UP FRONT IN CONTROL

UFIC

I’m so pleased this book is back on the market again and you can now buy it directly from the author, rather than through Amazon. I’ve known Peter Miller for a very long time and I’ve read this book multiple times and I know you will too.
Pete is an accomplished MC, Speaker & Coach and a mentor to many in the industry. He wrote the book in conjunction with another legend, Ron Tacchi who had a long career as a Speaker, MC and then successful Speaker Bureau owner.
Their years of experience are laid out in the eBook that focuses squarely on the world of the Corporate MC . How to do it, How to sell it & some excellent Run Sheets and Checklists. If you want to work in the corporate world, you need this book. FULL DETAILS

The Wealthy Speaker – Jane Atkinson

Excellent book, from a former speaker agent and now speaker coach. There is a package available with audio and workbook. http://www.speakerlauncher.com

She also runs workshops with another of my favourite speakers Joe Calloway.

 

Up Front In Control – Peter Miller & Ron Tacchi

Great Masters of Ceremony reveal their Trade Secrets. Fantastic book. You used to be able to buy an eBook version but it seems only to be available as a paperback.

 

Book Yourself Solid  – Michael Port

Another excellent book with great advice and plenty of exercises. Great for anyone selling themselves and their services.

Facilitation Skills

Many MC’s are asked to help facilitate sessions, including Panels, Goal Setting & Planning Workshops. These two books are very comprehensive, I use them a lot.

The Secrets of Facilitation  – Michael Wilkinson

Facilitating with Ease  –  Ingrid Bens

 

Win the Crowd – Steve Cohen

The Millionaires’ Magician, Steve Cohen looks at Influence, Charisma and Showmanship, essential skills for the Expert MC

 

Steal Like an Artist  Austin Kleon

The War of Art  – Steven Pressfield

Both fascinating books on the art of being an “artist.” Creativity & Productivity.

 

The Million Dollar Ipad   Scott Grossberg

Scott is a friend who has a talent for finding the very best apps and tools for iPads. Save time and money with his terrific book.

 

Virtual Freedom   Chris Ducker

Hiring a virtual assistant may not be as expensive as you think and it could easily catapult your business to a new level. The Ducker book is a terrific overview and guide to using VA’s from the Philippines. It certainly helped me put my VA in place.

Jab Jab Jab Right Hook   Gary Vaynerchuk

Interesting overview of the various Social Media Platforms and strategies to use them well to grow your business. Plenty of great examples.
