Knockout Presentations: How to Deliver Your Message with Power, Punch, and Pizzazz
Called the Bible of Public speaking, Knockout Presentations is a “seminar in a book” that reduces fear and gives speakers the steps to craft and deliver a talk that will make them a knockout on the platform! It’s the next best thing to having Diane DiResta there to teach in person. DiResta provides all the fundamentals without the fluff. Speakers learn what confidence looks like, sounds like, and how to speak the language of confidence, reduce preparation time, craft a compelling talk, size up an audience, overcome fear, and master questions and answers. The Dos and Don’ts at the end of each chapter help speakers review and remember the principles even after putting them into practice. Speaking is the new competitive advantage and Knockout Presentations gives speakers tools and techniques, templates, and resources to improve their skills.
Public speaking is a vital component of executive presence. Diane DiResta coaches executives to be influential public speakers. Companies hire Diane to deliver keynote speeches, seminars and workshops to train their teams in effective communication and leadership skills. She knows that to have more influence, you need to have a compelling message that moves others into action. And confidence is a key to driving a powerful message. To transform everyday presentation skills into those that drive more business faster, Diane developed the 4M Masterful Communications System™. For over 20 years Diane has used this system to transform executives of Fortune 500 companies to project presence on the platform and get the results they want.
