Resources

How to Speak so People Listen is filled with valuable resources; in particular, there are over 20 Speaker’s Checklists.

I have prepared ten items for you to download and put into your briefcase or onto your mobile device.  These are free pdf files and all I ask is that you respect my copyright and, if you copy them to a friend or colleague, that you tell them where you got them from and how good the book is (your honest opinion, please!)

I have also made a series of videos to accompany the book.
You can see my One Minute How to Speak so People Listen Tips here.

For a summary of some of the key ideas, take a look at the How to Speak so People Listen infographic.

By the way, why not tell me how good you think the book is.
