In today's competitive world, the ability to speak and have your message heard is more important than ever.

In “Secrets of a Unique & Sexy Speaker: 155 Helpful Tips for Writing Your Speech, Facing the Audience & Overcoming Fear!” (published by Balboa Press), author Marion Claire, a prominent public speaker and a former writer and co-creator of “The Love Boat,” identifies common fears people have of speaking in public and provides solutions for overcoming them.

Claire gives readers 155 quick, easy-to-access tips and techniques on how to write a winning speech, get rid of pre-speech nerves and face the audience without fear. Readers can apply her advice to creating and delivering speeches for any occasion. According to Claire, anyone can learn to look and feel like a unique and sexy speaker. “People fear public speaking because they don’t realize it’s a skill that can be learned,” says Claire. “As a recovered agoraphobic, I want to show others that, with the right tools, the fear can be overcome.”

An excerpt from “Secrets of a Unique & Sexy Speaker”:

“Who we are, when we’re talking one-on-one, is no different from who we are standing in front of a group of 5 or 500. We’re still the same person. We know as much in front of a group as we do in front of a friend. Maybe more, because to prepare our speech we’ve planned ahead, researched our subject, and can deliver our views in an organized, easy to follow manner…”

Claire believes public speaking skills are essential to many areas of people’s lives. “Communication is the name of the game,” she says. “In today's competitive world, the ability to speak and have your message heard is more important than ever.”
