  • the two step process that will improve every presentation;
  • the four step process all professional speakers use to answer every question, and
  • How you can seamlessly modify your presentation (for the better) during your presentation.

The author addresses the myriad software aids now available and offers helpful strategies on how to integrate the most effective of these into a presentation. From first tip to last, this guide is designed for one purpose only: to take speakers and their presentations to a higher and more successful level – to presentation excellence.

Carlton C. Casler brings to this project nearly three decades as a public speaker, presenter, and trainer. In addition to being an attorney who teaches real estate and contract law, he is certified by his state as a real estate instructor, owns and is the primary instructor for two real estate schools, and is a Professional Member of the prestigious National Speakers Association.
