Benjamin Franklin Digital Award
Independent Book Publishers Association honors innovation in electronic publishing.
“Be the Best Bad Presenter Ever: Break the Rules, Make Mistakes and Win Them Over” by ImprovEdge Founder and CEO Karen Hough has been named Gold honoree in the Benjamin Franklin Digital Awards. The awards, launched in 2013 by the Independent Book Publishers Association, recognizes innovation in electronic publishing.
“In writing a book about presentation skills, a visual medium, we knew a video series was the most relevant way to ‘show’ which rules to break, not just ‘tell,’” said Hough, already an Amazon.com best-selling author, “The Improvisation Edge: Secrets to Radical Collaboration at Work.” Both books were published by Berrett-Koehler.
“Videos for this book illustrate real people throwing out the old rules of presenting in order to be their authentic selves – in front of 2 or 200 people,” said Hough. In training thousands of people, Ms. Hough has used her unique presentation approach to take the anxiety out of one of the greatest fears in business.
An acknowledged thought leader on negotiation, presentation skills, executive presence and women’s issues, Ms. Hough is a sought-after speaker for corporate and public events in the U.S and internationally.
