Description
They say Peter Settelen put marbles into the Princess of Wales's mouth! Just Talk To Me... guides you through what he really does to help people talk to each other. Talking to someone for the first time can be a truly painful experience. So too can talking to your lover, your child or your boss! Talking to five people in a meeting, thousands at a conference or millions through radio and television, can become a nightmare! Drawing on his experiences as an actor/director and having helped people in all walks of life, including hundreds of newscasters, presenters and public figures to get up and talk, Peter has developed a unique approach to understanding the needs of the listener as well as the speaker and what's really going on when we talk to each other. This book won't teach you how to fake what you feel, nor how to hoodwink anyone into believing what you don't believe yourself. What it will do, by examining the qualities of a perfect conversation, is to help you find and explore your very private voice - your true voice - the one you always knew was there, but were afraid to use. Through a series of simple exercises and a little imagination, you'll not only turn the fear that may swamp you into something you can use to break through your emotional sound barrier, but also give yourself the power and authority to reach out and move the people you speak to, whoever and however many they may be, every time you talk. Peter Settelen came to public attention through the help he gave to Diana, Princess of Wales. During the most critical period in the Princess's short life he worked with her on every aspect of her speeches, helping her to re-discover her true voice and give her the confidence to express her passion on subjects such as AIDS, Eating Disorders and Women's Mental Health.
