We had Fern present at our conference and her session was the most engaging one. People in the room were having fun and learning at the same time! She was able to improve everyone's memory at the end, showing how effective her techniques are. Her book is a must-read for anyone who has to present information.

Andrea Huda Conference Chair, Continuing Education Association of New York

A great resource for anyone looking to improve their presentation skills. Chan has provided useful gems and tips that are very practical for someone to implement. The power prompts act as both learning points and a great checklist to use when preparing your presentations. Loved the C3PO acronym & reference.

Mick Spiers 5-star Book Reviewer

As a busy working mom, I needed something quick and simple that would give me some pro-tips on public speaking and presenting at work and in the classroom. I've always dreaded speaking to large groups and have total imposter syndrome. The author of this book broke it down simply and in a fun way so that I feel totally empowered to rock my next presentation! I never have time to read and when I do, I'm so tired I can't focus, so this book was absolutely perfect for me. Seriously funny anecdotes I can relate to, and tips I can use right away. I'm excited to put some of these ideas into practice!!!
