That’s Books and Entertainment Blog  : Sunday 28th February 2016

Transform Your Communication Skills Speak, Write, Present with confidence

 
Transform Your Communication Skills Speak, Write, Present with confidence is a book created by a master of the craft Steve Bridger.

The book aims to assist you to get where you need to be, where you should be, by stimulating positive personal change.

It distils the wisdom of 11 professional coaching experts and its aim is to develop your speaking, writing and presentational skills.

It promises positive outcomes in not only your professional life but also in your personal life.

It is a practical self-help book which imparts the vital knowledge and information in a fashion that is more conversational than most, eschewing the usual hard to understand managerial flannel that can, rather ironically, bedevil many books on improving communication skills.

You can learn to cope better with nerves before speaking engagements, learn how to craft presentations that will engage your audiences time-after-time. And how to develop writing skills that will enable you to produce clear, concise and effective communications whenever you need them.

The key selling point of this book is that it is not just one voice that you will hear, with only one viewpoint, you will hear from a total combination of 11 specialists who will be sharing with you their expertise, knowledge and experience in the 220 pages.

You’ll learn about a wide range and variety of subjects, including NLP, how to make the best and most effective use of social media, and online presentation techniques and presentational skills from an outfit that employs professional actors to “work magic” on nervous or inexperienced participants.

The different voices combine to create a range of diverse yet dynamic knowledge resource.

It costs a very reasonable £9.95 from Matador and is an utterly indispensable book that should be in the resource library of any businessman, businesswoman and entrepreneur.

It is available from the That’s Books and Entertainment bookshop, along with hundreds of other business books and DVDs. The bookshop will be found to the right hand side of this book review.

The Write Stuff! Steve Bridger has mapped out an extensive and doable guide to making the most of one’s own natural communication skills while improving areas of speaking and writing that need attention. The narrative is easy to navigate and well-written, with a contribution from a number of experienced business academics. Well-honed communication skills are an inherent requirement of many work-related enterprises, academic and commercial.
This is an excellent resource book for a variety of writing genres, including reports, -business plans, proposals and resumes. The section on public speaking would be extremely useful for post-graduate students presenting research proposals, creative industry specialists, and other areas of industry where future funding will rely on pitching ideas in original, innovative, and coherent ways. A must read for anyone who wants to create more impact through their written and spoken word.
Review By Julie McSorley on 7 January 2016

At first I was intrigued. And then… When a friend handed me a copy of Transform Your Communication Skills I thought “Who needs another book on speaking and writing?” I was mildly intrigued by the cover and then I told her I’d read it later. Over the years I’ve come to realise writing is the number one skill in business and number two is speaking. So I picked up this book to see what was different about it. I’m glad I did.

The author enlists 11 experts to help him make this book special. Most books tend to lose their way after the first few chapters. Not this one. It’s clear with no fluff or jargon to contend with. You don’t read this book cover to cover. You pick areas that you want to improve on and go from there. In the chapter on speaking there are voice warm- up exercise that are extremely valuable. Especially if you’re planning on recording your talk. After all, you want your best sounding voice so you come across like the expert you are.

There’s chapters on overcoming shyness and building confidence. Most speakers (me included) get nervous right before a talk. That’s why I like this chapter. It helps overcome any fears or doubts that always creep into your mind. In the writing section of this brilliant book are pointers on press releases. Proposals and reports. (My two most dreaded writing tasks now made easy.) Then there’s sections on how to write a business plan. who doesn’t need that?) Or if you want a better job, then there’s a section on CV’s and resumes. Because there are 11 other experts contributing this book never runs out of energy. Every topic is well explained. If you wanted anything better than this, you’d have to attend an expensive seminar. This is one resource that will help you for years. Review By Clive Cable on 4 January 2016
