You probably hate giving presentations. You probably hate listening to them too. Why? Because most business presentations are too long, too detailed, too boring....and submerged under a blizzard of PowerPoint.But the single most important presentational tool known to man isn't a slideshow. It's you.Whether you're speaking to one person across a table, 20 people in a boardroom or 1,000 people in a ballroom, it's all about the words you say and how you say them. The Presentation Coach shows you how to use what you've already got to give you clarity, confidence and impact in every speaking challenge you will ever face. You'll learn the unique Bare Knuckle 5-step process to effective presenting, and how to apply it to all business speaking, from large-scale presentations to one-to-one client meetings. Graham Davies has been coaching high-profile individuals from the worlds of business, politics and entertainment in exactly these techniques for the past 25 years. Now it's your turn.Praise for The Presentation Coach"Graham Davies is a brilliantly funny speaker who knows how to inspire and enthuse anyone who sees presenting as a bore, a burden or a source of terror." Nick Robinson, Political Editor, BBC"This book really captures Graham's intense and robust sense of coaching.

Michel Combes, CEO,Vodafone Europe"Required reading for anyone who wants their presentations to enthuse rather than euthanize their audience."

In fact on almost every important occasion when I need to get a message across...You will never regret buying and using this book." George Clarke, MD, Heidelberg UK "Graham helped me develop my very own presentation style, true to myself, with high impact and focused very much on the audience" Phil Clarke, CEO Designate, Tesco"Graham's approach is ruthlessly robust and utterly practical.
