2016 Summer Presentation Skills Reading List
There’s been a lot of heat in the United States of America recently, so the Greene family is on the road in Europe. Once again Paris will be our base for a month, but we’ll make sojourns to the watery city of Venice, Italy and the Medieval walled city of Carcassonne in the south of France.
While in Venice I created this latest edition of the annual Summer Presentation Skills Reading List. These three books provide fundamental information that, if followed, will make you a better speaker. Add these three books to your summer reading and become an improved speaker by the Tuesday after Labor Day.
1) Presentation Zen
by Garr Reynolds
by Nancy Duarte
3) The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs
by Carmine Gallo
Get a gold star: Read these three books and an additional one from any of the previous Summer Presentation Skills Reading Lists. Have a summer filled with good friends, good food, and good times. Stay cool. Ciao for now.
