The livelihood of professional speakers is determined by their skill in adapting their material to the demands of the marketplace. This book is about how you can impact an audience, a conference, a work team, an interview, or a conversation. It's about knowing how you are talking to and how to develop an individual style so that the message not only "gets through" but "gets in." Veteran speaker Shirley Nice draws on thirty years' professional speaking experience and shares what she's learned in front of the camera, in boardrooms, and on the road about developing a unique impact to connect with every audience.
Shirley E. Nice earned a master's degree at Northwestern University in speech communications, taught both secondary and college speech and theatre. For the past twenty-five years she has been speaking to corporate, government, and business audiences on how to improve employee relations, handle change, reduce conflict, and build high impact teams. She has served on the extension faculty at the University of California at Berkeley for over twenty years and taught classes at several other universities throughout the country. Her clients include IBM, Union Carbide, Bank of America, US Forest and Park Service, Lucas Film LTD., NASA, and the Kowloon Railway in Hong Kong.
