How to Own the Room Summary


How to Own the Room: Women and the Art of Brilliant Speaking by Viv Groskop

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
'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.
