Clear, Concise and Compelling
by Susan Garrity Bish
DON’T LEAVE YOUR AUDIENCE WISHING FOR A TIME REFUND
No one intends to be a poor presenter. Yet many presenters leave their audiences wishing they could get a time refund. This usually occurs for one of three reasons. A presentation that lacks a clear objective usually doesn’t move the audience. Dynamic delivery that is not concise can be confusing. Dull, dry delivery can make a compelling topic uninteresting.

This book provides everything you need to take the audience on an engaging journey to a specific destination.

What Readers Say
Clear and Direct Instructions for Giving Better Presentations
"I read this book the day it arrived while at my son’s practice. It’s chock full of practical tips for giving more effective presentations. I found the chapter (6) on how to create compelling and influential slides the most helpful. As a seasoned presenter for a volunteer organization I’m often forced to use a template and to present content that isn’t my own. Susan Bish reminds readers how important it is to have simple, impactful decks and I feel empowered to make more modifications to ensure my presentations maximize their effectiveness. This is a great read for anyone who struggles with their presentations skills or who was never taught HOW to present effectively."
"I am thrilled about this book because I see where I can improve my connection to my audience quite easily. Why did I not see this before? I have been in public speaking almost my entire career and this book is showing me some new techniques and methods that will assist me greatly. A big thank you to the author, Susan Bish!!"
