No of Pages:

ISBN No:

ISBN-10: 3639231813

ISBN-13: 978-3639231816

About the Book:

Among the various ESL communicative speaking activities, oral reporting activities promote oral fluency on the one hand, and public speaking skills on the other. These oral presentations function as excellent generators for students language, and can simultaneously improve their use of non verbal communication.

In middle and high schools, a variety of factors work to under play the role of English language presentations. This becomes a serious problem when students graduate, unprepared for the social professional, and academic demands required for these skills.

This study, was therefore, an attempt to investigate the teaching of oral Presentation Skills in schools in UAE. Data was collected through workshops addressing the audience of English teachers. The teachers’ responses suggested widespread misconceptions regarding the implementation of oral Presentation Skills in their classrooms. Yet, the findings indicate that teachers are willing to include oral presentations if they receive the appropriate training in this field.

Jerry Weissman is the world’s number one corporate presentations coach.  His private client list reads like a who’s who of the world’s best companies, including the top brass at Cisco Systems, Microsoft, Yahoo!, Intel, Intuit, Netflix, Dolby Labs and many others. Mr. Weissman founded Power Presentations, Ltd. in 1988. One of his earliest efforts was the Cisco Systems IPO road show.

That endorsement led to more than 500 other IPO road show presentations that have raised hundreds of billions of dollars in the stock market.

Mr. Weissman’s focus widened from coaching IPOs to include public and privately held companies. His techniques have helped another 500 plus firms develop and deliver their mission-critical business presentations.

Mr. Weissman is also the author of three books, the bestselling Presenting to Win: The Art of Telling Your Story, named by Fortune magazine as one of eight must-reads; The Power Presenter: Technique, Style, and Strategy from America’s Top Speaking Coach; and In the Line of Fire: How to Handle Tough Questions…When it Counts.
