Most people don't like the sound of their voice - but for some, their vocal and communication habits are holding back professional success. Typical problems include: voice pitches too high, nasal and gravelly, mumbling, swallowing of words, speech too soft - people constantly asking to speak up, speaking too fast, difficulty making small talk, difficulty making eye contact, stage fright and interrupting others. Other books address some of these issues but are not grounded in speech science and professional expertise. With dozens of years under her belt as a Ph.D. speech therapist and pathologist, Carol Fleming can get every reader to the right solutions quickly.

"THE PEOPLE WHO ARE CRAZY ENOUGH TO THINK THEY CAN CHANGE THE WORLD ARE THE ONES WHO DO." With these words, Apple Inc., and its leader, Steve Jobs, catalyzed a movement. Whenever Jobs took the stage to talk about new Apple products, the whole world seemed to stop and listen. That’s because Jobs was offering a vision of the future. He wanted you to feel what the world might someday be like, and trust him to take you there. As a leader, you have the same potential to not only anticipate the future and invent creative initiatives, but to also inspire those around you to support and execute your vision. In Illuminate, acclaimed author Nancy Duarte and communications expert Patti Sanchez equip you with the same communication tools that great leaders like Jobs, Howard Schultz, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. used to move people. Duarte and Sanchez lay out a plan to help you lead people through the five stages of transformation using speeches, stories, ceremonies, and symbols. This visual and accessible communication guidebook will show you how Apple, Starbucks, IBM, charity: water, and others have mobilized people to embrace bold changes.To envision the future is one thing, getting others to go there with you is another. By harnessing the power of persuasive communication you, too, can turn your idea into a movement.

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably created dozens of presentations in your lifetime, and many of these in just under a few hours. But ask yourself: Do you really know how to design a memorable presentation that will stick in your viewers’ minds for months, even years to come? The answer is probably no. Most of us have never actually learned the design principles necessary to impact audiences through visual storytelling. Perhaps the closest we have ever come to crafting a visual message is a PowerPoint presentation full of bullet points, overused stock photos and bland color schemes. But these kinds of presentations rarely inspire real change, especially in this new age of visual communication. A good public speaker with a boring slide deck may be able to maintain the attention of an audience for a few minutes, but a good public speaker with a wellplanned and well-designed visual presentation can truly mesmerize an audience. In this book, we’ll cover basic design principles and tools you can apply right away to take your slide decks from mediocre to stunning.
