A practicing attorney, a university professor, and a professional speaker, David Dempsey explains how to speak with power, passion, and persuasion.

Legally Speaking illustrates how to:

  • Master Stage fright
  • Analyse audience members and adapt a presentation to reach them
  • Create a powerful presentation
  • Utilize pauses, gestures, vocal power, and eye contact to maximize the impact of any message
  • Intensify the power of a presentation with effective visual aids
  • Capitalize on stories and quotations to make points memorable

Attorneys spend countless hours analyzing cases, reviewing facts, deposing witnesses, and drafting briefs and motions. But prevailing in a courtroom and conveying a message in a convincing fashion to judges and juries is far different and requires masterful communication skills.

David J. Dempsey is a practicing attorney with the Atlanta, Georgia law firm of Coleman & Dempsey, LLP. In his last 25 years, Dempsey has distinguished himself as an award-winning professional speaker, having won the Toastmasters International Speech Contest for the State of Georgia in 1987 and 2000.

He also serves as an adjunct professor of public speaking at Oglethorpe University, Atlanta, Georgia where he has taught public speaking for sixteen years, helping students and business leaders enhance their public speaking skills, increase their confidence, and create more persuasive speeches.

He is also a presentation skills trainer who has worked with many Fortune 500 companies training, consulting, and conducting seminars on the art of powerful communication.
