If you're presenting, selling, or speaking in public, every word matters. But some words matter most of all: verbs. Verbs are the catalysts of sentences. They bring communication to life -- whether it's written or spoken. The right "power verbs" make any presentation, speech, or business pitch more memorable, impactful, and dynamic. (Conversely, dull and uninteresting verbs can sink your chances to get what you want, even if your audience has no idea why you’re not getting through to them!)

Now, in Power Verbs for Presenters, communications expert and business professor Dr. Michael Faulkner shows you exactly how to choose action-packed verbs that electrify your communications. Packed with hundreds of verbs and phrases, this concise, easy-to-use guide reveals why certain verbs are so much more powerful, and provides sample sentences showing you exactly how to use them.

Using Faulkner's verbs and real-world examples, you can supercharge in-person and written presentations… make more compelling sales pitches… get investors for your business plan… run more effective meetings… motivate others to participate in your events or contribute to your causes… become a more effective and successful student… influence others more powerfully, no matter what you want to accomplish!
