Public speaking can be a frightening, nauseating, harrowing, anxiety-producing, and daunting experience… yet it’s the most effective way to connect who and what you are with many people at once. It’s an opportunity to share yourself and what you know with others; to form a bond and a human connection that lasts long after your applause dies down. Once you have a plan on how to address an audience and a little experience, you may find public speaking is addicting. Peter George’s book, The Captivating Public Speaker, offers you the game plan you need to not only stand in front of a crowd but engage them with confidence and leave them wanting more.”

Would you like to accelerate your public speaking skills while simultaneously laying a solid foundation so that every one of your future speeches connects with and persuades your audience? If so, you can do no better than investing in Peter George’s new book The Captivating Public Speaker: How to Engage, Impact, and Inspire Your Audiences.

I’m a professional speaker and speaking skills trainer. I own over 150 books on the topic, most of which offer a few useful tips, but fall short of providing an in-depth understanding of the topic. Peter’s book is the rare exception that offers insights into every aspect of transforming yourself into a captivating communicator. From understanding why public speaking is a vital business skill to developing and creating a positive speaking mindset to crafting a meaningful message and delivering in your authentic voice, this book provides each step of the process you need.

Use the book as your template for captivating speaking, and you will become a skilled speaker people want to hear, whether you’re in-person or online.
