5.0 out of 5 stars At first I was intigued. And then...
By Clive Cable on 4 January 2016 Format: Paperback
When a friend handed me a copy of Transform Your Communication Skills I thought “Who needs another book on speaking and writing?”
I was mildly intrigued by the cover and then I told her I’d read it later. Over the years I’ve come to realise writing is the number one skill in business and number two is speaking. So I picked up this book to see what was different about it. I’m glad I did.
The author enlists 11 experts to help him make this book special.
Most books tend to lose their way after the first few chapters. Not this one.
It’s clear with no fluff or jargon to contend with.
You don’t read this book cover to cover. You pick areas that you want to improve on and go from there.
In the chapter on speaking there are voice warm- up exercise that are extremely valuable. Especially if you’re planning on recording your talk. After all, you want your best sounding voice so you come across like the expert you are.

There’s chapters on overcoming shyness and building confidence. Most speakers (me included) get nervous right before a talk. That’s why I like this chapter. It helps overcome any fears or doubts that always creep into your mind.
In the writing section of this brilliant book are pointers on press releases. Proposals and reports. (My two most dreaded writing tasks now made easy.)

Then there’s sections on how to write a business plan. (Who doesn’t need that?) Of if you want a better job, then there’s a section on CV’s and resumes.
Because there are 11 other experts contributing this book never runs out of energy. Every topic is well explained.
If you wanted anything better than this, you’d have to attend an expensive seminar.
This is one resource that will help you for years.
