Summary

Have you ever wondered why some people earn attention and respect when they speak and others don't? The secret to their success can be summed up in one word: gravitas. 

In this revolutionary new book, leading voice coach and speaker Caroline Goyder reveals how to speak so others will listen. Through simple techniques to build your natural gravitas, you will learn how to express yourself clearly, with passion and confidence, to persuade, influence and engage listeners. By being grounded in your values and capabilities, you will gain the authority needed to make people sit up and pay attention. 

Each chapter guides you step by step through practical techniques and exercises to give you the skills for great presentations, productive meetings and persuasive pitches. You'll overcome anxiety, learn how to deal with difficult people and feel calm and in control when public speaking. 

An essential tool for the modern workplace, Gravitas will transform the way you think about yourself and your powers of communication.

This book can change your life.

After 18 miserable months of failure, and a loss of trust and confidence, thank you so much for being a huge part of my recovery. Listening to, and reading GRAVITAS has been immensely useful in helping to rebuild confidence and to find my way through a difficult time.
In particular, having lost my sense of self, I have struggled to be able to present myself honestly and with integrity. This has particularly impacted on job interviews and professional meetings.
Thanks to you, I have been able to learn and really adopt the Gravitas equation because at last I could understand why knowledge alone was not enough. Last week I was successful and have started a new position in which I am able to build and grow.
