If You've Got to Get Up & Speak, New Book Explodes One-Style-Fits-All Myth

Helps You Get Your ACTorType Together

NEW YORK, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With personal branding emerging as the key to success, how can we possibly get noticed in this ever growing, constantly changing traditional and social media saturated landscape? This new book has the answer and takes the fear out of any public speaking role. Like actors on the stage, we all embody a predominant ActorType, which can be working for or against us. Knowing your unique ActorType, its qualities and "fatal flaws" can help you stand out from the crowd and powerfully lead a meeting, make the case or conduct a successful presentation. Do you know your ActorType?

(Take the 5-minute quiz here to learn your ActorType!)

Robyn Hatcher, founder and principal of SpeakEtc., is pleased to announce the availability of her new book, entitled Standing Ovation Presentations (Motivational Press, 2013). As a communications skills expert and former actress, as well as successful trainer and presenter, Robyn not only delivers everything you need to know to perform a compelling presentation, she also introduces us to the nine "ActorTypes" that define our communication styles, namely the Hero, Villain, Innocent, Sex Symbol, Curmudgeon, Whiz Kid, Super Hero, Buddy and Comic. Employing a unique and compelling perspective gained during 30 years of acting and script-writing, Robyn helps you identify your primary communication style and shows you how to effectively "play your part" by using your strengths more effectively and mitigating your weaknesses.

Standing Ovations Presentations is available online in paperback through Amazon and Barnes&Noble.
