How you can find love at the podium.

Love from your audience. Love of public speaking. And love of your best self.

Saskia Shakin's insightful release, More Than Words Can Say: The Making of Inspired Speakers, is for you — if you've ever dreaded getting up in public — if you'd rather dig ditches than stand in front of a group. And especially, if you are finally ready to turn your fear into your forte.

More Than Words Can Say is unlike any other book on public speaking. It dwells less on the mechanics of speaking and more on how you dwell within yourself.

Here you will find how to inspire yourself and become inspiring to others. You will learn how to access your own charisma and how to find your voice so that your message comes across as unique as you are.


The Power of Words

Every speaker wants to step on stage and feel powerful. So where does that power come from?

What makes one speaker riveting and another a crashing bore?

Why can some speakers hold an audience enraptured and others engender clock-watching?

Answers to these come from within, not from techniques or tips from me or any book. Riveting speakers play to their strengths and touch the audience in their hearts.

A good coach will help you connect emotions with thoughts, helping you hear what you're saying the way the audience will, not just the way you hear it in your head.
