Author Tab Edwards Releases His Latest Book: Batman, Robin, David Beckham, and the Naked King. The "Definitive Guide to Becoming a Getter Presenter."
Philadelphia, PA, February 21, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Author Tab Edwards releases his sixth book entitled "Batman, Robin, David Beckham, and the Naked King" in which he shares the value of his experience to help beginners as well as skilled professionals to become more effective presenters and public speakers.
According to Tab: "Whenever I present at a seminar, speak to an audience of business professionals, or speak to a class of students, I am often asked for suggestions of things that people can do to become better at public speaking and delivering presentations. I typically suggest that they consider three simple rules that have served me well over the years: (1) Establish the desired outcomes of the presentation from yours and the audience's perspectives; (2) remember that content is king, and the most effective presentations are those where the content supports the desired presentation outcomes; and (3) when using presentation slides such as PowerPoint, follow my 'KEN Principle (TM)' and Keep 'Em Naked. Slides should be the Robin to your Batman and should support your presentation, not detract from it."
After receiving "literally hundreds" of such requests, Tab felt that the best way to share his presentation improvement suggestions & best practices with the broadest possible audience was to compile these practices and teachings into a book.
The book takes a realistic, non-theoretical approach to creating and delivering effective presentations, and is based on more than 25 years of main-stage presentation & public speaking experience, and presentation-effectiveness research; all of which Tab shares with the reader through this book.
As for the unusual book title: "The original book title was going to be 'The Guide to Becoming a Better Presenter' or something equally lame” says Edwards. “But one evening while I was writing the chapter on 'Presentation Slides,' I thought about how slides should be to a presenter like Robin is to Batman: they should support him as needed, and then fade into the background until needed again. And that made me think about using Batman and Robin in the book title somehow. From there, I thought about content being 'King' and presentation 'goals' being valuable. And the title was born!"
