Public speaking is said to be the number one fear of adults in
the Western world; it ranks worse than death for most of us. In
Secrets of Power Presentations, Peter Urs Bender teaches
readers how to conquer this fear by learning the steps to better
Speech is only one of the many components of communication. People
experience messages using all of their senses. Power Presentations
emphasizes all five elements of a successful presentation: Speech,
body language, equipment, environment and preparation.
Bender does not overwhelm his readers. He raises awareness of all
the aspects of presenting and, in a reassuring tone, explains how
we are all capable of it. The experiences and lessons in the book
enable readers to present with confidence, no matter what the occasion.
Whether you plan on speaking at staff meetings, board meetings,
a town hall or a press conference, Power Presentations will
help you develop your skills.
This book is organized in the same manner presentations should
be - as a complete package. Bender shows readers how to break down
a presentation and turn it into manageable parts. He then lays out
a plan of action which is both easy to read and interesting. Power
Presentations is punctuated by graphs, quotes, charts, lists, checklists
and evaluations, all of which make the book useful as a tool for
self-evaluation. The Secrets of Power Presentations is
a no-nonsense guide to public speaking.
