About this book

The author draws upon his observations of people speaking technically in after-dinner speeches to write a book designed for anyone who has found the prospect of speaking technically to be daunting. He covers: conference presentations; coping with visitors; inaugural lectures; industrial presentations; industrial tourism; lectures to students; presentations to funding bodies; project reports; public inquiries; school talks; section and departmental meetings; and telephone calls and consultations. He offers the reader practical tools and principles for organizing information and making technical communication lively and memorable.
