Forrest Gump is known for having said Life is like a box of chocolates. It occurred to the author in a dream one night, that life is more like a bowl of strawberries. More precisely, public speaking is like a bowl of strawberries.   A few strawberries, freshly picked off the plant and immediately eaten, can be delicious. A bushel basket of them sitting in front of you with the expectation you had to eat them, here and now, wouldn’t be. But what about a nice strawberry sundae or a good-sized, mouth-watering portion of strawberry shortcake? When it comes to public speaking, there are times when fewer words are better. There are times we are bombarded with a speaker telling us everything they know about a subject. There’s too much to absorb… so we tune out. Then there is the strawberry shortcake of presentations. This is where the speaker whets your appetite, gives you just enough of a serving that you are close to being full and leaves you wanting more. Working With Words: Adding Life to Your Oral Presentations provides you with the recipe for using words to help you become a dynamic speaker. Veteran Toastmaster of over 26 years, Rae A. Stonehouse provides sage advice and helpful tips to whet your appetite to become a more dynamic speaker and presenter. The book explores the following public speaking strategies: The Language of Speaking Improving Your Descriptive Powers Using Vocal Variety to Make Your Presentations Come Alive Using Gestures for a Powerful Speech… and much more! Working With Words: Adding Life to Your Oral Presentations is for any speaker or presenter who wants to take their speaking to the next level.
