Leaders speak – or they should speak – to make a difference, promote a vision, and change the way people think and feel and act. Real Leaders Don’t Do PowerPoint (Crown Business) shows readers – whether they’re CEOs or PTA presidents, small business owners or sale reps, middle managers or techno geeks – how to influence and inspire audiences every time they speak.

This book isn’t just about speaking. It’s about leadership and about how all people – even if they don’t have the title or position of leader – can present themselves and their ideas with more impact.

“By gearing his expertise to leaders who must wean themselves from PowerPoint and similar business crutches, communications consultant Witt has struck figurative gold.” -Booklist
