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.

From the author of the bestselling Mindfulness: Be Mindful. Live in the Moment, Emotional Intelligence is fast becoming the skill to master that will unlock your true potential. You’ve probably noticed that it’s not the smartest people that are the most successful or the most fulfilled in life; being clever, talented, or skilled is not enough. It’s your ability to manage your feelings, other people and your interactions with them that makes the difference.
