Editorial Reviews

Review

This is the Strunk & White of reference books for presentations at C-Level meetings. It needs to be read and then re-reviewed before every presentation by upper- and middle-management executives before they attempt to persuade those at C-Level to approve their proposals. The seven deadly challenges & and how to respond to them make this book a must. The intimate look into the personalities and motives of a number of Silicon Valley C-Level executives is a special bonus -- and invaluable for any presenter who needs to understand his audience. --George Petty

This book is amazing! It combines practical advice from the author that is supported and driven by actual quotes from senior executives. This is not just hearsay; it is straight from the horses mouth. Having photos of the people who are quoted made it even more personal, and having imbedded links to live videos is an added bonus. This is a cookbook, workbook, and motivational book all in one, and a great resource for anyone who has to present to senior staff. --John Warren

This book should be required reading at every business school and in the hands of any anyone planning to move up the corporate ladder. Speaking Up is the best resource out there to prepare professionals to present to executives. I wish I had a book like this 20 years ago. Most people don't know how different it is when you present to the C-level. Most of us learn to do it by trial and error and we have the battle scars to prove it. The book gives you strategy, best practices and information from the executives' point of view. The links to the videos are great because you can see things in action. I will definitely use this book with my clients. Highly recommended. --Jill Wesley

Format: Audio CD
I had a challenging experience when presenting to my company's board of managers some while ago. At that moment I was really affected by it, but after reading "Speaking Up: Surviving Executive Presentations" I suddently understood where I did wrong and what I needed to do from now on in similar circumstances.

I would strongly recommend this book to any person aiming to achieve a deeper understanding of the top level management's world and set herself for a successful career.

I have had the opportunity to meet Rick and his staff at his firm PowerSpeaking. This book does an excellent job of illustrating the value of learning to speak consciously and with purpose.

I finally got some uninterrupted time and read Speaking Up on a west coast flight home - what a fabulous book. And then I used a few of the very important principles in a difficult presentation over the weekend...The book is awesome, awesome, awesome! The examples, the principles are so neatly and clearly laid out...thank you
It is a real treasure and I will use it again. I'll be sending a few friends copies...it's a pocket tool to get a message heard!

Speaking Up is one of the most useful books you could find on this topic. It is not only interesting to
understand the lives and backgrounds of these "big dogs" but their advice is spot on. Gilbert is great
at making this an engaging read and the links to video showing live meetings with real big dogs is the
what puts it in a category of it's own.
