.

Book Description

What is the most important ingredient for an effective speech or presentation?
Whether you are one who speaks only on rare occasions or you find yourself addressing an audience every day, this book will be an invaluable tool. Beneficial to the experienced pro as well as the new beginner, Secrets of Dynamic Communication is a practical and effective handbook for powerful presentations of all kinds. It takes the reader through the process of selecting and developing a theme, giving it focus, fleshing it out, and communicating well with the audience. The first half is devoted to preparation, the second to delivery.
Author Ken Davis is frequently hired by individuals and companies around the world to bring his humor and expertise to others in the speaking field, and he is now bringing those concepts to the wider community as well. No abstract theories here, only step-by-step help in preparing and delivering speeches that get results! You’ll soon develop the dynamic speaking skills associated with the very best in the field.


The Secret of Dynamic Communication walks you through the SCORRE method of preparing a talk.  The book's premise is that many times when you hear others speak, you are not exactly clear what their point was.  I would have to concur. In The Secrets of Dynamic Communication the author teaches you to narrow down your topic, develop a plan, and execute a speech that people will remember. He does this with humor and clarity. 

 I requested to review this book because I saw the possibilities of it being used as a resource for a home education high school public speaking class.  I was not disappointed, and feel it is an excellent book to use as a resource or develop a class around. The book will help your student walk through developing a speech, use review questions and fill-in-the-blanks to reinforce learning, and present a speech in a professional and effective manner.  Public speaking is something that all of us are called upon to do at some point in our lives.  Whether we speak to an audience of ten or ten thousand, The Secret of Dynamic Communication is a valuable learning tool.   I highly recommend this book.
