‘I am now a far more confident person in my work which has some really good flow on effects.’
‘I cannot put into words how much it has helped me.’

What does the e-book cover?

• The ‘how to’ of communication skills:

"One of the most terrifying moments for any speaker is that moment when your mind suddenly goes blank. Once you have read this book, that need not ever happen again. This is a practical guide for how to get starting with speaking in public and includes 500 practice topics you can work on to become a confident speaker."
"Excellent .... and clearly reflecting the author's own well honed skills in the public speaking world. Clearly presented, practical and with a great understanding of how people learn and put new found knowledge into practice. This is a highly credible and valuable contribution to the literature in and around public speaking. Tremendous value. I also recommend Chamberlain's Business and Management Supplement Edition ( in addition to the General Edition ). The Supplement provides many useful and practical topics / tools for improving one's speaking ability and experience in business and management contexts." By Martin W
