Most of us are quite relaxed and confident when we're with our friends and family. We can tell a story or even tell a joke. But put us on a platform and we can feel very different. When we speak to an audience, we often put on a public mask; and use a different voice. Why can't we seem to be ourselves when we give a talk?
In this audiobook, we will look at all aspects of spoken communication, from structure right through to delivery. We will learn how to have a conversation with our audience - to be ourselves - so that we connect with them every time we speak. In seven simple steps, you can learn to be a confident and authentic public speaker. There are specific exercises at the end of every section for you to practice.
Whether you're a CEO presenting to shareholders, a manager motivating your team, an entrepreneur selling a business, a creative pitching an idea, a charity worker asking for donations, or a parent speaking at your daughter's wedding, this audiobook will help you become a confident and authentic public speaker – so that when you speak, your audience will listen.

Excellent content and brilliant presentation
I thought this talking book does everything it says on the cover and is so easy to listen to. I have learned a lot from this and would recommend to all.
This is the first time I have ever recommended anything but thought it deserves it.

Clear, practical, and specific
This was the very first book I downloaded here in Audible and I certainly did not regret it. I do occasionally give lectures to students and I'd say the pointers given here will change my delivery and stage presence all for the better. This is an audio book that is really worth it!

This was a great book, especially if you're giving a lot of speeches in front of large groups. There was still some pretty great stuff in here even if you're not a lecturer or something similar.
Audio is great for this one because he gives some exercises for you to do to work on your speaking and he actually does it with you in the audio. That was awesome. (Some of them are a little ridiculous and you feel less ridiculous when he's doing it right along with you.)
I am all for audiobooks where authors read their own books because you get the right emphasis and flow of the book that they were going for. His accent threw me off a little at first (just because I wasn't used to accents in the books) but it's really not a problem at all. It's actually nice to change things up a bit!
It's a good read if you're nervous about speaking in front of large groups!

Informative and Insightful
If you could sum up Speak: So Your Audience Will Listen in three words, what would they be?
Will listen again!
What does Robin Kermode bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Author/narrators are not usually my favourite choice, but Robin Kermode does a lovely job. He has a pleasant voice and does not digress into self congratulatory ramblings.
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
The explanation for our physiological reactions to stage fright is brilliant. The author then goes on to provide very concrete ways to deal with this phenomenon.
Any additional comments?
In brushing up on technique to teach public speaking to my 4-H club I picked up this audio book. It was well worth my time and money. Very practical information with examples that are real and make sense.
