Do you dread standing up in front of a group of people to deliver a short talk or presentation? Even the sixty second introduction at meetings? Have you been thrust into a training role with no training yourself for the role? Do you know how to structure your talk? How to get the content right? How to maintain your audience's interest? This user-friendly workbook will help you prepare well to overcome nerves and deliver with confidence an interesting talk or presentation that will be remembered for all the right reasons as you get your message across. It is for people of all ages, at a variety of depth, in a wide range of settings such as schools, colleges, organisations, clubs and societies. Talking the Talk is the fifth in the series of Lifelong Learning: Personal Effectiveness Guides by Rosalie Marsh, which draw from her extensive skills and industrial experience in sales management and work-based learning in adult and further education. It is yet another step in the personal development journey, which is at the heart of Marsh's ethos.

Some of us are frequently in situations where we have to give a talk or presentation. For some, in contrast, their first time is looming frighteningly close. Talking the Talk: getting the Message Across looks at the skills and knowledge needed to prepare well, become confident and overcome nerves, and deliver an interesting talk or presentation that will be remembered for the right reasons.
