The In An Instant series is a new brand of user-friendly, engaging, and practical reference guides on core business topics, which capitalizes on the authors' extensive experience and knowledge, as well as interviews they have conducted with leading business experts. Written in an upbeat and engaging style, the series presents 60 tips and techniques with anecdotes, examples, and exercises that the reader can immediately apply to make their work life more efficient, effective, and satisfying.

Whether it?s leading a brainstorming meeting for a staff of five or giving a keynote speech to an audience of 5000, public speaking with confidence and competency is an essential skill for success. Unfortunately, many people feel uncomfortable and even afraid when it comes to standing up and delivering a presentation. The popular comedian Jerry Seinfeld once joked that because American's fear of public speaking was on par with their fear of death, at a funeral most people would rather be in the casket than giving the eulogy.

Public Speaking In An Instant shows the reader how to make all their presentations professional, polished, and painless. The book provides time-proven techniques on writing an engaging presentation, developing an interactive style, reading and responding to an audience, and making the most of visual aids.

Topics include:
Use body language to get your message across
High energy equals high impact
The power of silence
Focus on the message, not the slides
Be funny, not foolish
The key to spontaneity: preparation
