It fills a gap in this market with a more sophisticated treatment of public speaking. Most books in this genre are gimmicky, ‘tips and tricks’ books. Nick offers both a more historical treatment of public speaking alongside practical guidelines. ‘Kinesthetic’ speaking involves actively ‘listening’ to your audience with your whole body, and is the element of public speaking that moves audiences to action.
This book teaches managers of all levels how to successfully use this type of public speaking to engage audiences of any size, intellectually, emotionally, as well as physically.

Praise for Give Your Speech/Working The Room
Some of the advice will surprise you, but all of it will challenge even the most confident orators to rethink how they communicate and, ultimately, to do even better.
Kim Campbell, former Prime Minister of Canada
Words are the best tools we have for moving people to action. Spoken words can instill courage and ignite emotions; they can upend stale dogmas and illuminate new horizons—but only if you know how to truly connect with your audience.
Gary Hamel, author, Leading the Revolution
The clarity of Morgan’s audience-centered approach is enormously appealing in a field littered with gimmicks and psychobabble. Working The Room is worth more than a thousand copies of PowerPoint!
