Many people fear public speaking more than death. Most wish they could do it better, or at least avoid the sweating, stuttering jitters that plague them before any presentation or speech.
Vikas Jhingran has been there. He was so poor at speaking in public that his supervisor wouldn’t let him make presentations to clients–even when he had done all the work.
Surprisingly, few professional speakers and presenters understand speeches or presentations at a fundamental level. Their overly prescriptive approach actually ends up confusing the speech and the tools that are used to deliver it, instead of connecting with the essential part of speaking–that which engages listeners with the message and the emotions that go with it.
By focusing on the most important aspect of communication–the transfer of emotion–Emote:
Develops an emotion-driven approach that will help you deliver a powerful, effective message despite any perceived handicaps.
Encourages introverts and non-native speakers to find their voices and deliver impactful speeches.
Clarifies the roles of common speaking tools and shows how to use them effectively.
In Emote, Vikas presents an emotion-based approach that will change the way you think about verbal communications. Emote will help you gain the confidence you need to stand in the spotlight and “wow” clients or executives, create connections, and get your message across to anyone.
"I witnessed Vikas transform a mediocre presentation into a world championship-winning speech. He is a true master of his craft. Regardless of your experience, this book will help you become a better communicator, both on and off the stage."--Stephen Shapiro, author of Best Practices Are Stupid"Emote approaches verbal communications from a very human perspective. It will help you improve verbally, whether public speaking or in one-on-one conversations."--Nancy Duarte, author of Resonate"Vikas' workshop on public speaking, which is based on his book Emote, has consistently received stellar ratings by our students.
