Steal the Show By Michael Port
‘This book has taught me that when being on stage, the people listening, want you to win. They want you to be on that stage; they’re there because they want to hear what you’ve got to say. It made me realize there is no need for me to be nervous when speaking in public. The public actually wants to receive the information I’m giving them.’
This book is an inspiring program full of essential advice, that will teach readers how to bring any crowd to its feet. On a daily basis there are moments you must persuade, inform, and motivate others effectively. Each of those moments requires you, in some way, to play a role, to heighten the impact of your words, and to manage your emotions and nerves. Every interaction is a performance, whether you're speaking up in a meeting, pitching a client, or walking into a job interview.
In Steal the Show, author Michael Port draws on his experience as an actor and a highly successful corporate speaker and trainer to teach readers how to make the most of every presentation and interaction. He demonstrates how the methods of successful actors can help you connect with, inspire, and persuade any audience.
