Out Front

How women can become engaging, memorable, and fearless speakers

In Out Front: How Women Can Become Engaging, Memorable and Fearless Speakers, Deborah Shames presents the unfortunate truth: Women will never reach their full potential if they avoid public speaking, copy male counterparts, or follow outdated techniques that do not value their authentic voice.


For women to lead, influence, and make a difference on the global stage, they must overcome speaking anxiety and embrace their own voice. In Out Front: How Women Can Become Engaging, Memorable and Fearless Speakers, Deborah Shames shares her personal journey and provides readers with the skills to speak publicly and present with confidence, precision, and purpose.


By blending compelling anecdotes and performance techniques from a successful director, producer, speaker trainer, and author, Out Front reads more like a novel than a business book. The practical skills have immediate application, and are designed to enable women in every stage of their careers to overcome speaker anxiety and welcome the power of their own voices.
