‘Inspirational.’ Mary Portas

Most books about public speaking don’t tell you what to do whilst you open your mouth and nothing comes out. They usually don’t tell you the right way to get over the anxiety about performance that the general public naturally have. They don’t tell you what to do in the moments if you find yourself made, as a woman, to feel small. They don’t tell you the right way to own the room. This book does.
