Welcome to "How to Write Speeches and Presentations," a book written specifically for those who want to improve their writing skills and apply them to writing speeches and presentations. The book is based on writing workshops that I have taught for corporate clients and other writers. This book is for you if you are looking to: become a more efficient and effective writer; organize your thoughts before you write; write for a defined audience and engage that audience; make your points in a clear, concise, focused manner; apply your writing skills specifically to speeches and presentations. Having a speech or presentation about which you are confident makes the delivery easier. If you are confident in your writing, you may still have butterflies but the overall delivery will become that much easier. In short, this book will help you write in a more focused manner and will help you effectively structure your written communication when writing speeches and presentations.
