Summary

Forrest Gump is known for having said Life is like a box of chocolates. It occurred to the author in a dream one night, that life is more like a bowl of strawberries. 
More precisely, public speaking is like a bowl of strawberries.   
A few strawberries, freshly picked off the plant and immediately eaten, can be delicious. 
A bushel basket of them sitting in front of you with the expectation you had to eat them, here and now, wouldn’t be. 
But what about a nice strawberry sundae or a good-sized, mouth-watering portion of strawberry shortcake? 
When it comes to public speaking, there are times when fewer words are better. 
There are times we are bombarded with a speaker telling us everything they know about a subject. 
There’s too much to absorb… so we tune out. 
Then there is the strawberry shortcake of presentations. 
This is where the speaker whets your appetite, gives you just enough of a serving that you are close to being full and leaves you wanting more. 
Working With Words: Adding Life to Your Oral Presentations provides you with the recipe for using words to help you become a dynamic speaker. 
Veteran Toastmaster of over 26 years, Rae A. Stonehouse provides sage advice and helpful tips to whet your appetite to become a more dynamic speaker and presenter. 
The book explores the following public speaking strategies:The Language of SpeakingImproving Your Descriptive PowersUsing Vocal Variety to Make Your Presentations Come AliveUsing Gestures for a Powerful Speech… and much more! 
Working With Words: Adding Life to Your Oral Presentations is for any speaker or presenter who wants to take their speaking to the next level.

    How to Train Your Voice Instantly!
     
    In a world...where your voice totally matters - what do you do if you don't have the sexiest voice, the most commanding voice, the most articulate voice...or are simply not happy with the voice you have?
     
    There is a myriad of reasons to why you would want/need to have a better voice, such as...
     
    * You want to be listened to more instead of falling on deaf ears by other people who can't understand you or can't stand the sound of your voice.
     
    * You want to have a better voice for occupational reason if you're a singer, actor, speaker, etc., in order to get ahead professionally.
     
    * You want to have a better voice to attract the ladies or gentlemen and make more friends for a thriving dating and social life.
     
    * You want to overcome speech impairments that are causing you to stutter or mispronounce your words and creating all sorts of problems for you.
     
    * You want to always feel confident knowing you can walk into any room and command attention with a voice that conveys power and is music to people's ears.
     
    Are you familiar with the proverbial saying "it's not what you say, but how you say it" and how your actual words only make up "7% of communication"? Well, your voice makes up a remaining majority of that.
     
    Thus, how you come across to those around you is determined by your voice, even more so than appearance. Have you ever witnessed a person who didn't' have the polished look, but the second they started talking you became in "awe" by the spellbinding sound effect they had...while the opposite could be said for somebody who looked like a million bucks but didn't have the million-bucks voice to go with that appearance.
     
    You certainly can retrain your voice to give it more control in how you want it to sound from tone, pitch, volume, and even accent by doing a series of vocal training exercises.
     
    Within "Instant Voice Training":
     
    * How to bring your voice forward via doing "mouth pull-ups" to unleash your dynamic, vibrant powerful voice.
     
    * How to determine the type of voice you have and the best approach to calibrate it for best utilization.
     
    * How to apply singing techniques to your speaking voice to propel your vocal projection to a whole new level.
     
    * How to practice sustaining sound control when speaking for long periods of time so you don't damage your vocal cords.
     
    * How to perform the breathing muscle "push up/release out" technique to allow more air intake for clearer articulation with resonance.
     
    * Plus, custom practical "how-to" strategies, techniques, applications and exercises on how to improve your voice.
     
    ...and much more.
     
    Imagine being able to go anywhere knowing that you can speak up whenever you want with a voice that people will listen to and accept what you have to say because you're so eloquently articulate. That's what having a golden voice will do for you.
     
    Your voice is the ultimate weapon in your arsenal. It can move mountains.
