It’s true that many people get anxious when they are told they have to give a speech.  My daughter is one of them?  Are you?  If you were told today that you had to give a speech tomorrow would you seize up in fear or would you eagerly take on the task? 

Either way the book “Secrets of Dynamic Communication” by Ken Davis is a great resource to have on hand.

What is the most important ingredient for an effective speech or presentation?

Whether you are one who speaks only on rare occasions or you find yourself addressing an audience every day, this book will be an invaluable tool. Beneficial to the experienced pro as well as the new beginner, Secrets of Dynamic Communication is a practical and effective handbook for powerful presentations of all kinds. It takes the reader through the process of selecting and developing a theme, giving it focus, fleshing it out, and communicating well with the audience. The first half is devoted to preparation, the second to delivery.

Author Ken Davis is frequently hired by individuals and companies around the world to bring his humor and expertise to others in the speaking field, and he is now bringing those concepts to the wider community as well. No abstract theories here, only step-by-step help in preparing and delivering speeches that get results! You’ll soon develop the dynamic speaking skills associated with the very best in the field.

We’ve heard Ken Davis speak in person and eagerly awaited his radio spots while driving in the car, so even while knowing this was a book to bolster people’s confidence in speech giving, I expected it to be a bit more humorous, and was a bit disappointed that it wasn’t.  (If you’ve ever heard Ken Davis speak, you’ll understand where I’m coming from.)

Once I realized I wasn’t going to be rolling on the floor holding my stomach from laughing, I looked at the book from the angle it was written, and realized that it’s probably one of the best sources I’ve read on being effective in conversation.  Whether you’re standing in front of a crowd of a dozen or 12,000, in a job interview or writing an essay, the book is framed in a way to help you get your point across in whatever you say.

I thought it was fantastic the way Ken Davis lays his SCORRE principle out and I learned several things.

Anyone who practices the SCORRE method will recognize the value in it.  They will be more engaging with others when using it and they’ll make their point clear.

And for those of you who are homeschooling at the high school level, this book is helpful for a speech class. 

What’s your reaction when you need to give a presentation or speech in front of others?  I would propose that there is a rare person that wouldn’t glean something out of this book.  If you’re looking to be more effective in the way you present your ideas – read it.

  1. I need to pick up this book! I can plan ahead what I am going to say but then get all jelly knee'd when it is time to do it.

  2. I need to work on being in front of people.. I actually get hiccups if I do public speaking.. the weirdest thing ever. I need to read this book!

  3. I'm very shy and I have an extremely hard time talking in front on people. I've tried everything under the sun, but nothing has helped me get over my shyness. I'm definitely going to check out this book as I'm SO tired of being shy, especially when it come to public speaking.

  4. I get very nervous at the thought of speaking in front of people, however, once I am actually doing it i do pretty good:)

  5. I don't like public speaking but I find once I'm up there and just in the moment of doing it I'm ok. It's getting up there that's hard.

  6. I am a teacher and can talk in front of students any day. Adults on the other hand, that is a different story. I need to read this to help with that.

  7. I haven't really needed to speak in front of large groups but I am getting better on a smaller scale.

  8. I am not a great speech-giver. I took 2 classes in college, but obviously, the things I learned didn't stick with me! LOL!

    If I had the opportunity, though, I would probably take it just so I could work on the skill.

  9. I could definitely learn from this book! I'm pretty outgoing, but don't enjoy speaking in front of a crowd. I'd be interested in learning more.
