“Be the Best Bad Presenter Ever is my second favorite book on public speaking!”

“Public speaking is the #1 fear of almost everyone. People are more afraid of speaking to a group than they are of snakes, spiders, or even burglars. But fear no more! Karen Hough’s new book shows you how to feel your fear and do it anyway. Learn how to fumble, stumble, or even forget your lines—but still deliver a killer presentation!”
—BJ Gallagher, coauthor of A Peacock in the Land of Penguins

Her videos that support the book are easily accessed and very helpful. I just gave a presentation yesterday that I KNOW was much better because I had Karen supporting me all the way. In the videos, you just feel her rooting and pulling for you. I did several things deliberately because of her book: I practiced more (yesterday alone, I did it 5 times), I did NOT practice in front of the mirror (as usual), and I practiced with a louder voice as if I were in front of an entire audience. I also resisted the desire to put a lot of information on my slides and instead went with few slides that contained pictures or quotes that went across the entire screen. I also told a story before I gave ANY statistical information. I got great feedback about the presentation!
This is truly a great resource that I will use time and again! Thank you!!
It's a swift read and it's packed with realistic examples that you can take to your next presentation. Be BAD already and get it!
