Everything you need to know about how to organise, structure and give an effective business presentation. All in one easy to read book.

I guarantee you won't be disappointed! 

Based on over 25 years experience of preparing and giving business presentations for multi-national companies, to audiences both large and small, this book contains a distillation of current best practise in the sphere of business presentation.

Tips and techniques which have been proven time and time again to make your business presentations more effective.

You can read it from cover to cover or dip in and remind yourself how and what to do before a major presentation. This is a book you will keep going back to again and again.

Book Reviews

"We can never be too good at presentations and we all need to update our skills from time to time. This is an ideal book to dip into especially when you have a critical presentation to make." 

John Cunnell, European Partner, ICR International

"I certainly enjoyed the excerpts on your web site which encouraged me to want to read more – and you don’t disappoint!

Like a good presentation itself – it’s useful, easy to follow and entertaining.

Mark Moore, Sales & Marketing Director for Citizen Systems Europe (a division of the world leading watch company)

It's an invaluable "How To" guide.

Invaluable for the novice presenter, to avoid the pitfalls nobody at work ever tells you about; when you're new you often concentrate so much on your own nerves, that there is no brain-time left for touches such as seating plans and technical run-throughs.

And the book is just as handy for the more experienced speaker, as a checklist and reminder for those who know they know what they're doing ... but want to feel sure they are covering absolutely everything.

I recommend every line manager in the country to buy a copy of this ebook and make it freely available to staff.

I look forward to reading further wisdom from Graham Young -- it's refreshing to see someone who clearly knows his stuff, who is unafraid to share it with the world in such an accessible and practical way.
