This updated second edition of SHOW TIME! describes the key factors that make up a successful presentation. Advice is offered on: overcoming the various barriers to communication; using relaxation techniques to handle your nerves; understanding your audience; recognizing the impact of non-verbal language; improving the physical aspects such as posture, voice and attire; structuring the talk for clarity and retention; using notes effectively; designing clear visuals and handouts; handling questions skilfully; and practising and planning beforehand.
I love the title of this book — Show Time! I think it encapsulates what giving a good presentation is all about. It is a ‘must read’ for anyone who wants advance their career and is likely to be asked, at some point, to make a presentation. Ellen Gunning, Director, Irish Academy of Public Relations
