What if…

You lose your place ... your listeners know more than you do ... you stumble because you’re scared to death and ... your job may be on the line?


Business professionals are frequently faced with the daunting challenge of making a presentation or giving a speech. In some cases your career may hang on your ability to express your ideas coherently, confidently, and with style. Whether you’re a CEO, company president, engineer, project manager, pastor, sales manager, or politician—or simply aspire to be successful—The Presenter’s Guide to Being Prepared takes the guesswork out of communicating brilliantly to the world.

Dave Richardson’s first business presentation was a disaster. From that point on in an otherwise outstanding executive career he has made it his life’s mission to master presentation and speaking skills, and to share what he’s learned with his high-level clients—and now with you.

You’ll learn how to:

·                    Prepare to be at your best with great planning and organization

·                    Respond to every “What if…” situation with solutions that work 

·                    Recognize common presentation challenges and avoid them

·                    Conquer your nervousness and get people to listen

·                    Practice and internalize the skills that will help your presentations shine

Use the book as a quick and handy reference anytime it’s your turn to speak!
