Some people are born leaders, blessed with the innate ability to motivate, inspire and lead. The rest of us require a system to achieve those goals through the spoken word. That’s what you’ll find in this book-the proven S3P3 System that resulted in President Ronald Reagan describing Larry Tracy as “An extraordinarily effective speaker.”
A SPECIAL BONUS: The book’s Annex contains Larry’s widely-acclaimed 5000 word article Taming Hostile Audiences: Persuading Those Who Would Rather Jeer Than Cheer. It was originally a speech he delivered to professional speakers, and was then published in the two leading magazines on the art of speaking, Vital Speeches of the Day and American Speaker.
Larry is a retired U.S. Army colonel, with many of his assignments focused on speaking and briefing. In one of these he was the Senior Intelligence Briefer to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The book cover says the S3P3 System is “proven.” Why? Because if he was ineffective in that and other high-level assignments, he would have been fired. The S3P3 System worked for him, and it will work for you. The White House later detailed him to the State Department to debate a very contentious issue-the Central America policy of the Reagan Administration-at colleges and universities. The S3P3 System remained his method, and, again, it worked. Bring Home the Bacon provides you the skill sets to become an influential leader by delivering persuasive presentations. You’ll learn to:
•Make “fear of public speaking” your ally by using it to generate enthusiasm
•Draft your presentation backwards to develop coherence and focus
•Gain from your mistakes with a practice method similar to a “flight simulator”
•Acquire “intelligence” on the problems of audience members so you can solve them
•Use non-verbals-body language and voice-to reinforce your message
•Employ “Shortcuts to Eloquence” to add to your polish
•Answer questions in such a way that you increase your credibility
•Avoid “Death by PowerPoint” while using the program to enhance your presentation
When you “Look inside,” you’ll learn how the S3P3 System can empower you to become a leader who can indeed influence others. The contents of Bacon can make you the leader you aspire to be. And you’ll gain this life-changing skill for a cost less than a trip to Starbucks!
