Stand and Deliver!
by Ian Nichol

A much-praised speaker and speaking coach, Ian Nichol has written a thorough and authoritative guide to public speaking.

The book is written in an engaging, informative and occasionally confessional style, with a great undercurrent of humour. It makes for a relaxing and highly enjoyable read, while also reinforcing Ian’s no-nonsense message on how we can dramatically improve our speaking performances.

Ian sets out with unfailing honesty his personal experiences of speaking triumph and disaster to draw important lessons for us all. He provides countless practical tips and suggestions in the process. He recognises that what works for one speaker may not work for another: the result is a highly pragmatic book that will boost your confidence and give you a much deeper personal understanding of the subject. No other speaker can compare with you because no other speaker has your range of qualities and experience: Ian will show you how to exploit these advantages to the full.

In demolishing the destructive myths about public speaking, Ian will show you how to think positively about speaking nerves and use them to help you, not hinder you. His advice will stop you worrying about your body language so you can focus on the talk itself.

The book’s great overall message is that it is a straightforward matter to get a lot better at public speaking. Ian demonstrates that everyone can speak confidently in public, whether that be in a small meeting or before a large crowd, if they are prepared to put in the groundwork and have a go.

Public speaking is a hugely valuable skill, relevant to everyone in every walk of life. The book will challenge your preconceptions, make you really believe you can succeed at it, and give you all the tools to do so.
