******************************************

 

Presentations are an inevitable part of a leader's day to day. They are fundamental to delivering information, motivating staff and building relationships.

 

The Leader's Guide to Presenting is a highly practical guide to delivering engaging and influential presentations. From informal to formal settings, you'll discover how persuasion, influence and communication are critical to your own impact, the motivation and engagement of others and, ultimately, the success of your organisation.

  • How to present when the stakes are high
  • How to structure your message to gain agreement
  • How to deliver with maximum impact and get the outcome you want
  • How to pitch for success and handle difficult conversations

“This is the most effective book I have ever read on the art of presenting and especially for leaders. The Leader’s Guide to Presenting is the one book they would ever need on this subject.”
Adrian Foster, UK Marketing Manager, Parker Hannifin

 

Too many senior people struggle with too many elements of presenting even though they understand how important it is nowadays in winning hearts and minds.It's the right book at the right time. It is bold, yet sensible, profound yet practical, as it is applicable to many different situations where you need to improve the way you communicate and influence.”
Neil Mullarkey, UK’s leading improviser and experienced leadership trainer and coach

 

“ We all know the old line about fail to prepare and prepare to fail BUT this book gives you real insights into how to do that. Will help you become a more complete and engaging presenter. I’ll be using it in my role!’
Paul Rawlinson, Global Chairman, Baker & McKenzie

 

“An indisp ensable guide for global leaders in aiding the preparation of high-stakes, persuasive presentations with structure and purpose to deliver positive outcomes. This book has been an invaluable aid in delivering to my audiences engaging and compelling messages with the necessary punch!! Brilliant!!”
Dr. Graham Woolford, Head of Operations, Unihealth, South Africa

 

“Having coached and trained leaders since 1999, including presentations coaching and training, I am hugely impressed with Jeremy and Tom’s book. The Leaders Guide to Presenting provides leaders with a thorough, practical and easy to use guide to making presentations to different types of audience. I’ve  learned a lot from reading it.”
Jeremy Lazarus MA, FCCA, FCT, Director, The Lazarus Consultancy Ltd

 

“This book crystallises the key elements that can allow any leader to be really present when they present and make a dynamic difference with any audience. You can dip into it or read it in a linear way – whichever way you chose I can guarantee you will find lots of ideas, tools and questions that will allow you to improve your ability to present dynamically and make the impact that will make a real positive difference in your world.”
John Matson, Partner at Arthur Cox, Chair of Lex Mundi.

 

When you present, who you are is on display just as much as the material you are presenting. Tom and Jeremy have nailed this with simple and practical exercises to help any presenter discover more about how they show up to an audience. Critical presentations, perhaps more than any others, require the presenter to win the hearts of the audience before it becomes possible to move them with information, and win their minds. This is a great step by step guide to doing so. I found myself thinking, “I hope the next presenter I see has read this book.””
Paul Matthews, Founder and MD of People Alchemy

 

“An essential and practical resource for any leader who wants to ensure their presentations drive real impact”
Penny Shaw, Chief Risk Officer, Chaucer plc

 

“This is the most effective book I have ever read on the art of presenting and especially for leaders. It truly covers every aspect of presenting effectively to achieve change and motivation within your own organisation or to other groups. It is compelling, interesting and ground breaking in its method and approach. I have already applied the material here to excellent effect and would highly recommend The Leader’s guide to presenting for any aspiring leaders and presenters as the one book they would ever need on this subject. I think it will become a standard work in the years to come.”
Adrian Foster, UK Marketing Manager, Parker Hannifin

 

 “I coach many executives how to present. Once they read this book, they will find it impossible to give a bad presentation. Too many senior people struggle with too many elements of presenting even though they understand how important it is nowadays in winning hearts and minds. I have seen Tom and Jeremy deliver highly impressive training and now they have created a book that forensically examines every aspect of this vital area of leadership. It's the right book at the right time. It is bold, yet sensible, profound yet practical, as it is applicable to many different situations where you need to improve the way you communicate and influence.”
Neil Mullarkey, UK’s leading improviser and experienced leadership trainer and coach

The versatility and skills of the authors, Tom and Jeremy, come through with this complete package: bringing out your own personal style as well as how to make the most impact. Will help you become a more complete and engaging presenter. I’ll be using it in my role!’
Paul Rawlinson, Global Chairman, Baker & McKenzie
