Life Is a Series of Presentations

8 Ways to Punch Up Your People Skills at Work, at Home, Anytime, Anywhere

About The Book

Presentation Mastery Is the Key to Professional and Personal Success.
As presentation coach to America's top CEOs, Tony Jeary has become known as Mr. Presentation™. In his work with more than 500 world-class organizations in 35 countries, he has found a common denominator in every situation: Your success in life depends upon how you approach the millions of opportunities before you. And in this insightful and compelling book, Jeary reveals the eight simple secrets that you can put to work immediately to achieve dramatic results both at work and at home -- and everywhere else!
Unless you're a hermit living on a mountaintop, your life largely consists of your interactions with the people around you. Whether you call them presentation skills or people skills, these eight essential practices will allow you to master any interaction, whether it involves a roomful of colleagues, a small group, or just one other person. You will learn to understand both why the eight essentials work as well as how they work, including:

  • the single word that will convince 93 percent of your listeners every time
  • the big question presenters consistently forget to ask themselves
  • the 10 personality types you must be able to recognize and handle
  • the firepower of your own Presentation Arsenal
  • the magic behind the mnemonic I P R E S E N T.

Engaging, informative, and loaded with useful anecdotes, this book will teach you easy-to-use skills that change the way you approach every situation and that will have an immediate impact on you, both professionally and personally. Because your life is a series of presentations.
