The iconic Australian exploration story - brought to life by Peter FitzSimons, Australia's storyteller. 'They have left here today!' he calls to the others. When King puts his hand down above the ashes of the fire, it is to find it still hot. There is even a tiny flame flickering from the end of one log. They must have left just hours ago. Melbourne, 20 August 1860. In an ambitious quest to be the first Europeans to cross the harsh Australian continent, the Victorian Exploring Expedition sets off, with 15,000 well-wishers cheering them on.

There are few people who can naturally present magically; the rest of us need some techniques to make our messages fly. On this audio recording Terry Elston shows you the tricks that allow anyone to deliver the most amazing presentations you could imagine! Some of the things you will learn here: Gain group rapport quickly and genuinely, how to use energy to engage a group of thousands, and the 4-Mat system - a quantifiable process to lead you through the presentation knowing where you are at all times.

Well narrated however experienced presenters wont find much new here. research quoted throughout is up to 30 years old and in one instance incorrectly referenced. The '4 Mat' method outlined in the description is not discussed at all.
Good for those new to presenting.

Aimed at people that are new to concepts of nonverbal intelligence and this should have been stated in the description. Suggest Joe's other work.
