Public Speaking Super Powers: Unleash Your Inner Speaking Superhero and Communicate Your Message with Confidence
Carma Spence, author
IF PUBLIC SPEAKERS WERE SUPERHEROES, WHAT WOULD THEIR SUPERPOWERS BE? AND, COULD YOU DEVELOP THOSE SUPERPOWERS YOURSELF? Author Carma Spence asked these questions of 85+ speakers and discovered the answer was, "Yes!" Three out of every four people suffer from speech anxiety, and research suggests that people who don’t confront and overcome that fear are less successful in their careers and life. However, people often look at successful speakers as superheroes with superpowers they, as mere mortals, could never possess. Using interviews with business and professional speakers, as well as the author’s personal experience and training, and additional research, Public Speaking Super Powers uses the metaphor of the superhero to turn this belief on its ear. It shows readers that all the factors, skills and techniques needed for success in speaking are learnable, attainable and achievable by anyone who chooses to make the effort to embody and use them. From The Power of Passion to the Power of Handouts, and all the "powers" in between, you'll learn how to unleash your inner Public Speaking Superhero and communicate your message with confidence.
