How to Create a Powerful Presence when Presenting

Posted September 21st @ 6:33 am by Roger C. ParkerPrint

Nick Morgan’s Power Cues helps you monitor the messages your brain and body project when you’re speaking, presenting…or, even, listening to others

Discover the nonverbal side of speaking and presenting this week when I interview Dr. Nick Morgan, author of Power Cues:  The Subtle Science of Leading Groups, Persuading Others, and Maximizing Your Personal Impact.

Join me tomorrow when I interview Nick Morgan on Tuesday, September 22, at 4:00 PM Eastern.

Years from now, you may remember tomorrow’s live interview as the “wake up call” to re-examining your presentation and speaking style.

Nick Morgan, is the author of numerous books about effective communication skills. He is widely respected for his work with a “who’s who” of top authors, influencers, and thought leaders–many of whom I’ve had the privilege of interviewing on these calls.

Nick Morgan’s “Dirty Secret of Public Speaking”

If you’re interested in cultivating a powerful leadership presence when presenting or speaking, you can prepare for tomorrow’s call by reading Nick Morgan’s recent Public Words blog post, The Dirty Secret of Public Speaking—and What To Do About It. In it, he wrote,

One of the dirty secrets of public speaking is that audiences don’t remember much of what you say. I’ve seen a range of studies over the years showing retention of anywhere from 10 to 30 percent of what an audience hears.

As you can see from his opening sentence, Nick Morgan has more to say about presentations than the usual content and design approaches.

Power Cues tells a different story, one that will help you become more effective when you tell your story or make your case in person to audiences of 1, 5, 50, or 500.

Inside Nick Morgan’s Power Cues

Nick Morgan examines new brain and behavioral science revelations about how humans communicate, and the importance of authentic face-to-face interactions — visual cues, subtle gestures, sounds and signals that elicit emotion — and the profound implications for leaders who are not in-tune to them.

By tapping into these new findings leaders will understand how to become much more persuasive and successful and communicate more effectively.

  • Power Cues describes 7 nonverbal clues. These either work for you, or against you, when you present or speak.
  • You’ll also learn how to “listen to your gut.” This will help you become a more sensitive listener, able to decode the nonverbal clues that others are sending–but you may be currently ignoring.

You’re invited to immediately download a sample chapter from Power Cues–no registration required.
