Be the Best Bad Presenter Ever
Break the Rules, Make Mistakes, and Win Them OvereBook - 2014
Karen Hough doesnt want you to be perfect. People fear public speaking because they worry about having to conform to all sorts of handed-down rules that tie them up in knots and put their audiences to sleep. Its authenticity and passion that win people over, she says, not polish. But you cant be authentic if youre following guidelines that drain the life and personality out of your presentation. Hough debunks over a dozen myths about presenting to make it more fun and natural for everyone. She explains how practicing in front of a mirror makes you worse, why you should never end with questions, and much more. She includes true stories of people who not only were able to become great presenters by being bad but actually came to enjoy it! Like them, by following Karen Houghs wise and witty advice, youll be able to tear up the old rules and embrace and develop your own style. Youll be freed to be a living, breathing, occasionally clumsy human being whose enthusiasm is powerful and infectious.
