Presentations - 7 Deadly Sins and more besides!

How not to undermine your presentation...


Do you want to be an even better presenter than you already are? Do you enjoy a thought provoking entertaining read that will genuinely help you? If so, ‘Presentations – 7 Deadly Sins and more besides!’ is for you.

Highly readable and written with an uninhibited panache, the book is replete with insightful skills that turn the average presenter into a star presenter! Topics abound: from the dormouse syndrome to displacement indulgences; from how to build ethos to presenting matters of contention; from death by power point to the perils of the finger snapper, this is an enjoyable read that will put a smile on your face and provoke new thinking as well.

Philip has won many plaudits as an outstanding presenter. Over 96% of testimonials regularly rate his Seminars and Courses as amongst the best experienced. That is quite some record! Now with his observations of hundreds of speakers, Philip has made this into a ‘must read’ for salespeople, politicians, and speakers from all walks of life. His enthusiasm for his subject literally bounces off every page!

Thought provoking, occasionally contentious and never without passion, this book is not to be missed. An invaluable compliment to its sister book 'The Presentation Secrets of Professional Speakers!'

I found this a very informative book with 21 lessons that are short and snappy, getting the main point of the lesson over without getting too heavy. Summed up with a quick 'Action Point' at the end of each lesson was a great touch to confirm what had just been read.
I thought the book would be enjoyed by those new to presenting with great hints and tips as well as for those that have been presenting for years who may just need a refreshing reminder of things to remain aware of.
Written in a style that was far from boring made this book an enjoyable and valuable read.

by Richard Coupland (NetGalley reviewer)

This book is a helpful guide to anyone who has been asked to make a presentation or speech in front of a group of people. Scenarios are laid out in a simple and informative way to give the reader a better understanding of what may go wrong and how to avoid the obvious pitfalls. The 21 lessons that are covered in this book should be sufficient for anyone who is serious about improving their presentation skills.
