About the Book

"Public speaking is a 'universal advantage'--a skill that gives you a leg up in nearly any profession or situation--and the single greatest requirement for great speaking is confidence. When you learn to communicate with confidence, it bleeds over into every area. Because this book utilizes a wholistic approach that addresses the entire person and not just exterior skills, your confidence on stage will follow you off stage"--

Book Synopsis

Build your communication confidence and master the ability to inspire your audience

In Speak with Confidence: Overcome Self-Doubt, Communicate Clearly, and Inspire Your Audience, keynote speaker, author, and executive communication coach Mike Acker delivers a practical and hands-on playbook to building the confidence you need to nail your next presentation, speech, virtual talk, or social media post. In this proven pathway to becoming a capable and confident speaker, you'll discover how to combine your identity, message, and skills into one persuasive package.

The author explains how to uncover your identity, define your message, and develop your skills and techniques to become a master communicator. From overcoming imposter syndrome to eliminating a victim mentality, you'll explore concrete methods for improving your presence and ability to take command of a room. You'll also find:

  • The elements of a confident message, including a personal investment in the topic you're discussing
  • Strategies for overcoming limiting beliefs that hold you back and artificially reduce your ability to lead
  • Ways to understand your audience and learn to hone in on the place where your purpose intersects with your audience's needs

An essential new strategy guide for anyone seeking to improve their ability to speak to a group, Speak with Confidence is the public speaking blueprint you've been waiting for.
