A survey from the London Times found that more than 4 out of 10 respondents listed public speaking as their number one fear – above illness, accidents, and even death.
But for many people in business, the ability to speak confidently, clearly, and persuasively in front of a group has wildly accelerated their success – whether they work for a corporation, own a small business, or freelance.
“Surveys keep confirming that presentation skills are vital to success in business,” says an article in the Undercover Recruiter. “If you can become that person that gladly steps up to talk, you will earn more, build your business, or get promoted quicker, and your personal brand will be boosted to new and greater heights.”
For instance, a Fortune 500 computer company once asked me to give an hour talk on marketing at one of their meetings. After the talk, they gave me a contract for $67,000 worth of copywriting!
There are thousands of meetings held across the globe every business day. Many require one or more attendees or guest speakers to give talks. If you’re selected, wouldn’t it be great knowing you can, with ease and confidence, deliver a scintillating presentation that will knock their socks off? Well now, you can…..

Praise for Bob Bly’s marketing and business advice
"You are awesome! I will always come to you first for the products that I need. You have class, integrity, brilliance, naturally gifted, and you are second to none! I am impressed with and appreciate your prompt response."
"Once in a blue moon, you get the chance to meet a living legend, one of the great men who has shaped his chosen field. In my unending pursuit of powerful marketing, I came face-to-face with just such a man. Robert Bly is America's Top Copywriter and a genius marketer. He's authored over 70 books for McGraw Hill and others, and gets paid more per word than nearly every author in America. Like all great men, he is a teacher and mentor extraordinaire. He freely shares the secrets of turning marketing into money."
"Bob, your stuff is always so good that even though I'm retired now, I have to read it!"
"You are someone I've grown to admire greatly. You share your knowledge with and encourage people in achieving their dreams, trying new things, and learning tricks of the trade. It's a rare 'guru' in our world today who is thoughtful and kind enough to help up and comers find the path to success. In my opinion, you are the very best. I'm grateful to you."
"After considering a number of high-level marketing professionals and reflecting on the matter for several weeks, I made the decision to ask Bob Bly to share the stage with me for my Twin Keys to Wealth-Building Conference. The reason I chose Bob is because I am convinced that he can deliver more tangible value to conference attendees than any other marketing or Internet expert on the planet."
--Robert Ringer, best-selling author
"I love your e-mails. Read every single one of them as they come in."
--Dr. Paul Hartunian
"I have huge admiration for your work. You're one of the few guys out there selling real information -- and selling it at a reasonable price! I think what you're doing is head and shoulders above others."
"I receive so many e-mail offers -- too many -- but Bob always delivers a product worth having. The marketplace for writing and marketing products has become over-hyped; in that environment it's reaffirming to see that Bob continues to stand for a level of quality that matters -- and happily, at a price that works."
“Thank you for sending out your e-mail newsletter. There hasn’t been a single issue you’ve sent out that I didn’t learn something.”
“I have bought a lot of your info products. The price is the most reasonable of what anyone is asking for their info products, especially considering the information is more to the point and more valuable than 99.99% of what is out there on the Internet.”
