Best Books: 5 Books To Read On Presentation Skills

Your ability to give engaging and memorable presentations is crucial to the success of your business. There are hundreds, if not thousands of ‘how-to’, books on presentation skills, but which ones are actually worth reading?

We reached out to experts in the field to get their recommendations. Here is what they have to say…

#1 The Orderly Conversation by Dale Ludwig and Greg Owen-Boger

No Title

No Description

We were the first in our field to redefine business presentations as Orderly Conversations(tm), a type of communication that is planned to achieve a specific goal but takes place as a spontaneous exchange between presenter and audience.

This book offers a new approach to the getting-business-done presentations you deliver - an approach that's more appropriate for the real world of business and more practical for every type of presenter and presentation.

#2 Sell Like a Team by Michael Dalis

No Title

No Description

Pivotal meetings with clients and prospects now often involve more people - on both sides of the table. Significant technology advances in recent years have enabled customers to gain information about their options faster - and without you. In addition, economic instability, geopolitical concerns, corporate scandals, and public relations blunders have created mistrust and heightened attention to risk and return on investment.

Clients now arrive at meetings and calls ready to give all of their stakeholders a voice and wanting to look behind the curtain to the people in your organization who will own the work after the sale. Team selling unlocks revenue by teaching sellers how to utilize their organizations' resources to build the right team for a presentation and get those stakeholders working together to execute compelling pitches that add value for buyers and win business.
