I Can See You Naked

“America’s best book on making presentations strikes again.” –Don E. Shultz, Northwestern University

The smart, witty, nationally bestselling guide to public speaking.

“If you get nervous, just picture everyone in the audience naked.” We've all heard this piece of advice on public speaking before. But what about “Keep the ball alive!” or “Be a bit of Springsteen”? There’s more to being a great speaker than removing your audience’s clothes, and Ron Hoff’s I CAN SEE YOU NAKED goes beyond the basics to cleverly and insightfully demonstrate what an effective and engrossing presentation should look like.

Hoff packs his book with funny and functional advice on how to overcome stage-fright and deliver the best possible speech for every occasion. I CAN SEE YOU NAKED will have you confidently facing a waiting audience—and, naked or not, they’ll be hanging on your every word.

    A free-wheeling cannon, often called a “speech,” creates a lot of smoke! Explodes a subject. It takes a subject of some interest and expands it. It is essentially an inside/out presentation.
    A torpedo that speeds precisely to its mark. Starts narrowly and gets sharper. It is essentially an outside/in presentation.
    Which brings us to the type of presentation you’re most likely to be involved in.

    An effective presentation (the kind that you will make) will be a torpedo, not a cannon.

    When people say, “You’re not going to make a speech, are you?”—they really and truly hope that you will not.

    Speeches are presentations that explode subjects. Speeches have a way of getting fatter and fatter as they are being given. (How often have you said to yourself, “What is that guy talking about?”) As speeches expand, they rumble and ramble, and generally create a lot of smoke. (Ever noticed how much coughing a really bad speech can generate?)

    Most speeches have very little impact because they don’t ask you to do anything. I asked an ex-boss of mine what he wanted to accomplish in an upcoming speech. He said, “Oh, I just want to open their minds up.” Fine. Great. Admirable. But most people are not sitting around waiting to have their minds opened up. They are waiting for you to drive home a specific point or idea that they can really use.
