Summary

Join Richard on his quest to overcome a crushing fear of public speaking and discover the secrets of successful communication. His adventure reveals the insights he gained while living in a Tibetan monastery in India where he learned nonverbal communication from monks, then studying storytelling and stage presence at a prestigious London acting school, giving 1,000 business presentations for a Formula One racing team and teaching 50,000 clients all over the world. You'll discover everything he has learned in his 23-year journey while building a multi-million-pound communication training company, including the tools one client used to gain £1.2 billion in new business in just one year, winning every single bid they pitched for. This personal journey is filled with practical strategies that you can apply immediately to transform your success.

Richard walks the talk

I've had the privilege of being coached by Richard as a trainer and I can honestly say that everything he talks about in this book works.

I had no idea that Richard was introverted which I guess shows that his advice is worth listening to and applying.

Quite possibly life-changing

Fantastic. I own a hard copy of this book also, but I’m so glad I’ve listened to the audio version. Hearing Richard speak the words brings it to life and delivers the message even more clearly.
I bought this book to help develop confidence around public speaking. If I put the suggestions into practice I feel it will give me so much more. I can’t think of anyone who would not benefit from this book. I’ll return to it time and again.

A great read!

It's a very helpful and practical guide. Richard conveys his theories in very easy to follow steps. You can really relate to his stories and struggles in the early years. This helps you realise you are not alone and you can become better at presenting, no matter what your experience level. Overall a great read/listening experience!
