Most people fear giving speeches, almost as much as the rest of us
dread listening to them. The lectern has a cruel capacity to render even
the mighty vulnerable. Fortunately there is a science to the art of
public speaking and it dates back to Ancient Greece. Simon Lancaster will
open up a veritable treasure trove of ancient rhetorical devices and help you
discover how to become a master in the language of leadership.
