 "Have to present? Here's your primer. Clearly Kurt has keen powers of observation having watched and worked with speakers. The Inside-Out Speaker offers powerful information about really connecting with your audience, being authentic and so much more.There is such a tendency to listen too much to what others think you should be saying. I think this book is for anyone who has to speak - not just professionals. If you have a presentation of any sort this book is a terrific guide.”  
Kate Delaney | National Radio Host of 'America Tonight with Kate Delaney'

"I have been a public speaker for nearly 55 years. I would have gotten better, quicker, if I had not had to learn his truths by trial and error. I highly recommend this book to everyone and anyone who knows that they have an important message to convey.”
Lloyd Box | Public Speaker  

I am a big fan of chapter one, pointing out the distinction between "Supportive Communication" and "Constructive Dialogue," where the former is the nicety you share with strangers while the hard-hitting truth of the latter is required to get better. I will be using this distinction going forward."
Jeffrey S. Davidson | Public Speaker

"As a recent inductee in the the Speaker Hall of Fame, I credit much of my success to working occasionally with speaker coaches and my constant desire to hone my skills. I am also quite critical of most "speaker coaches", as I have heard many. That being said, this book digs into the core fundamentals of what it takes to connect with an audience and deliver a program that not only touches the head, but the heart as well. Written in a direct and conversational style, the book is packed full of easy to implement tools and techniques to elevate one's platform success. It not only reinforced what I have been doing, but it also revealed some areas that I need work on.

A breath of fresh air in a speaker training world full of the same old speaker techniques, I definitely will recommend this book to any speaker looking to elevate their presence and performance on stage."
