Secrets of a Unique & Sexy Speaker sets out the rules of speaking in clear, concise, and easy-to-follow steps that take the mystery and fear out of public speaking. This is an indispensable guide for anyone who wants to, or has to, stand before an audience to deliver a message. Rona Arato, author of The Last Train, a Holocaust Story
Lucky me! I read Secrets of a Unique & Sexy Speaker before two public appearances, one in front of a hundred or so businesspeople and the other before a board of eighteen. I chose several Speaking Tips to practice and test drive. While much of the book might have you nod in recognition, if you re aware of your own ticks and have received feedback about your speaking, you will as I did benefit enormously from consistently applying these techniques to help you improve. As Marion Claire points out, speaking is a mental as well as physical sport that requires preparation to achieve greater freedom of expression. Thank you, Marion, for your thorough, practical and encouraging guidance. Agnes Mura, MA MCC, global leadership coach, www.AMIcoaches.com
