Chapter 6. The Presentation Hand > SUCCESS CARD 22: Write Often

SUCCESS CARD 22: Write Often

The ability to present your ideas clearly and concisely is vital to this game of making moves. Doors seem to open when you can stand and deliver a solid presentation. As a good public speaker, you're often sought out by others and showcased as a spokesperson or authority. Take Ned, for example. He is the associate director of an investment firm's security department and is continually asked by his boss to deliver presentations that the boss should be making himself. However, they both know that Ned's speaking skills are far superior to the boss's, so Ned is often called on to speak internally. As a result, he is gaining quite a reputation as someone who can deliver—on several different levels!

Studies show that most people fear public speaking with a vengeance. Are you someone who would rather have a root canal than speak in front of a group? Fear not. Most people who fear public speaking are actually afraid of impromptu speaking, being called on without warning to say a few words. With proper preparation, however, all forms of public speaking can become easier to handle.
