about this book

What makes a great speech by a leader memorable was likely a mix of authenticity, stage presence, masterful delivery, and–above all–an inspirational message. Nobody ever walked out of a great speech saying, “I loved the way she used PowerPoint.” Yet, all too often, speakers rely on tools like it to carry them through a presentation.

Real leaders speak to make a difference, to promote a vision, to change the way people think and feel and act. Their ability to lead goes hand in hand with their ability to get their message across, no matter what size audience they’re addressing. Drawing on his years of experience in coaching executives, Christopher Witt shows not just how to make a speech but why and when you should make one.

In chapters that can be read in five minutes or less and in a book that can be gone through in one sitting, Witt shows readers how to become more confident, more commanding, more compelling speakers. This book is also about leadership and about how people–CEOs and PTA presidents, small business owners and sales reps, middle managers and techno geeks–can present themselves and their ideas with greater impact.
