Your Voice Is Your Power--Now Make It Heard More than ever before, the business, entertainment, and political landscapes are ripe for women to accomplish their goals. Women are entering law, medical, and graduate schools in equal numbers to men. But it's still a challenge to make it to the top. Developing excellent communication and public speaking skills gives women the ability to rise to their full potential, seize every opportunity, and realize their aspirations. Whether pitching for new business, delivering a talk at a conference, raising money for a non-profit, or communicating one-on-one with coworkers, women can become effective, powerful communicators when they speak with authenticity and confidence. Deborah Shames, a veteran speaker and master trainer with 18 years of experience coaching high-level executives and celebrities, invites women to step up and be heard. Noting the perfection syndrome and negative self-talk that plague many women, Deborah delivers a how-to for battling these demons and identifies women's special talents--from high emotional intelligence and leadership skills to storytelling. She guides readers in the mechanics of communicating efficiently and constructing successful presentations, even with pressing deadlines. Out Front is the definitive book for every woman who wants to engage an audience and expand her influence, whatever the venue or challenge.
