Our Book: As We Speak

Whether you’re talking to one person or a thousand, your ability to create change in the world is determined by the way in which you express your ideas. Nothing will accelerate your career faster than developing your ability to communicate—and nothing will handicap you more than a failure to do so.

In As We Speak: How to Make Your Point and Have it Stick, Peter Meyers and Shann Nix present a revolutionary, empowering guide to public speaking. This practical how-to guide will enable you to become a more effective, persuasive communicator in all areas of life.

Inspired by Peter's and Shann's work at Stand & Deliver, As We Speak explores the reasons that you are biologically hard-wired to fail when you speak in public — and shows how to overcome these barriers in order to succeed.
