I am delighted to have discovered Viv Groskopf! I bought her book after listening to her highly-recommended podcasts, also entitled “How to Own the Room”. In her podcasts, she interviews woman achievers about their presentation and leadership styles.

The lessons are very real because the women are.

This book explores the reasons why the speeches by women and women speakers we applaud have succeeded. I found myself taking the time to google and find each speech, and listen to it (again, in most cases) to hear what Viv was describing. The speakers are very different, with very different success secrets – from Michelle Obama to J K Rowling.

Again, the lessons are real because the women are.

The book provides a fascinating, off-centre insight into speaking success (by women).
