Great book for anyone holding meetings or speaking ...

As a speaker and writer I am always interested in new ways of thinking and speaking and making things crisp and clear. This guy does it. And for those of you who attend way too many meetings, and especially for those like I used to be holding and attending way too many meetings ... this book is for you. It is a simple process the author lays out and anyone can do it f they will. Great advice and it is actionable the minute you read it. Worth the price and then some.

A "Must Have" For Anyone In Sales!

I teach a seminar on reaching the Motorcoach Travel Industry, and I make it a point to hold up a copy of Ron's most excellent book at every session, and encourage every attendee to purchase a copy for themselves. I can't endorse this book an industry populated with the "seven minute appointment" format for conventions, "Say It In Six" is just about flawless for proper preparation to sell in this marketplace. Highest possible recommendation!

Say it In Six

I love this book. I am a college speech instructor, and this book is a great adjunct to my college speech text. The students have to give a number of speeches that must be short, and Say it in Six gives excellent justification for the short and to the point speech. This book speaks to the real world of public speaking. There is a great idea about the short speech to save your job. This is very practical in the world of down sizing. I have this book on my recommended list of speech books to purchase, and from time to time I quote from it. I tell my students to seek out the experts when they give a talk even if they think they know much about their topic. I may know much about speech, but Ron Hoff is my expert. Jessica Kelpine

Save time, money and sanity through shorter meetings

Mr. Hoff make's the point that most meetings are a waste of time and they are a waste because people don't come to the point. Further, you can say almost anything worth saying in 6 minutes. And he proves it by timing how long it takes to recite his first chapter and coming in at 6 minutes and a couple of seconds, while clearly making his point. If you can get your point across, clearly and forcefully, succinctly then you should. The amount of time wasted in excessive verbiage is staggering. Step one to improving productivity by saving time in meetings and presentations is realizing there's a problem. Step two is figuring out how to shorten a presentation to make it more effect (not just shorter). Step three is motivating people to apply step 2. This is a concise book on how to give a concise, effective, presentation.

Start a revolution in your company!

I spend a LOT of (wasted) time in meetings in my company. Most meetings go off on tangents. When I hold my own meetings, I'm adamant about keeping them efficient. This book tells you in no uncertain terms how to limit what you say in the meeting to only what is important to your audience--and how to say it in only six minutes. That leaves the rest of your meeting time to reach consensus, and hopefully get everyone out of the meeting and back to work before the end of the day. I began analyzing problems with meetings immediately, and I intend to apply the principles in this book to my next meeting. Even better, this book is concise--I read it in less than six hours. You will not be wasting your time buying this book! It's going to become my meeting bible.
