Warwick John Fahy5 out of 5 stars - A Great Resource to Use for Your Next Presentation

Presentational Skills for the Next Generation is a quick read. With falling attention spans a feature of modern living, Ginger Marks has written a good introduction to presenting. Each chapter is short and cover a wide range of topics including using technology in presentations, how to find better supporting material like quotations online, and good reminders on what to do before you arrive at a presentation. The chapter on transitions is worth a close read as it tells the reader how to write a transition; an important and often-overlooked element of presentations. This book is packed full of easy to read tips and best of all, for the next generation, it only takes an hour or two to read. Keep this book on hand when you are under pressure to prepare your next presentation.”

Warwick John Fahy
The One Minute Presenter


Ellen FinkelsteinPresentational Skills for the Next Generation covers a wide range of topics that presenters need to know. Some of the topics, such as organizing the content and working with audio-visual technology are rarely covered. The author’s emphasis on rehearsing and considering the audience first are very valuable. You’ll also find excellent coverage on the delivery aspect of presenting, including how to dress, what equipment to pack, dealing with fear, and more. The Resources section at the end is very useful, too.”

Ellen Finkelstein
Presentation skills trainer and PowerPoint MVP


Felicia J. Slattery“As a communication consultant and instructor of public speaking, I have taught hundreds of people how to prepare and deliver successful presentations. For anyone who has to give a presentation, I would definitely recommend Presentational Skills for the Next Generation by Ginger Marks. This easy-to-read book provides excellent ideas for putting together a polished presentation. Ginger’s explanation on preparing and using visual aids to compliment your talk is especially well done. Ginger covers all-important areas of preparing an effective presentation from considering your audience and the location of your talk to your personal appearance and valuable delivery tips and techniques. This book is a great resource that you can refer to time-and-again for every presentation you’ll ever do.”
