The Promise of Speak with Courage

Any speaker, whether amateur or professional, can rise above the fear of public speaking by applying the right set of strategies. However, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for effective public speaking and Speak with Courage offers 56 diverse strategies—practical, rhetorical, psychological, and even spiritual—to support speakers with a wide variety of temperaments and backgrounds. Injecting the book with a moving and inspirational tone, Martin McDermott acts as a speech coach, giving Speak with Courage a “you-can-roll-up-your-sleeves-and-do-it” feel.
