Lilyan Wilder is a top communications consultant whose client list is a veritable who's-who in the entertainment, political, and business realms-Oprah Winfrey, Maria Shriver, Charlie Rose, and Katherine Graham are just a few of her clients. In 7 Steps to Fearless Speaking, Wilder lays out her blueprint for successful public speaking. These straightforward steps teach people in all types of careers and lifestyles to improve their oral communications skills by learning to focus on the voice as an instrument, structure ideas, start dialogues with audiences, use props, and more. The book includes examples and anecdotes from Wilder's own work, and a number of exercises to help the reader implement the ideas set forth. In addition to the 7-step program, Wilder also includes two "kits"-the "Emergency Kit" and the "First-Aid Kit"-to help readers who either have to do a speech with no time to prepare, or provide off-the-cuff comments.
