Larry Tracy, Called by Pres. Reagan 'Extraordinarily Effective Speaker,' Promotes New Book on Presenting—Bring Home the Bacon

Larry Tracy, Author of Bring Home the Bacon: How to Deliver Persuasive Presentations that Get "Buy-in" from ANY Audience

Pressure packed environments for briefings and presentations don't get much tougher than the world Larry Tracy existed in when he was the senior intelligence briefer to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during recurring Cold War crises. Then his world got even tougher when, as an Army colonel, he was assigned by the Reagan White House to the State Department to explain and debate controversial policies to frequently hostile audiences throughout  the county. So successful was he in these "encounters" that President Ronald Reagan called him "an extraordinarily effective speaker"

He has put this "been there, done that"  experience into an amazing e-book on persuasive presentations with the apt title Bring Home the Bacon: How to Deliver Persuasive Presentations that Get "Buy-in" from ANY Audience. After leaving the military, Tracy took his knowledge and wisdom to the private sector, coaching executives and project managers how to create and deliver  highly-effective, contract-winning presentations.

On Thursday, August 30 Larry Tracy was a guest for a 35-minute interview on James Lowe's syndicated radio show discussing the book, his military career where he developed his system and various experiences which shaped a presentation and communication philosophy which works on a variety of levels. He is slated to be a weekly contributor to the show where he will explain in depth his easily-learned system to make fear of speaking a person's ally, not foe, and thereby become an outstanding public speaker.

The heart of Bring Home the Bacon is Tracy's S3P3 System, especially the practice technique he brings from the military—the Murder Board, a simulated practice presentation before a live audience which allows a presenter to learn from his/her mistakes before the "real thing" James Lowe and Larry Tracy went through this key part of the book, richly illustrated by real world examples from the author. Tracy continually emphasized the need for pre-presentation preparation by speakers, whether that is mastering content, researching the target audience or creating an effective style.  

In the interview, Tracy brought out a unique advantage of  improved public speaking, the "Halo Effect" This is a term psychologists use to show that a person who is a good speaker is considered by others to be very intelligent, highly competent and a "go to" person. On the James Lowe's programs, Tracy will provide in-depth commentary on the art of persuasion, including techniques used by great speakers of the past which are applicable today.

About Larry Tracy:

President Ronald Reagan praised Larry Tracy as "an extraordinarily effective speaker" for his speeches on controversial policy issues addressing some of the U.S. toughest audiences. A former army colonel, Larry originally managed and trained the Pentagon's top briefing team, the Defense Intelligence Agency's Presentation Division. He was responsible for daily strategic intelligence briefings to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Secretary of Defense, Congressional staffs and other Washington decision-makers. His skills took him to the State Department, where he delivered hundreds of presentations on contentious foreign policy issues, many of them debates occurring before demanding, often hostile, audiences.

Described by his superior as "the State Department's most sought after and articulate spokesman," he was invariably assigned the most difficult speaking assignments. Larry helps training speakers and presenters to convert audiences that have already made up their minds. His specific training and consulting specialties include presentation skills for executives, public speaking for professionals, persuasion skills training, managing audience emotions, and preparation for media appearances.
