"Russ and Kevin share powerful principles for delivering outstanding presentations. When you read this book, you’ll never approach presentations the same way. I highly recommend it!" - Jon Gordon, Best-selling Author of The Energy Bus and The Seed
Russ Peterson Jr. and Kevin Karschnik introduce us to the three presentation killers and the one truth in public speaking. Their newest book, Corporate Ovations documents powerful tools like CABA, MAS, and 9-Minute Presentations to help captivate and inspire our audiences.

Reid Ryan, President of the Houston Astros Baseball Club, has written the foreword for the book. As someone who speaks to large audiences regularly, Ryan has confirmed that Peterson and Karschnik have documented the formula for success in public speaking. Ryan said, “After reading Corporate Ovations you will approach every speech, presentation, or conversation differently; whether you are speaking to a large audience, presenting to the board of directors, or even sharing stories with your buddies at a baseball game.”
Mark Sanborn, Award winning speaker and bestselling author of The Fred Factor and You Don't Need a Title to be a Leader reviewed the book and said, “Corporate Ovations thoroughly covers it from A to Z if you want to learn to give an effective presentation. You’ll find lots of great ideas to make you a more powerful communicator. It will teach you to put the audience first and that will help make you a first-class speaker.”

About Corporate Ovations: Your Roadmap to More Effective Presentations
Corporate presentations are notorious for being “death by slideshow” and for some reason we have just accepted it as the norm. It just comes with the territory. Time wasted in meetings due to a poorly prepared presentation is a direct waste of company resources. Using the excuse that you “work better under pressure” so you will just “wing it” is nothing more than an admission of laziness and also a lack of respect for the audience’s time. Corporate Ovations places the focus where it should be always… on the audience. With the roadmap from Russ Peterson Jr. and Kevin Karschnik, your presentations will be developed in less time, delivered more effectively, and ultimately save time and money. The book is available for $24.95 at www.Amazon.com and www.iSpeak.com/Store Learn more at www.CorporateOvations.com
