Communicate a Message That Counts in Moments That Matter

"Not just a book about presentation skills (though if it helps you nail your next presentation that's great), my aim with Lead the Room is that it equips you to leverage your platform to lead and mobilise your team and help you become a more effective leader." Shane M. Hatton

In the moments that matter, leadership matters. Our world is more globally connected than ever before, with easier access to information than at any point in history, yet in the important moments people aren't just looking for something that can inform them, they are looking to someone who will lead them. The abundance of fascinating and practical information in Lead the Room is neatly presented in three parts, as the author talks you through what he calls his `three big obsessions':

  • Positioning - Developing your character and your narrative, building your credibility and managing your reputation as a leader.
  • Messaging - Determining the value you offer, defining the message you want to convey and delivering your message with impact; and
  • Developing - Getting better at thinking, investing in yourself, asking for feedback and learning how to fail.

Lead the Room is full of thought-provoking anecdotes and examples, that will inform and educate - and often make you smile. After reading this book the next time you stand up on your platform, whatever that may look like, you'll see it as more than an opportunity to speak to the room; rather, you'll see it as an opportunity to lead the room. Every moment matters. Use it as an opportunity to say something that truly counts.

Shane Michael Hatton

Shane Hatton has spent his career in the business of people. From his early days in event management, recruiting and mobilising large volunteer teams for community events, he has navigated the challenges of leading at scale.

Knowing how difficult it can be to get one on one with everyone, he has learned the value of leveraging a communication platform to build trust and rally people around a common vision. From more than a decade of consulting and in-house experience in marketing and communications he has learned the importance of effective messaging to not only be heard but remembered. Shane also spent seven years as a minister.

During this time, he was leading and mobilising volunteers in one of Australia’s fastest growing churches and responsible for building and nurturing the health, growth and culture of a rapidly expanding campus. This experience at the intersection of people, communication and leadership, along with his studies in business and psychology, laid the foundation for his work today as a trainer, mentor and speaker to leaders and teams.

A self-described 'charismatic introvert' Shane has learned how to face the fear of public speaking and embrace the potential of platform leadership. Melboure, Vic.
