2016 Summer Presentation Skills Reading List

  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.
