“Larry has done it again! He is a master at identifying the key elements of transforming a public presentation into a one-on-one interaction - “private speaking” - and making it all understandable and actionable. The structure and philosophy behind building an effective and high-impact presentation are revealed in a humorous and fast-paced read. I found myself nodding and chuckling in agreement as I read Present and Persuade. Larry's coaching can help all of us whose careers and personal successes are built upon leading and convincing others to support and follow us."

“Larry’s book is the “real deal.” Reading his book is like having your own personal coach to guide you through the most difficult situations. Larry provides easy to follow instructions for creating and presenting talks and speeches for any occasion and any audience. I found myself stopping throughout the book to make notes of the simple and powerful steps that he proposes. As I read, I kept finding answers to situations and audience needs that I’ve encountered in the past and will undoubtedly encounter in the future.”
