Nairobi, Kenya, February 03, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Professionals who want to inject some life in their lacklustre presentations, now have a new resource to help them following the launch of the new book, The Presentation Doctor.
Written by Jason Kabera, The Presentation Doctor is a dynamic resource that teaches people how to advance their career by making brilliant presentations. According to the author, there are 7 common mistakes that presenters make. But he takes a unique approach to addressing these problems by attributing psuedo-medical terms to them.
A brief description of the symptoms provided for problems such as Slides Dependency Syndrome (SDS), Presentation Connectile Dysfunction (PCD) and Bloated Data Disease (BDD). The causes of these 'ailments' are also discussed and prescriptions are provided to effectively treat them.
When asked about the inspiration behind the book, Jason, said: "I make hundreds of presentation every year, and sit through many more. I have seen presenter after presenter fall into these traps. I started teaching a course on “Presentation Skills” to help with this problem.
"I searched for a resource that would help. There are many great books out there on presentation skills. But they tend to have a narrow focus. Some focus solely on the mechanics of presentations (how to use presentation software, public speaking etc). Others focus on the science of communication, such as how to be persuasive, psychology and so on."
The Presentation Doctor is a short and engaging read that attempts to build a bridge by combining the soft skills of communication -persuasion, and the hard skills -design, software and delivery.
One reader said: "Very well put together book about presenting professionally. I loved the tips on PowerPoint especially since that is what I use the most. A lot of the advice goes against what I had learned like using bullet points for example. I was taught to use them, and this book teaches to avoid them -using spacing instead. It looks so much better without bullet points. Solid advice- most of which I have put into place on my next talk. Very excited. My presentation as a whole has gone way up after the advice in this book. Highly recommended."
The Presentation Doctor is available in Kindle format at a promotional retail price of $0.99. For further details, visit: http://www.amazon.com/Presentation-Doctor-Identify-Eliminate-Presentations-ebook/dp/B01AIGWCU6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1454103214&sr=8-1&keywords=jason+kabera
