Speak up!

This book will equip you with the tools to hold conversations about your future, your fears, your plans and concerns that are stopping you achieving your full potential, with your family, friends, and peers, and give you the opportunity to choose the path that is right for you and for your skills and talents. It will also give you the knowledge to plan, prepare, and be confident in interviews, asking the right questions, listening to the interviewer, and using the experiences that you already have to influence the way a conversation may go.

It’s not just a case of changing the way you think. I’ll provide you with a set of tools that can be applied in many different scenarios and situations, using the knowledge and experiences that you already have to greater effect. You will have many experiences and sources of knowledge, but you probably just haven’t realised it yet. Once you are comfortable with the steps in this book you will find that you will start to enjoy your conversations more, be yourself in them, and feel more confident.
