I have just finished reading "Nailed It" for the second time - an informative, practical guide to putting together impactful presentations by Daniel Pennington. Daniel is a professional speaking coach based in Pensacola, Florida. He has honed his skills over years of work in television and film across the country as well as training business leaders and coaches at some of the largest companies in the USA, at Studer Group (where I first met him) and then the Studer Community Institute. 

Daniel's experience shows on every page of this concise masterpiece. It is an easy read and flows smoothly, so much so that I read it the first time through in less than 2 hours and had to go back and read it again to pick up more gems. I know that I'll be reading it a third time and probably a fourth and fifth time or more. Daniel Pennington really "Nailed It!" on this one.
