There are few books that help you maximize your company's resources to the fullest. Highly Recommended!
The Pitching Bible is an enjoyable and thought-provoking book that is written with clarity, insight and humour. It takes you on an illuminating journey through the seven secrets of a successful business pitch. Paul Boross explains that he learned the hard way about what does and does not work when pitching. As a consequence he has used his vast and varied experience to create a book that is overflowing with practical ideas and techniques for preparing and delivering a winning pitch.
With subtlety and skill the book challenges the assumptions that the reader brings to it. To support this process Paul regularly offers questioning, reflection and information points for the reader. You are encouraged to work your way through each `secret' and reflect upon your thinking and practice in key areas of pitching. For example, when do you think a pitch actually begins? Who is vital in the process of making you win a pitch, is it you or is it your audience? How is it possible to always remain in control of your pitch? What type of language makes you more persuasive when pitching? Paul Boross offers solutions to every question that he raises. What I like about his solutions is that they are based on real-world experience and have real-world application.
This is an impressive book that actively engages you as a reader. When you finish reading The Pitching Bible you will notice that there is an eighth `secret'...buying a copy of this book will give you a competitive edge when pitching and will help you win more business. I recommend that you buy one.

I have seen Paul Boross in action and marvelled at the effect his presentation techniques have on an audience. His book, The Pitching Bible, in a simple, straightforward way makes one think hard about the art of presenting; it isn't just a matter of standing up and doing it. Mr Boross explains in crystal clear terms the dynamics between Presenter and Audience and how the presenter, you, can Seize The Day. If Presenting or Pitching fills you with fear and loathing but you've got to do it, or you just want techniques on how to improve your already sparkling performance, this is the book for you. Highly recommended.

It is rumoured that Captain John Sparrow’s wise observation… “It’s not the problem that’s the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?”… was inspired by this book. It would not surprise me.

Good enough to be a beach read.

The Pitching Bible presents a very clear and easy to follow method for taking your pitch and refining it to ensure every possibility that's under your control is covered. Crucially, it doesn't 'dumb down' its approach or tell you what to say - so you still have to work at developing your pitch.
Coaching Excellence - A straightforward, no holds barred guide to the steps to coaching mastery. As well as boiling down the real keys to an effective coaching session, it also explores the behaviours that coaches sometimes have that hold them back from making a real difference. A powerful read from start to finish, and a book that I'm revisiting constantly to help refine my skills and push through the fear, whoever's fear it happens to be.
