Summertime and the reading is easy – Three books to improve your presentation skills by Labor Day

Wow!  How did it get to be summer so soon.  It seems like just last week we packed away our heavy sweaters.  This year the Greene family will be heading off to the beaches of Bethany and Rehobeth in Delaware and the lakes of upper Minnesota, near Hackensack, MN.  I hope that you and yours enjoy a wonderfully fun, adventurous, and safe summer.

This spring I read a lot of books in preparation for leading a series of presentation skills workshops.  Out of my slew that I read I’m going to recommend three.  They’ll provide you with new insights and guidance as you improve your presentation skills.

Read any one of these books, apply the methods, and you’ll be a much better presenter by the Tuesday after Labor Day.  For a gold star, watch Susan Cain’s TED talk which is featured below.

1) Presentations in Action by Jerry Weissman

2) Boring to Bravo by Kristin Arnold

3) Mastery by George Leonard

Susan Cain’s TED talk – The Power of Introverts

Have a great summer!  Enjoy every precious moment of summertime magic that comes your way.

  1. Charles … Great recommendations … I’m a big fan of George Leonard’s classic, just was given a copy of BORING TO BRAVO when I attended a workshop by Kristin Arnold, and look forward to finding a copy of Weissman’s work soon … Now as for learning from introverts, you’re onto something there too! … Enjoy your summer spent with family and friends … John
