This collection explores the tools and techniques that powerful speakers use to captivate their listeners. Unlike textbooks on communication theory, this volume explains what to do and how to do it. It also covers topics that often are overlooked, including first impressions, leadership styles, and public narratives. In many ways, these topics are just as important, if not more important, than the techniques themselves. After all, powerful public speaking is not simply about delivering an effective message; it is also about exercising leadership.
Speaking for Success is an ideal standalone text or supplemental reader for public speaking courses. It not only teaches students how to develop a compelling presentation, but also gives them the knowledge and tools to speak with confidence.
