'Inspirational.' Mary Portas 'Indispensable ... written with style and wit.' Mishal Husain Most books about public speaking don't tell you what to do when you open your mouth and nothing comes out. And they don't tell you how to get over the anxiety about performance that most people naturally have. They don't tell you what to do in the moments when you are made, as a woman, to feel small. They don't tell you how to own the room. This book does. From the way Michelle Obama projects `happy high status', and the power of J.K.Rowling's understated speaking style, to Virginia Woolf's leisurely pacing and Oprah Winfrey's mastery of inner conviction, what is it that our heroines do to make us sit up and listen - really listen - to their every word? And how can you achieve that impact in your own life? Here's how.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The ultimate guide to public speaking. Inspirational." * Mary Portas *
"Plenty of tips and tricks... The most valuable lesson is that, in Groskop's words, 'You don't have to be a great speaker to give an amazing speech.'" * Sunday Times Style magazine *
"Addresses how to overcome the natural performance anxiety many people suffer and how as a woman you can find your voice on a big stage. Championing female speakers from Michelle Obama to JK Rowling, to Hillary Clinton and Oprah, this book aims to help women tap into the kind of inner conviction that makes people sit up and take notice." * Marketing Week *
"The indispensable guide for anyone keen to develop their public presence, written with style and wit." * Mishal Husain *
"Super helpful." -- Lorraine Candy * Lorraine Candy *
