By Connect Sports Staff, June 18, 2015

jock-talk-book-0302 copyWhen called to speak in front of a group, do you take the ball and run with it or fumble? Beth Noymer Levine, founder of SmartMouth Communications and coach to Fortune 500 executives, outlines five steps to becoming a respected orator in her new book, “Jock Talk.” Public speaking can be like a layup if you follow the lessons (both good and bad) from athletes like Lou Gehrig, Tiger Woods and Jason Giambi. By being audience-centric, transparent, gracious, brief and prepared, anyone can hit a home run when stepping up to the plate, she says. Remember, meetings are about communication. This book can help you get in the game.
