professional could know the key strategies to use in every kind of business speech: I’ve included the 80/50 rule for persuasive eye contact, how to shine in business meetings, and the best way to tame the 3-headed public speaking monster. Speaking is a skill just like any other. My goal is to share my insights and empower everyone to speak with authority and authenticity.
