If you do long seminars especially all day, this is the best book for such a developing professional speaker that I have read. If you are looking to build a strong 10 to 30 minutes inspiring and/or motivational speech this is definitely not the book for you. If that is what you are looking for then you want Success Secrets of the Motivational Superstars : America's Greatest Speakers Reveal Their Secrets by Michael Jeffreys. Furthermore, Jeffreys is the best overall book on becoming a great speaker. If you are serious about speaking performance you must read this book. If you want to see what an exceptionally well research book looks like read Jeffreys. It is getting harder to find so don't delay. Indirectly Jeffreys shows you how to research by example. Professional speaking is about being a first class expert. Only then develop an entertaining and humorous format and delivery. Or you could shoot for the lower rung of just being funny. Unfortunately, just being an expert does not put you on the ladder.
With the name Zig Ziglar-- his business associate-- all over this book my hopes were to high. The title (Inspire Any Audience) is overdone. Inspire is a misrepresentation. Keep them interested would be more accurate. Page 121 he advises avoiding words like certainly, positively and others. If the word any is not a violation then it will require a Clinton like explanation for the word "is" or in this case "any" from Jeary.
In chapter 8 "Keeping Their Attention" he introduces the concept of business entertainment-a phrase he has trademarked. In the title he uses the words proven secrets. The big secret is that his explanation of business entertainment is shockingly shallow. The worthy gist of is to do bold things to keep the audience engaged.

This book delivers far more than I thought it would when I first purchased it.
My openings have gotten a thousand times better. I've learned how to keep the audiences attention - especially during my longer (2+ hours) seminars. And there's a better flow between changes in topics.
I still pull this book out before all of my major presentations just to make sure I'm still on point. Whether you're a beginner or a professional speaker, I think you'll get a lot of value in this book, not found elsewhere.

I love this book! I refer to it again and again because it helps me stay clear about what I want to present and how to get there in a fun and engaging way. What I most appreciate is that it helps me to better understand my topic by approaching it from the audience's perspective (instead of being my own one-dimensional song and dance). Absolutely recommended for anyone wanting to grow themselves!

A fantastic book on a topic one easily neglects. The book is very clear written, enjoyable to read and re-read (a must), and devided into 4 parts: Before the Presentation, Beginning your Presentation, The Body of your Presentation, Closing your presentation. Tony Jeary succeeded in packing tons of useful information in that little book. A great book for the serious presenter!

If you reed this book and do what it say, you may Inspire Any Audience. Of course there are things that are more common in the American Market but it's not difficult to customize it to any country. I did it for Brazilian Market.
