Summary Speaking in front of a group of people is one of the most daunting experiences that you ever have to face. And yet, it's one of the most important skills a person can possess. We all have the skills necessary to present brilliantly to inform and influence our audience, through our day to day experience of conversations. The Natural Presenter tells you how you can harness this conversational energy and fluidity when making a presentation to become an inspiring and engaging presenter - especially important when you have to present complex material to a non-technical audience. It looks at the key areas to consider when holding presentations. The book is broken down into five logical sections with helpful exercises to put ideas into practice. It looks at the main difficulties presenters face, right through to the psychology behind presenting and overcoming natural anxiety and nerves. This is the first complete presentation guide available to professionals. It debunks many of the myths surrounding public speaking, and lays out a clear and practical path for anyone who needs to present
