QUICK AND EASY WAY TO EFFECTIVE SPEAKING


QUICK AND EASY WAY TO EFFECTIVE SPEAKING

DALE CARNEGIE    Book Number: 86981    Product format: Unknown

Dale Carnegie started teaching public speaking in the year the Titanic went down, and his advice has lost none of its relevance in the 21st century. These updated reissues of his best-selling books are a distillation of the expertise that has put millions of people on the path to self-confident lecturing, networking and simple social engagement. You need to "develop an ability to let others look into your head and heart"; be excited about your subject; and prepare, prepare and prepare. Assemble and arrange your ideas beforehand, and try them out on your friends. The author has numerous practical ideas for engaging people, and true to his own precepts, he backs up all his techniques with case histories of how they worked for him - and occasionally, how they didn't. Always begin at the level of your audience's knowledge: Carnegie mentions a stockbroker talking about banking and investment who started well with simple language, but lost his audience when he went off into jargon like "clearing house" and "short sales". Appeal to your listeners' interests, and if you can get them to participate, so much the better. A sense of humour is great, but avoid the "funny story" opening favoured by amateur speakers. Clear, forceful expression is a mark of leadership, and your audience knows it. 184pp, paperback.
