  1. A real bargain Suze, I am sure it’s packed with excellent advice

    • It is Lynn – in the book I’ve tried to share all the lessons I’ve learned (many the hard way!) about writing and delivering good speeches, and I hope readers will find all that experience useful.

  2. Hi Suze,

    What a great idea! I am sure your eBook will be a helpful toolkit to crafting a great speech.

  3. Sounds fabulous! (And since CommentLuv doesn’t think I typed enough words, I’m adding this worthless note.)

    • Well, I think it’s pretty good – certainly it covers all the basics plus some useful tips many people won’t have thought of. And dear old CommentLuv … what it is to be a patronizing piece of (albeit digital) machinery…!

  4. I’m half way through reading the book and find it VERY useful. Several times I found myself thinking ‘wish I’d thought of that’ or even more ‘wish so-and-so had read the book, it wouldn’t have been such an awful speech’!!!

  5. […] At a recent seminar we were discussing this and my good friend Maureen Windridge made the point that she sometimes develops a presentation speech from a blog post she has written. The other way around: transcripts of presentations can make good blog posts, print articles, and even short eBooks depending on their nature and length. That’s another reason why (in my opinion) it’s a good idea to write a script of whatever presentation you’re going to make … even if you only use it for reference on the day. More on that argument here […]
