Steps to prepare an effective and entertaining talk and deliver it with confidence
A useful guide for pastors, group leaders, coaches, & storytellers, Ruth Stotter’s little guide will boost your confidence if you are new to public speaking, and it will remind experienced speakers of the basics that insure success in front of large audiences and small. The author’s experience as a college instructor and as a professional storyteller gives her the unique perspective to coach beginning and seasoned speakers. Arranged in an “info-bit” format, this is the kind of guide that can be read and re-read during short breaks from other work. Though small, her book is a convenient and practical guide.
