The Art of Public Speaking
Many of you have been called upon to speak in public at one time or another in your lives. At one end of the spectrum will be: "Ladies and gentlemen, please be upstanding and raise your glasses to the adorable couple." At the other end are those who see public speaking as a lucrative business, and the speakers most in demand command considerable fees for their services.
This book is aimed at those of you who have something to say, and want to make a career out of public speaking, whether full or part time.
