Making a presentation at a meeting is often the only chance that a person has to impress his boss with his capabilities, to win support for his favored project, for supporting your boss in front of his boss. Yet, this is a subject not usually taught in schools, even in MBA courses.
This short, practical and easy to read book is written by a series of professionals who discuss every aspect of making a presentation. It begins with some of the basic rules of communications, covers how to appear on stage, how to present a talk, dealing with questions, how to chair a session. It also contains a couple of don't do's: 'How to Make a Mess with PowerPoint,' and 'How NOT to give a presentation.'
This book is now in its second edition which allowed the individual chapter writers a chance to look over what they had written before and apply comments/questions from readers. The book is written in England by members of the medical profession, so once in a while a comment will sneak in that you may have to adjust to your own business.
